A Golf Guide for London

Golf London





If you’re looking for a different way to relax and unwind your senses while you are in London, why not give the world-class sport of golf a try. The city’s fast pace life can often become overwhelming and a good chill out session of golf is a great way of getting some fresh air and a bit of exercise too., London is made up of acres of parks and serene landscaped areas, greater than any other city of its size in the world, so while most of the golf courses in the UK are nestled away in the countryside, it’s no wonder that London features some outstanding and beautiful golf courses.

Whether you’re a novice or professional or just looking for an entertaining family day out, golf is the perfect activity to enjoy the outdoors and get away from the stresses of everyday life. If you’re not entirely sure how to practice your putting, you can always take up some golf lessons or join a golfing school, but be sure to check the prices as training under a fully-qualified PGA golf professional can be quite expensive.

Golf can also create the perfect setting for corporate organisations to build relationships with clients, customers and colleagues with undisturbed and anxiety free surroundings that facilitate appointments, deals and opportunities while providing an excellent form of entertainment.

1. Finchley Golf Club
