A short golf break just across The Channel offers lots of opportunities for great courses, including the wonderful area around Bruges in Belgium.

The charming seaside town is just 90 minutes from Calais and is surrounded by some top golf courses which welcome visitors, particularly midweek.

The hotels in Bruges are extremely comfortable and central, perfectly located for a stroll to one of the many traditional restaurants dotted along the cobbled streets. Did we mention the beer?
