FORMERLY home to the Duke of Bridgewater, Worsley Park, A Marriott Hotel & Country Club provides an idyllic setting for a relaxing break.
Set in 180 acres of parkland, the property buildings date back to the 17th century and were restored and converted into the hotel in 1998. Highlighting this property is the classic championship golf course, designed using the full potential of the natural terrain and featuring seven water hazards.
The course boasts many memorable holes, including the signature seventh hole, consisting of a short par-3 over a lake, playing to 177 yards and surrounded by colourful woodland.

Prices: £35 (hotel guests), £60 (visitors)
But while this stunning 18-hole championship course is simply a big enough excuse to stay at this Marriott venue alone, you also have plenty of other sporting venues within an hour of your location.
