Enjoy golf and fine-dining at Mannings Heath Golf Club with its latest stay-and-play packages, including a chance to sample food prepared by Steven Edwards, winner of this year’s coveted ‘MasterChef'.
Edwards, 27, head chef of The Camellia Restaurant at South Lodge Hotel, Mannings Heath’s sister property, hit the headlines when he beat off competition from professional chefs from all over the UK to be crowned champion of the popular show this month.
From £135 per person (based on two people sharing a room), visitors can experience a one-night bed-and-breakfast stay at the luxury hotel in Horsham, West Sussex including two rounds of golf on Mannings Heath’s award-winning courses.
As well as featuring 18 holes each on the club’s Waterfall and Kingfisher courses and use of the driving range, the breaks also provide the opportunity to sample a three-course meal from the hotel’s daily menu.
And visitors taking a longer break can also head to Mannings Heath’s sister club, The Manor House Hotel and Golf Club in Castle Combe, near Bath, to play its high-regarded ChampionshIp Course - rated the best in Wiltshire by the ‘Top 100 Golf Courses in England’ and dining in its Michelin-starred Bybrook Restaurant.
Steve Slinger, general manager at Mannings Heath Golf Club, said: “Everyone at Mannings Heath is very proud to be associated with South Lodge and the accolades it is collecting for its food, with a Michelin star in 2011 and now Steve’s fantastic win in Professional MasterChef.
“Anyone staying on a golf break with us with a love of fine-dining is certainly in for a treat with the mouth-watering combination of award-winning golf and food to match.”
Mannings Heath, set in 500 acres of beautiful Sussex downland, is owned by the Exclusive Golf group alongside The Manor House and boasts two 18-hole layouts – the Waterfall Course and Kingfisher Course.
The former, a members-only course, hosted the 2013 English Women’s Amateur Strokeplay Championship in August while the latter flows gracefully through the Sussex countryside, testing the skills of the most seasoned player and is rated by the ‘Top 100 Golf Courses in England’ as the best pay-and-play course in the county.
Exclusive Golf was formed in 2010 and is a part of Exclusive Hotels and Venues, a prestigious group of individual, stylish hotels in the south of England, located in stunning surroundings and presenting a luxurious tranquillity in beautiful English locations.
