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.
