Cabot Links
It was interesting to play Cabot Links a couple of times in conjunction with Cabot Cliffs to see the contrasts. There is a little more overall charm to the ďLinksĒ as it is compacted into a smaller p
Cabot Cliffs
Cabot Cliffs lived up to my anticipation. So many great strong holes. Even the unconventional ones had charm. The routing was a great use of the terrain. The elevation changes, unlike so many othe
Dyrham Park
Thanks to Kate and her team for another hugely enjoyable golf day with a friendly and professional welcome. Dryham Park is now a stunning golf course. The works over the last 2 years have elevated i
Craigielaw
I played this course for the 6th time last week. I come to East Lothian every two years to play all the courses in the area. I always love visiting this area with it having so many brilliant courses a
Dundarave
Dundarave is located in a very charming area of eastern Prince Edward Island. Amazingly, it was routed through an old existing course, Brudenell River, and the result was very good. Three of the hol
Sagebrush
Wow, I am surprised that a course of this caliber is currently out of commission. I have played it a few times, and it was certainly obvious that the location was not ideal. Essentially located in v
Links at Crowbush Cove
Crowbush Cove is in a truly beautiful location. The conditioning of the course is very good. And the staff is very pleasant. But, that is where the accolades stop. From a design aspect, this cours
Ayodhya Links
The Ayodhya Links Golf Course is located above a vast marshland has been dug up and turned into an undulating terrain. The streams and lakes, which lie throughout the course, are made by pumping up wa
Aberdovey
This is links golf at it's very best. A true test of how to play golf in a variety of conditions. When the wind blows it really tests. When it doesn't it is just plain simple pleasure. I have played n
Crowborough Beacon
This course is on high land, well above sea level and a worthy member of the English Top 100. Being this high, there is a slight delay in the growth of the course each year when compared to courses on
Woburn (Duchess)
Best golfing resort in the UK? Nonsense. Yes, the three Woburn courses are good but to compare with the word class experience of Gleneagles, Wentworth or Turnberry is just plain silly. Treat yoursel
Royal Dornoch (Championship)
I made the travel to this course for the third time this May. The first time I have been there was six years ago, when I just picked up golf a year before. The colours of the course, the sea, the hill
Sagebrush
This is a great golf course and one that is not be missed. Unfortunately due to financial reasons Sagebrush did not open in 2015. We all hope it will be back in business in 2016.
Moortown
Played in August 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed my round, quite a testing course as you can score very well here but then there are some holes which are just designed to catch you out. Also some very tig
St Enodoc (Church)
Played in August 2015 on a Sunday morning, very impressed and challenging course. Some wonderful holes, including the 6th and 10th which I found to be the most memorable. On the back nine you play a f
St Mellion (Nicklaus)
Whilst not the best course I have played (Carnoustie) it is certainly one of the toughest, any wayward shots are punished, it reminds me of the Dukes course at Woburn, but more unforgiving. There are
Kings Acre
Kings Acre surprised me in a number of ways: there were far more elevation changes around the course than I was expecting, the fairways were a lot drier and firmer than Iíd anticipated and the greens
Easter Moffat
The opening hole at Easter Moffat rises up and away from the imposing old manor house that now doubles as a clubhouse before a sporty little short par four livens up proceedings, doglegging right then

Cardigan
So I visited again with my brother in law. So often you think, well my first impression was a bit over the top. Not here. The par 5s are perhaps the weakness, but the rest is outstanding. I genuinely
East Kilbride
East Kilbride had never been on my intended playlist but when it made a recent appearance in the Lanarkshire Best in Region rankings I just had to investigate further. Itís apparent very early on from
Wigtownshire County
As it was one of the few Scottish links courses that I hadnít played, Wigtownshire County had been on my hit list for some time. It was evident from the opening holes that much of the courseís extra l
Lochmaben
I was a little surprised to see Lochmaben make it into the latest edition of the Dumfries & Galloway regional chart so I thought a little bit of quality control might be in order when paying a recent
Kirkcudbright
How good is it after fronting up at a second (or even third) tier course with zero expectation of what youíre going to find, to then walk off the 18th green three and a half hours later in raptures, h
Hillside
Played Hillside yesterday and loved it. The weather was great and not too much wind to contend with. Some of the holes are absolutely stunning with some well positioned bunkers that are touch to mak
Royal Portrush (Valley)
A quality course in its own right. Massively unheralded due to status as "second" course at Portrush. If this was a course on its own it would be far higher up the rankings - and far more expensive. A
Royal County Down (Championship)
Simply the best. Absolutely brutal course but it beats you up with a smile on its face and a twinkle in its eye. Don't even bother keeping score and just enjoy the course for what it is. The back nine
Dooks
Far and away the most scenic course I've ever played (including RCD, Turnberry, Pebble Beach, Nefyn). A simply amazing location. The course is good but not great. In the glow of the location we ten
Royal North Devon
As the crow flies I live a mere 2 miles away from Westward Ho! I havenít played Royal North Devon since 2011. Please donít ask me why. On Sunday morning I returned to Englandís oldest links to meet Yu
Dingle - Ceann Sibeal
Really pleasantly surprised by Dingle. On first glance when approaching the course this looks nothing more than a field but, on closer inspection, there is plenty of movement on the land. An excellent
Frilford Heath (Red)
Recently rejoined Frilford after 20 years - I was a junior member. Whilst a previous reviewer is right that the new holes (2-4) as a result of the building of the Blue Course are not as good as the ol

The scorecard says "Stunningly Natural Naturally Stunning". After playing Ardglass during the afternoon on Sunday July 26th with my son, the views were strikingly impressive and thoroughly enjoyed pla
West Cornwall
I played Lelant last Thursday with Rachelle on one of the wettest days of the year (the wind was also blowing at 20 mph). Unfortunately it was so wet we called it a day on the 11th and skipped across
Cabot Cliffs
Wow! Thatís my reaction to Cabot Cliffs. Though Coore and Crenshaw were given a mile of spectacular clifftop land to work with, they also got 3 sizeable wetlands. Moreover, many acres of forested upla

Just half an hour from the center of Krakow and Katowice this course is a proper golf course. It is long from the back tees and is set over gently Krakow Valley Golf Course - Photo by review</td>

Drumpellier
A visit to Drumpellier was long overdue, a ranking position in the Lanarkshire top ten providing the impetus for a long overdue return, a decade after my only other visit. It was therefore almost like
Frilford Heath (Blue)
The Blue is my least favourite of the three courses. The best holes seem to be at the start of the round (especially 1, 2, 3) but after that (especially after the 10th) the course becomes fairly unins
Frilford Heath (Red)
The Red used to be my favourite at Frilford, but I'm afraid the changes to the opening holes (especially 2 to 4) to accommodate the Blue seem just so out of character to the rest of the course that I
Frilford Heath (Green)
My personal favourite at Frilford. Always in good condition with top class greens, the Green course is a real delight. Accuracy is at a premium (especially off the tee), with heather, gorse, trees and

My wife and I received a warm welcome at the Club. The booking process was easy and considerate in that the use of a buggy was recommended to cover the undulating terrain. The course itself is very pi

Nice course with beautiful views of the desert in the San Diego area. Verj enjoyable as it is not too long but requires good accuracy. The course conditions were excellent, even though the greens coul
Newbattle
My round at Newbattle started very brightly, with the opening hole playing to a lovely sunken green, followed by a tee shot on the short par four 2nd that plunges down to a right doglegged fairway. Af
Broomieknowe
The opening and closing three holes at Broomieknowe are nothing to write home about, with all six par fours running parallel to each other on rather a flat piece of land close to the clubhouse. In fai
Roxburghe
Have just visted this course today, 13th August. Have to say it is one of the best courses i have ever played. We played it using our Bunkered vouchers and from the moment we arrived we got nothing bu
Highlands Links
Did you ever finish reading a book or listening to a piece of music that everyone else loved and wonder why? Thatís how I felt after playing Highlands Links. Yes, the scenery was lovely and yes, the g
Machrihanish (Championship)
For the vast majority of golfers Machrihanish is a difficult place to get to, certainly by car from Cheshire, but to any lover of traditional links golf I would say make the effort at least once. Righ
Danang (Dunes)
Overrated. Played this track last week, thought it'd be up there with the best in Asia I've played (Red Mountain, Dalat, Siam), but not nearly as good or interesting. I found it a very up and down tra
Cabot Links
The original course in Inverness will take a back seat to Cabot Cliffs when the latter opens next year. But Cabot Links is a fine course in its own right. Rod Whitman has paid homage to the classics w

Royal Ostend
This course is really good fun & one of contrasts. A proper links course but you have to cross busy roads and you can see a lot of street lights. Short in yardage yet exposed to the elements & tough i

Firstly, what a lovely club. A superb club house with very friendly members and staff ( a massive contrast to Royal Zoute, which was a difficult place to visit). Royal Antwerp is a serious course, si
Royal Porthcawl

Royal Zoute
What a shame! This is a gem of a design over great golfing country but it is in terrible condition. The grass is patchy, the bunkers are decaying and poorly maintained. I could not recommend a visit,

Wow, the greens were superb and some of the vistas, especially of the 4th, were incredible. Played in some very stiff wind and I feel that this helped the course show its full teeth (when the wind die

Everyone goes on about the Red Course and its 6/6/6 format but the Blue is a tougher test I reckon. 17 beautiful holes only ruined by the new par 3 10th. I play the course once a year in a society day

For golfing traditionalists who prefer links to inland courses, the buggy golf experience at Lough Erne will always be something of a hard sell, no matter how good the resort is. A recent favourable r
Royal Aberdeen (Balgownie)
One of my favourite golf course in Scotland. Definitely in the top 10 of the British Isles. The dunes are huge and the first nine holes are really spectacular as it is quite difficult to see the fairw

Lovely course and far more interesting and fun than all the other courses in Belek. Right by the sea, especially the second 9. The greens were slow, but August is out of season. We teed off at 6pm an

With the U.S. PGA arriving this week, I thought it an appropriate time to record my thoughts on the half dozen rounds Iíve played here. For golf geeks, the first question is how to assess a course tha

Donít expect to play championship golf at Dungannon. The Standard scratch score is two strokes less than the par of 72 off the medal tees (FIVE less than par off the regular tees) so thatís a clue as

Had plans to play all the Aberdeenshire links courses but visitors were turned away from Royal Aberdeen and Silverburn courses thus had a day to kill. Missed out on Panmure last year in my Angus Links

A delightful course with a lovely feel both on the course and in the clubhouse where we were warmly welcomed and well looked after. I look forward to returning to try and squeeze in 36 holes!

Like its counterpart Woodhall Spa Golf Club - to which it is often compared - Ganton is renowned for its fierce bunkering. Much like the bunkers at Woodhall, the majority of the bunkers at Ganton are
Karlstejn
Played in the rain - great views of the castle. Difficult climbs on some of the holes - taking a buggy is advisable.
Ostravice
Definitely worth a visit if you're in the region. Consider taking a cart as some holes may sap your strength. Nice views, interesting layout, great greens, good food at the restaurant.
Astoria Golf Resort
I loved this course - the layout is so interesting and the upkeep perfect. The clubhouse is nice. I'm not awarding 6 stars as this is reserved for some very special places like Hamburger Falkensteiner
Kynzvart
I am of two minds - while I enjoyed the course and found it to be very interesting and challenging, I believe that the employees both in the club and in the restaurant are not very motivated. Firstly,
Broadstone
Broadstone GC is my favourite course in the UK. It must be one of the only courses whereby you could say every hole is a signature hole, they are all spectacular. I travelled from mid KENT to come to

Without question, this is the most underrated course in the State. I would easily place it in the top 20. Over the past 2 years, the distinctive bunkers have been restored and will take your breath aw

Wherever this course is rated, it should be higher. William Flynn contributed to many of the courses in Eastern Pennsylvania and this is among my favourite. Itís a classic example of length being comp
