SELF DRIVE IN ENGLAND & WALES

While we generally recommend that golfing groups, particularly first-time visitors, opt for a car or coach & driver, the self-drive option is often ideal for smaller groups of up to four golfers. Self-drive groups of more than four golfers will require two or more vehicles to maintain maximum comfort levels.

In choosing the self-drive option, we recommend that you consider all the factors involved, including driving on the left hand side of the road, the often less than excellent condition of smaller roads, directions and fatigue. We also suggest that you make sure to get a vehicle large enough for your golfing needs.

A wide range of self-drive vehicles are suitable for groups of various sizes (from 2 to 4 golfers) and they are classified below. While some smaller vehicles than those profiled below are also available, these are not recommended.
