Golfers across Ireland are being invited to experience one of the finest courses in the south-west of England after The Manor House Golf Club unveiled its latest stay-and-play packages.
Set in 365 acres of stunning countryside in the village of Castle Combe, near Bath, the popular venue is offering exceptional value to visitors this autumn and winter – with a one-night break and two rounds of golf available from just £99 per person.
Barely an hour’s flight time from Ireland, The Manor House is easily accessible from a number of UK airport including Bristol and Cardiff, making it the ideal location to host players from abroad, both individuals and groups.
As well as including 36 holes on its highly-regarded Championship Course – rated the best in Wiltshire by the ‘Top 100 Golf Courses in England’ and playable all-year round – the ‘Waterfall Lodge’ breaks feature one night’s bed and breakfast, a three-course dinner in the Michelin-starred Bybrook restaurant or clubhouse and unlimited use of the driving range.
Packages are available until the end of March 2014, with one person in every eight able to stay and play for free, and accommodation is provided at the club’s Waterfall Lodge, overlooking the 18th green, where guests can relax and unwind after a hard day on the course – helped by a chilled bottle of lager that awaits each guest on arrival.
In addition, golfers seeking an extra bit of luxury can enjoy a similar length stay in the award-winning adjacent Manor House Hotel with the same golf privileges from £142 per person. Dating back to the 14th century, the hotel was described as a “real gem of a hotel” by the most recent official AA Hotel Services rating and its five-star facilities include a collection of 48 bedrooms and suites.
And visitors taking a longer break can also head to its sister club, Mannings Heath Golf Club in Horsham, West Sussex, to play its two courses, the Kingfisher and Waterfall – venue for the 2013 English Women’s Amateur Stroke Play Championship – with the club also offering its own accommodation.
Steve Slinger, Exclusive Golf’s manager, based at Mannings Heath Golf Club, said: “The Manor House’s close proximity to a number of airports and short travel time makes it the perfect location for Irish golfers looking for a UK break.
“There are few more stunning settings for a golf break, the club has a first-class set of facilities and one of its added attractions is that, as it drains so well, golf buggies can be used 365 days of the year.”
The Manor House and Mannings Heath are owned by Exclusive Golf, which was formed in 2010 and is a part of Exclusive Hotels, a prestigious group of individual, stylish hotels in the south of England, located in stunning surroundings and presenting a luxurious tranquility in beautiful English locations.
