Bridge and Golf Breaks

At Budock Vean we’ve hosted bridge and golf holidays for over 30 years … friendships have been made, points have been gained and many a pack of cards has been shuffled. We’ve had enquiries asking whether we would host sessions for players looking to improve their bridge skills, so we are delighted to unveil two NEW weeks for improvers.  So, if you don’t feel you’re quite ready to join the competitive break for experienced players our new training breaks could be just the ticket.

Our Budock Bridge Academy breaks are on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis and include use of the golf course, swimming and leisure facilities, tennis and snooker. Free time is factored into all breaks so you can explore the local area. 


Bob Blackmore has a fine reputation for running our competitive bridge weeks for experienced players three times a year. These breaks are extremely popular, and our geusts travel from far and wide to attend. We are delighted that Bob will be returning in 2020 so please book early to secure your space. 

Included in the price is: Welcome drinks reception, prize-giving evening, tuition from EBU Professional, competition entry, fees and prizes. Master points are awarded and partners can be provided for individual players. The morning analysis and training session is completed by 11.30am and the duplicate bridge starts at 6pm with a break for dinner. Rubber Bridge is offered for those who do not want to play golf.

Plese note due to social distancing restrictions our October and November bridge breaks will not take place in quite the same way as before. We are contacting all those booked on these breaks to discuss options with them. 


Sunday 25th April departing Friday 30th April 2021
