Situated in the Chiltern hills in Oxfordshire, The Springs Golf Resort and Spa is a newly refurbished golf club that is the perfect destination if you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of London. Built on a 133 acre plot of land that was once owned by legendary guitarist Ian Gillan from the band Deep Purple, the resort is surrounded by rolling hills and beautiful farmland that provides a picturesque backdrop to your round. It is just over an hour’s drive from the capital, and while golf is the main attraction here, there’s plenty on offer at The Springs for the non-golfer, too.

The Tudor manor at the springs sits on top of a hill looking out on the countryside and has been refurbished to become a boutique hotel.
