Bespoke golfing breaks to the hidden gems of the Peak District and surrounding areas are now just a click of a mouse away following the establishment of a new travel partner to Golf Tourism England.

Online independent tour operator Custom Golf Trip is providing tailor-made breaks to 15 courses in the heart of the glorious countryside of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and surrounding counties.

Colin Young, founder of Custom Golf Trip said: “We are the only company offering bespoke golfing breaks solely to these fantastic destinations.

“The area is only two hours’ drive from London and more than 50 million people live within a four hours’ radius yet its golf courses are relatively unknown.

“What can be better than playing golf in gorgeous countryside with spectacular scenic views on value-for-money courses knowing that all the arrangements have been made by a locally-based expert?

“The area has some fantastic courses and there is plenty to do and see beyond the fairways.”

As well as forming links with golf clubs Custom Golf Trip is working with hotels from Premier Inns to boutique selections and those offering spa facilities.

Colin, who has a wealth of experience in customer service and administration from his years in retail, lives in the area and is perfectly placed to offer a personalised service: “As well as taking care of the golf and accommodation I can provide advice on restaurant and pubs,” he added.

“This a relatively untouched part of England in terms of golf travel. Golf here, whether on a parkland or moorland course, is unspoiled and offers tremendous value.”

Custom Golf Trip is a new member of the rapidly expanding Golf Tourism England initiative that aims to maximise exposure of England’s glorious golf courses to players throughout Britain and abroad.

The membership organisation was established last year to bring together English golf courses, tourism operators, accommodation providers and leisure attractions to jointly market the nation’s fabulous golfing heritage.

Andrew Cooke, CEO of Golf Tourism England said: “It is pleasing to see the emergence of a tour operator specialising in areas so rich in excellent, but relatively unknown, golf courses. GTE’s role is to raise the awareness of England as a golf destination, and our strategy is to focus on developing the country regionally. Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and surrounding counties have truly great golf to offer, and we are delighted that there is now a tour operator dedicated to the region who will know the best hotels and restaurants in the area to ensure that visiting golfers have a memorable experience.”
