Love golf, and need a holiday? These fabulous holiday parks have their own golf and pitch & putt courses, so you can keep practicing for par while enjoying yourself on a short break. Here’s another tip too – if you want to beat the rush, why not try a midweek break in April and May?
Haven holiday parks with golf courses
Haven has a number of 9-hole pitch & putt courses at holiday parks along the coast.
In Scotland, home of so many incredible courses, guests can practice their pitches and putts on the par 3 course at Craig Tara, which is close to the famous course at Turnberry.In the north of England, there are short courses at Haggerston Castle near Berwick and Lakeland in Cumbria, where the par 36 provides a challenge. Several Haven parks on the east coast have their own courses. Reighton Sands near Filey in North Yorkshire has a par 34 with stunning sea views. If you can’t keep your mind off the scenery and on the golf, you can hire golf carts to track down balls from the inevitable hooks and slices. Thorpe Park in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire, has a par 33 and a smaller pitch and putt course, so guests can practice their drives, chips and finishes with a few hours on the fairways. Hopton, in the serene surroundings of Great Yarmouth and The Orchards, near Clacton-on-sea in Essex, are fun par 3s for that all abilities can try out. Allhallows near Rochester in Kent, is another par 3. And on the south coast, Church Farm near Chichester in West Sussex has its own 9-hole par 3 golf course.

Tattershall Lakes’ 18-hole golf course
Tattershall Lakes in Lincolnshire has its own 18-hole golf course. It’s a par 66 that is short enough to give beginners a sniff of a chance, but with enough hazards dotted about to test the most seasoned of golfers.
