Few coun­tries il­lus­trate the ex­pan­sion of golf tourism bet­ter than Poland. It’s not just that they have some golf cour­ses, it’s that they are re­ally good. Sand Val­ley is as al­lur­ing as its name sug­gests, a clever de­sign that mixes some strong holes with lots of fun ones (and some se­ri­ously sporty greens). It has chic on­site ac­com­mo­da­tion too.

On the other side of Gdansk, the Sierra re­sort (pic­tured) has sim­i­lar ap­peal; a solid park­land with a strong back nine punc­tu­ated by wa­ter plus lux­ury ac­com­mo­da­tion in the form of vil­las and apart­ments.

Gdansk’s new air­port of­fers cheap, reg­u­lar ac­cess from the UK, you will scarcely be­lieve the low cost of green fees, ac­com­mo­da­tion, beer and burg­ers given the qual­ity you en­joy. We can only think of Slo­vakia’s Pe­nati re­sort that has any­where near the same qual­i­tyto-cost ra­tio. An­other su­per op­tion lies to the west, near Szczecin. Modry Las, ranked by Golf World among the Top 100 in Con­ti­nen­tal Europe, has 27 holes as well as beau­ti­ful on-site ac­com­mo­da­tion.
