Stick with your original thoughts and look to IanM for guidance. You should be able to find a suitable hotel or guesthouse in the Mumbles or Gower area. Then you have a huge choice of courses to play from Porthcawl to Llanelli.

The best lads trip I've done is to Skipton. Loads of excellent courses all around.

Skipton / Keithly / Bingley St Ives / Northcliffe (cracking finishing hole) / Shipley all of these are great courses.

And Skipton has loads of pubs and restaurant to go at.

Travelodge, book early for best prices, is out of town 30 mins walk or a £5 taxi.

Shipley is a great course is it not. Five par 5's and five par 3's. It has that delightful short downhiller with the stream on two sides, followed by the monster uphill 200+ yards par 3 where you play to an up turned bowl. Our fourball played 36 holes, so eight attempts at that green and not one ball close.

Me and my group are looking at East Lothian for 2 nights 3 rounds on August bank holiday weekend, seen a deal for Craigielaw, Kilspindie and The Glen, for £395pp, staying at the Ducks Inn with B&B. I've looked at the green fees individually and I don't think it's far off. Any of the regulars advise if that's a good deal or not?

Not most people’s favourite but I go to yearly due at The Belfry. And we have a night out in Sutton and a night in the bel air nightclub on site. Always some wedding party or stag/hen night to crash.
Never had a bad time there.

Doesn't look bad for pricing. Hotels in the North Berwick area in summer are pricey.
Ducks has a good reputation for dinner. Good places in Gullane too for food. Nice Italian and Tom Kitchin's gastro pub.

The Glen is quite nice with great views, not a true links if that is what you are after. Craigielaw is not everyone's favourite though.
Would suggest swapping one of those for Gullane 2. Shouldn't be any more expensive.

Thanks Ken, I'll give them a ring to see what they can do.

Managed to get this booked and swapped Gullane number 2 for Craigielaw 👍🏾

Any suggestions for a steakhouse in the area? Don't mind driving a bit further out either. Cheers.
