Royal Dornoch (Championship)
Quite simply the most enjoyable links course anyone could wish to play and well worth the pilgrimage to get there. A classic links test where course management is key particularly the approaches
Rye (Old)
Rye was my first experience of a links golf course and it most certainly won't be the last! It was definitely the toughest eighteen holes I've played, but I came away smiling, marvelling at the design
Trump International Golf Links, Aberdeen
It’s been some time now since Top 100 correspondent Brian Ward played here, so I took the opportunity yesterday to check out how the course at Trump International was progressing. Much has been said a
Connemara (A & B)
I absolutely loved this course, and so delighted that I stumbled upon this lovely and challenging course. I have the played the Irish marquee courses of Ballybunion and Lahinch, which I enjoyed as wel
Deeside (Haughton)
Respondents to a recent Top 100 survey of North East golf courses alerted me to the golfing merits of the Haughton course so it was only right that I had a look around when I was in the Aberdeen area
Residence Tunis
I have to agree with Jim McCann. I was expecting a bit more and the first few holes are very much bounded by house and make it rather banal. then it opens up and becomes a much more interesting track.
Carthage
Tunis Carthage is a small and pleasant course. It is very short and tight. I have played it many ties when on business in Tunis. The condition is improving and it a good test but you have to hit it st
Aboyne
If ever there was a course laid out for a golfing game of two halves then this is it. The front nine is really rather uninspiring - I made only one note on my scorecard about holes 1 to 9 and it refer
Ballater
The previous reviewer was right to say there’s not great golf at Ballater but there’s certainly good golf to be played, particularly on the more challenging outward half. The round opens with a lovely
West Hill
Played West Hill in May 2015 and enjoyed the course very much. A fairly typical Surrey heathland course which with a par 69 for the 6400 yards was no pushover. Enjoyed the course design and thought th
Sand Moor
Played SandMoor a few times so was nice to come back, always been impressive and somewhat a hidden gem in Leeds because of it's famous next door neighbours in Alwoodley and Moortown. Condition is alwa
Woking
The last of the Three Ws is certainly no disappointment, starting with the decades old wisteria bush winding its way through the pillars on the restaurant terrace. What a classic venue, and well wort
Worplesdon
I played Worplesdon on a sunny May '15 Monday morning, mainly accompanied by a delightful longtime female member who joined me around the 5th hole. In addition to being a very pleasant playing compa
West Hill
I played the course on a pleasant Sunday afternoon in May '15. Several members confessed to being horrified at the condition of the post-winter greens, but I didn't find this to be much of an issue.
Addington
I've played this wonderful course twice, roughly five years apart, and in each case during mild Spring weather. The course is maintained in very good condition. After a rather average uphill par thr
St George's Hill (Red & Blue)
I played the Red/Blue on a clear breezy day in May '15. The golf and hospitality staffs were both very efficient and welcoming. The course itself was a textbook of classic heathland design, includin
Wentworth (West)
I have played Wentworth many times over the years but since the changes I have to say that is not a course I enjoy playing. The bunkers are almost impossible for anyone to get out of unless your a tou
TPC at Sawgrass (Stadium)
Just returned from a trip to Sawgrass and I can report that the course is as fun to play as it looks on TV. The first few holes are not overly taxing although the first requires and accurate tee shot.
Old Head
Call me old fashioned, but if you’re going to call yourself a “Links” golf course, then your golf course needs to be built upon links turf in the true sense of the word and, generally speaking, comply
Old Town
This is the most underrated golf course in the United States. Talk about flying under the radar. Old Town Golf Course - Photo by reviewer
Tobacco Road
I give a lot of credit to Mike Strantz for building this mind-blowing course, and it’s a great shame that he is no longer with us. If golf had a roller-coaster, it would be called Tobacco Ro</td>

Western Gailes
Played this magnificent course as part of the Gailes experience in 2012. Dundonald and Glasgow Gailes are obviously excellent courses but WG is in another league. I’m from Australia and I would like t
Royal West Norfolk
I first saw RWN on my honeymoon in 2006. Doing the walk along the beach thing I decided to pop my head up to have a quick look at the course. It looked bizarre, funny looking bunkers, no one around, u
Hunstanton
Preferred Hunstanton to Royal West Norfolk. Played in the same week this Spring and thought Hunstanton to be in better condition and to be more interesting. The short par four 6th then the excellent p
Woodhall Spa (Hotchkin)
Truly superlative! The quality of the design, the condition of the course and the wonderful yet penal bunkers make this a world class venue. I haven't played Sunningdale but have played Loch Lomond, N
Bude & North Cornwall
We played Bude & North Cornwall on the way back from our Cornish week’s golfing in April and we were not expecting much but it exceeded our expectations. It’s a busy place and a clearly a popular golf
Trevose (Championship)
Trevose split the opinion of our group when we visited in April during a heat wave. There’s no doubt that this is a class course but compared to many of the other Cornish links courses it lacks the wo
St Enodoc (Church)
St Enodoc could be one of the world’s best courses if the holes around the church could be softened in some way. These holes are severe and not up to the incredibly high standard of the rest of the co
Mullion
It’s hard to concentrate on the golf at Mullion because the views are stellar. Some of the holes are unforgettable, like the 4th, but a few too many of the others fall into the more ordinary category.
Perranporth
Let me say that I really enjoyed Perranporth but I’ve never seen so many marker posts on any other course I’ve ever played. This is an uncompromisingly natural and traditional links course where I dou
West Cornwall
Cornwall was a gap in my golfing CV, so I visited in April during incredibly warm weather to play all the highly rated seaside courses and West Cornwall was a stand out surprise. It’s not as good as S
Hardelot (Les Pins)
Played this course in mid-May 2015 - was actually very impressed. The greens appeared to have just been hollow-cored, which was bad-timing, but the overall layout was excellent and we were thoroughly
Weston-Super-Mare
This is a flat seaside course with about five holes running right along the shoreline. But the odd thing is, there is not even a glimpse of the sea. A wall of trees and buckthorn shrubs runs along the
Burnham & Berrow (Championship)
Burnham & Berrow has a wonderful array of holes with dunes, blind shots, elevated greens, greens in dells and even some flat marshland. The opening three and two closing holes in particular are just s
Notts
Enjoyed our day course was good but a little cold reception from members, however didn't detract from a great layout.
Coxmoor
Fabulous course in the best condition I've ever seen it. Quick greens, great fairways and tees keep out of the rough mind.. Played notts and sherwood but this was the best for me, interesting rather t
Saunton (West)
Club selection can be difficult here as you negotiate some severe doglegs and play alongside the tall dunes. The opening hole is a lovely dogleg right to a green nestled at the foot of the tall line o
Saunton (East)
Much damage was done during World War II as this area was used as a training ground prior to the D-day landings. The damage was so great that the East course did not reopen for play until January 1952
Royal North Devon
Your first impression might leave you feeling disappointed as you survey the flat, rather featureless, opening and closing holes. This may even lead to bemusement when you also notice the sheep around
Bude & North Cornwall
Although the course dates back to 1891, it was not until January 1949 the North Cornwall Club and the Bude Town Golf Club merged. Originally, North Cornwall was for the landed gentry and senior milita
St Enodoc (Church)
There are no two holes alike at St Enodoc and some of the unusual features will keep you wondering what is coming next. The 2nd and 3rd holes are quite difficult par fours, well over 400 yards long, a
Trevose (Championship)
From the very first hole, I was impressed with the lovely springy turf of the fairways and high quality of the greens. Although the par fives are all relatively short, there are a number of par fours
Monte Rei (North)
Played this towards the end of a week of golf in eastern algarve. As others have reported Monte Rei certainly stands out from a service point of view, with American 5 star approach to service from col
Perranporth
Perranporth overlooks Perran Bay and is about midway between West Cornwall and Trevose. This is another James Braid design and you can bet that very little earth was moved, except for tees and greens.
West Cornwall
West Cornwall is not long at only 5884 yards, but some of the holes are very tightly situated, particularly with greens up against boundary fences and cliff edges. The first two holes especially can b
Mullion
The course is situated between two coves and offers magnificent views across Mounts Bay to Land’s End. There are some really memorable holes at Mullion. The 4th hole provides a clifftop tee and is als
Oceanico (Faldo)
We played this course 2 days ago. It was supposed to be the top course from our package of 4 Oceanico courses (Old Course, Victoria and Millenium). Even with an overall impressive design, playing so
Royal Waterloo (La Marache)
La Marache is, quite simply, superb. In fabulous condition and the most wonderful design set amongst mature woodlands. Although it opens quietly with two fairly routine par four holes, the third is a
Waterville
I played Dooks (along with Tralee, Waterville and Ballybunnion) in mid April this year. It was a fantastic trip, but sadly Waterville is the only course of the three that I have no urge to make the ef
Tralee
I played Dooks (along with Tralee, Waterville and Ballybunnion) in mid April this year. It was a fantastic trip, but Tralee would be the first course I go and play again. It was awesome. Yes the back
Dooks
I played Dooks (along with Tralee, Waterville and Ballybunnion) in mid April this year. It was a fantastic trip, but Dooks was such a pleasant surprise. I knew the other three would be something speci
La Moye
The outward nine is the longer of the two but has the unusual feature of two par threes in the first three holes. The 1st is slightly uphill to a plateau green. The second is the longest hole at 514 y
Royal Guernsey
Royal Guernsey has more to look at than just the usual features of a golf course. There are clusters of large stones which indicate ancient burial sites – you will be pleased to know that you can take
Royal Jersey
Whilst Royal Jersey measures just 6110 yards, there are three par fives on the front nine. The first four holes follow the coastline with the castle of Mont Orgueil in the distance.

Holes 5, 6
Moor Allerton
Not a course you fall in love with as previous reviewers have mentioned, but 3 loops of 9 holes provide good variety and a decent test. It is a bit bland in some places and lacks a bit of character- i
Sand Moor
Located in North Leeds and surrounded by two other great courses (Alwoodley and Moortown), Sand Moor is often overlooked by golfers visiting the county. However it is well worth a visit and has a vari
Kington
I have to declare an interest here - I was a member of this unique course as a young man (my parents moved to Kington when I was 18). At one point I was even, briefly, joint holder of the course recor
East Devon
First played East Devon in 1994 and finally made a vowed return in May 2015. I can't think of any reason to criticise the course but it just didn't seem to have any wow factor this time round. Didn't
Addington
A stunning golf course which was in superb condition. Many memorable holes and you can sense all the history when you walk the fairways. My favourite holes are 9, 12, 13 and 16. A must play golf cour
Hayling
The first four holes are on fairly flat and uninteresting land but from the 5th this course becomes far more varied and challenging. This is a great short hole of 163 yards. There is hardly any fairwa
Rye (Old)
The only par five at Rye is the 1st hole. A straight drive is needed into a fairway which is somewhat wider than it first appears from the tee. The second is a good par three of 180 yards. The green h
Littlestone
The opening is a rather gentle affair. This is a driveable par four of 300 yards with little by way of hazards if you hit it straight. The 3rd requires a rather frightening blind tee shot into the unk
Cruden Bay
Cruden Bay is charming in an old worldly way that as a lover of links I would recommend it be a staple of any visit to the Aberdeen area. A warm welcome was had from the pro shop team to the well info
Mortonhall
Almost picked out of a hat on a recent trip - needed to be handy for the airport - we played and were hugely impressed with the condition and layout of this superb course. Multiple elevation changes m
European Club
When our four ball had finished playing this course, we tried to figure out where it sat in our favourite ever courses. We all agreed it ranked in at least the top 5 and we debated its merits in the
Royal St George's
The first hole has all the features that make you remember Royal St George’s. Two very accurate and long shots are needed to avoid the deep hollows and three greenside bunkers. The par three 3rd hole
Royal Cinque Ports
The short par five 3rd hole is one of the best and most interesting at Deal. The fairway is a series of rolling mounds, rather like waves, with the green virtually hidden behind the last of the mounds
Roodepoort
Very open golf course. Plenty of undulation. And plenty of traps/hazards. Most of the fairways are in very good condition. Greens are lightning quick (except 7,8,9). Course marshalling is poor. Good p
Dundonald
Seriously good course, paper mill not as intrusive as I remembered...gosh its tough though....will continue to rise up as the continue to tweak it....only tiny criticism, do the bunkers all need to be
Queenwood
This is very special in many ways, great staff, great clubhouse, amazing service, membership stuffed with tour pros, probably the best greens in the UK, WOW......(sorry course is nowhere near as good
St Andrews (Castle)
What a great course.....what silly greens, spoiled it....could be as good as Kingsbarns....views great, lovely modern clubhouse......bonkers greens turn it into a lottery...shame
Loch Lomond
So I played LL again a few weeks ago. I loved it last time and I'm amazed to say its got even better. The service and people are still special..but they continue to improve the course. All the holes a
Felixstowe Ferry (Martello)
The course is pretty much divided in two by a public road. Holes 1-3 and 13-18 are on the sea side of the road and have a more natural true links feel. These seaside holes are also rather more exposed
Great Yarmouth & Caister
This is certainly links land but I found the whole aspect of this course as being quite weird. A racecourse runs right through the middle of the course and is undoubtedly the predominant feature. Ther
Sheringham
The course is a picturesque clifftop links laid out between the North Norfolk Railway line on one side and the North Sea on the other. It is very wind exposed and has seven par fours in excess of 400
Woo Jeong Hills
Woo Jeong Hills Country Club is a hillside course with good views. All par 3s are superb and demanding. Undulating fairways, a lot of waters hazards & deep bunkers protecting greens, an island green,
Wack Wack (East)
Wack Wack Golf & Country Club is an old flat course with each hole separated by trees. There are 2 courses, East and West. This East Course is a championship course while the recently built West cours
Ocean Club
Great course with amazing views. Too many great holes to pick a favourite. But all the holes with vistas of the ocean are worth a mention. Greens are fantastic. Don't go off the fairways as t
Turnberry Isle (Soffer)
A great course and lovely service. I had the pleasure of having to club pro's brother as my caddy, who knew the course very well. The course suits a long hitter. If you can turn the ball left an
Le Touessrok
What a lovely setting for a golf course. Never had to catch a boat to play golf. The course itself is very tight, so make sure you pack your straight clubs and have a big breakfast. The course suits

A member very kindly arranged for our group of seven golfers from the U.K. on holiday in South Carolina to play at the wonderful private members course. The first nine holes wind their way through a t

I played this course today for the first time. I was expecting a short, pretty course and possibly a poor relation of the West and East courses? I couldn't have been more wrong and consider the layo

Thorndon Park
I play most of my golf in Essex but never had the opportunity to play at Thorndon Park until recently and I can say that this is without doubt the best course in Essex I have played. In fact it would
Assoufid
A must-visit course when in Marrakech - very new (2014) but already in great condition. This is a desert style course with waste-areas on every hole and although you can play from these, the best advi
Hunstanton

Royal West Norfolk
Even though you may have the wind behind you for most of the outward nine, the first three holes are quite demanding, each being a par four in excess of four hundred yards. The par three 4th is only 1

Oceanico (Faldo)
I'm not a fan of Faldo designs and they are not a fan of me. I'm not sure he wants you to enjoy playing his courses. I think he wants to catch you out. By the 18th I was pretty sure he really did not
Palmares (Praia & Lagos)
Based out of Oceanico we ventured up the coast to see the sea. Firstly, the panoramic views enjoyed from the precipitously placed clubhouse, crowning the course before you, blow you away. From the

Old Fold Manor
Old Fold is set on a relatively small piece of land not far from the centre of Barnet, but truly makes good use of this plot. There’s a welcoming clubhouse but aside from that relatively modest fac
Thorndon Park
A thoroughly pleasant place to play golf. The club is approached down a long wooded driveway which gives a clue as to what follows. The course starts gently with a fairly tame, and relatively open
Ganton
There are many wonderful holes at Ganton, none better than the par four 405-yard 4th. The second shot is across a gully to an undulating and raised green with a very well placed bunker on the right. <
Seaton Carew
In 1974, the club agreed to an oil pipeline under part of the course. The proceeds from this concession enabled them to build four excellent new holes on the eastern side, where the land was once cove
Berwick-upon-Tweed
There is no easy start to get your confidence up at Goswick. The opening hole is a real tester. A par four of 392 yards, there is a big dog leg right where out of bounds runs the full length. The gree
Killeen Castle
A simply fantastic golf course that i came upon by chance. Certainly one of the best courses in Ireland and ranks with Adare Manor as the best in Ireland for Parkland type. Fantastic service, great v
