Mottram Hall – good deal

We’ve discovered there are some great deals to be had if you’re looking for a golf break in the next few weeks. We've already identified a handful in a recent feature, now here’s more to whet your appetite.

During July and August the De Vere Mottram Hall (tel: 01625 828 135), set in 125 acres of Cheshire parkland near Prestbury, is offering dinner, B&B plus two rounds of golf for £125 per person, based on two sharing. And in August the hotel, which has its own 18-hole course, is charging £47 for a one night mid-week stop-over (Monday to Thursday) including breakfast and golf.

If you’re planning a day out with the lads (or girls) it’ll cost you £40 apiece at Mottram for coffee and bacon rolls, 18 holes and a carvery to follow. But there must be a minimum of ten of you.

Throughout August, The De Vere Belfry (08709 00 00 66) is offering a £50-off deal, with its one-night Brabazon package, costing £149. Price includes breakfast, three-course dinner, 18 holes on The Brabazon course and use of the leisure facilities and is based on two sharing a standard or twin room.

Non-golfers pay just £69 (a £20 saving). The package is available Sunday through to Friday.

Thorpeness – made for golfers

Golf and Leisure Breaks (08000 272523) has a series of great offers not to be missed including a £208 weekend (per person based on two sharing) at Thorpeness Hotel Golf and Country Club,Suffolk, including two nights dinner B&B with three rounds of golf. During July and for just £68, however, you can spend one night in midweek, on half board and play two rounds of golf each, again based on two sharing.

The course, built by James Braid in 1922, is an 18-hole links and the hotel has plenty of other facilities including boating and fishing.

Take a 17th Century country house, blend it with modern facilities and a golf course set in Worcestershire countryside and The Bank House makes a great golf break destination. Complete with island greens, the Bob Sandow-designed course, will test golfers of all abilities.

Cost for a weekend half-board break including two nights and three rounds of golf is £130 per person (based on two sharing).

Wychwood Park Golf Club, is just minutes from Junction 16 of the M6 near Nantwich in Cheshire and close to the Joddrell Bank observatory, Chester Zoo and Alton Towers.
