Lindrick
What a fantastic golf place, from the moment you drive in thru the electric gates you see the glorious clubhouse and beautiful 18th hole back up the hill. You get a buzz straight away and understand t
Blairgowrie (Lansdowne)
Five and a half years after I was last here, I returned to the Lansdowne this morning, courtesy of an invite from Golf Perth
Vila Sol (Prime & Challenge)
I find Vila Sol a very pleasant though demanding (BT) course with excellent greens. Try to play 1-18 (nice variety), 19-27 not being worth it (boring...). Warm-up practice highly recommended since hol
San Lorenzo
Was it the wheather (mostly cloudly and very gusty wind) that diminished the pleasure of what is supposed to be one of Portugal's better courses? When I enjoy a golf course, I usually can visualize mo
Royal Portrush (Dunluce)
I have been lucky enough to play the Dunluce at Portrush twice, this time as part of a tour encompassing Portstewart (Strand) and Castlerock, and I have to say that it was even better than I remembere
Askernish
The land is part of a large estate owned by the island community. After protracted and at times heated negotiations the go ahead was finally given for Askernish to be resurrected under strict environm
Machrie
This is a teaser of a course. At 6292 yards it is about the same length as Machrihanish. There are a number of short par fours, for example the 1st, 3rd, 8th, 15th and 17th, where the blind shot is no
Dunbar
The course is in two sections with a narrow slither of land in the centre bordered by the old deer park stone wall on the one side and the sea on the other. This strip is just wide enough for two fair
Renaissance Club
Many of the holes are tree lined but, to the credit of designer Tom Doak, the trees never intrude into the line of play. Some of the bunkers were quite interesting with long, thin shapes and wispy gra
Pebble Beach
Pebble Beach; Ah the very name of it sends shivers downs the spine of golf fans everywhere. It’s the American equivalent to St Andrews, the course with as dramatic a coastline as it has history. The p
Troon North (Monument)
Nice public course, but for a venue with a reputation for wonderful playing conditions, we found far too many unrepaired pitch-marks on the greens which took away from the otherwise immaculate conditi
Troon Country Club
Once ranked in the top 100 golf courses in the world, from an architecture point of view, this Tom Weiskopf creation is living in the dark shadows of the many spectacular courses which have been built
Estancia
On April 21st 2014, all greens were dug up for maintenance. Miraculously, by the first week in June, the green surfaces were restored – and at just 9 months old, they rolled with perfection. The Estan
Desert Forest
Arguably the most destructive renovation in America. The majority of players are going insane with how extreme the greens are, specifically how firm they are. We were hitting crisp irons (lob-wedge, s
Craigielaw
The fairways can get very hard and fast – a deliberate policy as there are no sprinklers other than on tees and greens. The bunkers are all quite steep and are very well placed. There are also a numbe
Luffness New
Luffness New is not overly long but it is still a very good test of your golfing skills. The rough in places is quite penal. The bunkers are neat and well defined and the relatively small greens are v
Kilspindie
Don’t let the total length of just 5480 yards mislead you. This is a wonderful course to hone your accuracy and have lots of fun. And when the wind blows off Aberlady Bay you may find some of the hole
Fulford
This is has been a bucket list course I've wanted to play for a few years now and I finally got the opportunity to play Fulford GC last week. It certainly lived up to expectations, a brilliant he
Lindrick
As a member of a golf club in the North Leeds area and a visitor of the brilliant Moortown and Alwoodley courses nearby on numerous occasions, I'd been hoping to play at Lindrick for some time and I f
Loblolly
It’s a thrill to play at Loblolly which certainly holds its own as one of the toughest courses in the area alongside neighbours such as
PGA National (Champion)
I must admit, outside of the Bear Trap holes, this course is most forgettable due to the boring collection of straight flat holes. This course just tests your ability to hit the ball straight. Further
Pine Tree
Once ranked in the Top 100 golf courses in the world, this Dick Wilson creation from 1962 represents the best flat course in the States. This course arguably challenges every golfer with the most diff
Gullane (No.3)
The first and last three holes lie on the east side of the A198 and perhaps mislead you into thinking there is not much variety here. However, the remaining twelve holes are all interesting and have e
Gullane (No.2)
From the public clubhouse you see only the 1st and 18th. Two rather flat and uninteresting looking holes on the east side of the A198. Once you cross the road, there is a wonderful variety of holes, s
Belfry (Brabazon)
Our family of four (Mum a 22 hcp, Dad a 10 hcp and two teen boys both 8 hcp) played here twice on the 8th and 9th of April as part of a stay and play deal paying £129 for each round, each person, incl
Alwoodley
What a fine, fine course this is. For me, those comparing it favourably to Sunningdale or Woodhall Spa are quite a way off base, but it stands up against any other inland course I have seen. Natural h
Moortown
Really like the tree clearing programme done here. Now has the moor or heathland feel the name implies, though the newish housing estate by one boundary is a pain, without being a blot. As a course,
Gullane (No.1)
Apart from the town of St Andrews, nothing typifies the feel of Scottish golf better than the lovely little village of Gullane. You literally just walk a few yards from the quiet main street and there
Muirfield
Although not right on the sea, several holes are within just a few hundred yards of the beach. Muirfield has beautiful springy turf fairways, wonderful bunkers and greens that are in quality close to
North Berwick (West)
North Berwick itself is a lovely seaside village and coastal harbour. On a still day, whilst you are waiting your turn on the first tee, you cannot help but feel relaxed by the surrounding scenery. Ge
Taconic
While there are only a handful of tee times available each day to non-members, that makes Taconic technically a public course and in my view, the best public course in New England and among the best
Royal North Devon
I've played here 3x now and have really enjoyed it every time. despite being very flat and very open, clever hazard placement makes a number of the holes really tight. The greens do not look great
Machrihanish Dunes
This is the first completely new links course to be built on the west coast of Scotland for a century and it is the first ever course to be allowed to be built on a Site of Special Scientific Interest
Machrihanish (Championship)
The 1st hole is claimed by many to be the best opening hole anywhere. I would not dispute that, ‘Battery’ is a par four of 436 yards. The tee shot is literally a carry of between 150-200 yards across
Scotscraig
Some observers may consider Scotscraig to be more of a heathland course, possibly because you have no sensation of being anywhere near the sea. In reality parts of the course are but a few hundred yar
Conwy
Played Conwy on a quiet Easter Sunday on a trip to North Wales. I'd played some 7 or 8 years ago and little has changed since then, which means that the high quality of the layout and conditioning re
Royal St Kitts
I am a very regular visitor to St.Kitts and Nevis, and have been playing this course since the mid-1990s. The revamp was much needed, and since then, it has, in my opinion, become the best course on
Penha Longa (Atlantico)
This is a lovely place to play golf. The setting is beautiful, the staff are great. The course is very playable, not too long and fairly forgiving. The greens were in terrific condition, the tees go
Elie
This is a short course of 6273 yards and there are one or two quirky holes but it is lots of fun in true golf of the links variety. The starting hole is unique in that you hit blind over a hill but yo
Leven Links
As is the case at Lundin, the first four holes run along the beach but in the opposite direction. These are all par fours with the 1st and 4th being the most difficult. You need to be left here with y
Lundin
The opening four holes run along the sea and are lovely old fashioned links holes. The 4th is by far the most difficult being a par of 455 yards with a burn in front of the green. The much photographe
Forest Pines (Forest & Pines)
Played Forest Pines for the 3rd time yesterday and as always it provides a great test. The condition of the course wasn't amazing, but that has to be expected with the horrendous weather we have endur
Yas Links
Brilliant Course in great condition. Recommend walking to enjoy fully the design and nuances of the course. When I played greens were fantastic - typical links with lots of Swales - would guess y
Portstewart (Strand)
Portstewart tiene hoyos espectaculares, dunas muy grandes hacen que el lugar sea único. No se puede dejar de jugar este campo, si se viaja a Irlanda del Norte. Excelente campo de golf.
Royal Portrush (Dunluce)
Uno de los mejores campos de golf del mundo. Después de muchos años sin jugarse el British Open en Irlanda, se jugará acá en el año 2019. Muchos bushes o arbustos a los costados de los fairways la hac
Royal County Down (Championship)
Magnífica. Sus fairways están entre grandes dunas y en muchos hoyos no se ven desde el tee de salida, ya que hay que pegar por arriba de las dunas. Campo de golf muy exigente, hay que estar jugando mu
St Andrews (Old)
El mejor campo de golf que he jugado. Sus hoyos son supremos. Pararse en los tees del 1 y del 18 para pegar adentro del pueblo de St. Andrews no se compara con ningún otro campo del mundo. Es muy impo
St Andrews (Castle)
This course seems to split opinion like few others with some loving everything about the place and others almost choking on their beer at the mere mention of its name. Our group of four all came away
Royal Porthcawl
What an amazing place! The course is fantastic, we played on a wet windy day and were tested throughout but such an enjoyably round of golf. The members and staff were some of the friendliest I have m
PGA Catalunya (Stadium)
An amazing course and resort we played in January in short sleeves and a light breeze. Couldn't recommend it highly enough great layout kept in great condition.
La Moye
Jersey is a wonderful island to visit for anyone wanting to experience a slice of the British Isles with a twist of France. I‘ve visited this island only once but would go back to play this course aga
Montrose (Medal)
Played 36 holes in late March - the morning round off the yellows and the afternoon one off the whites (refreshing to be allowed to choose one's tees). Absolutely loved the course - everything I
Huddersfield
Played late March 15 on a very windy (is there anything else at Fixby?) day. The 12th and 13th were closed for winter work but there is space for 2 extra short par 3's around the 15th hole to allow a
Moortown
Moortown has opened up significantly over the last few years. Numerous trees have been taken out such that, playing in March, one is able to see many fairways and greens whereas before often only the
Reserva Conchal
Played Reserva Conchal Golf Club the last week of March on a five day unlimited golf/practice package. Played here last year and enjoyed it so much had to go back again. Last year had nothing but prai
St Andrews (Kittocks)
The course is well bunkered, although some have been removed in the revamping of the course in 2008-9, and at times features long rough and has first class greens, some of which are quite large. The l
St Andrews (Torrance)
This is a really good test of golf with fairly penal rough. There are sea views from many holes, especially on the back nine, and at dusk the lights of St Andrews can be seen not far down the coast. <
Effingham
This challenging but fair course is worthy of local renown and is greater than the sum of its pastoral origins. It is a rare Harry colt classic beautifully routed over rolling down land, with green
Lake Nona
Quite simply an incredible golf course set in such a special place. I was lucky enough to play Lake Nona twice for the Ian Poulter Charity Classic and the course blew me away. The moment you drive thr
Barnbougle Dunes
It's only after playing more of the worlds great courses (18 of the Top 100 at present) that I really understand how magnificent Barnbougle Dunes is. I've played here seven times now over the last eig
Alcanada
I am no fan of RTJ and if you have played a few of the courses he has designed, you will recognise his style straight away. However, could not help to be seduced by the sheer beauty of the site and th
Sunningdale (Old)
What a course! I went and played Sunningdale Old Course mid March and played in a group of 3 people and the course was in really good condition for coming out of the winter period. It has to be up
Royal St George's
Myself and a friend travelled south from London for the day to play this course that I first got a glimpse of during the 2011 British Open during the rain soaked Saturday. The first thing that stru
Crail (Craighead)
Situated above the old Balcomie links, Craighead is even more exposed to the wind than its neighbour. The greens are excellent and the fairways are hard and very linksy. The bunkering is well placed b
Crail (Balcomie)
Until relatively recently it was a rather odd layout with one par three on the front nine but five on the homeward nine. The balance is now slightly better with two on the first nine but there is stil
Addington Palace
Played the course today with 3 guests, there was also a society playing today. The course was so well managed we had a 3 1/2 hour 4 ball. The front 9 holes are tighter than the back nine, with some st
Newport Golf Club
Definitely better than a top 32 spot in Wales, in the parkland stakes only the 2010 course,
Alcaidesa (Links)
I'm surprised by the rather reserved reviews. During a 3-day golf trip to Costa del Sol, we played Finca Cortesin, Alcaidesa Links, La Reserva, San Roque New and Old, and Torrequebrada. I must say tha
Torrequebrada
Having played Finca Cortesin, San Roque New, Alcaidesa Links and La Reserva, Torrequebrada was a nice finish to our tiring golf trip. Some of the holes were very challenging, but in general it was a g
San Roque (New)
The course maintenance could have been better but it could be excused by heavy rains in the preceding week. The accommodation at The Suites might have been 5-star in 1997 but now could be given 2 star
San Roque (Old)
The course maintenance was average but could be excused due to heavy rains in the preceding week. The accommodation at The Suites might have been 5-star in 1997 but now could be given 2 stars at most.
La Reserva
I expected more from this course judging by its ranking. The design is great, but there were some problems with the fairways due to heavy rains over a 10-day period. It's worth a visit, but I preferre
Finca Cortesin
I've played this course a couple of days ago and I can say that it was an awesome experience. I've read the positive opinions of other players and I can only agree. The thing that struck me most apart
Troon (Darley)
Great layout spoil by the litter. I even wrote to the council and complained about the litter and got a letter with a list of excuses back. Clean it up and there is a great little golf course. I'll ma
Kingsbarns
Located just six miles from St Andrews the 190-acre site is a combination of land once used for farming and a parcel near the sea that was the old 9-hole Kingsbarns Links which effectively ceased in 1
St Andrews (Castle)
This estate was previously used for farming and is not sandy links soil. Nevertheless, they have created an attractive layout that looks like and plays like a genuine piece of links land. The course i
Karlovy Vary
This is my favorite Czech course. Great variety of holes some of which are very tight. I dare say that some people will not like some of the blind shots but I believe that to be part of golf. The last
Yasmine Valley
I have played the Yasmine course many times and it is one of my favorites despite it never being in great condition, though recently it has got a bit better. Lots of variety and the 17th is a zig zag
Southerness
I was an overseas member of Southerness for many years (>30) and have never tired of the course. In the last few years the condition has been close to perfection, quite how they manage to keep it so p
Golf Nazionale
I might be a little bias as I have been playing on this course for 25 years now, but i feel pretty honest saying that is one of the top 10 golf course in Italy and has nothing less that many great par
St Andrews (Eden)
The original opening two holes have disappeared and the course now starts with what was the 3rd hole. The 1st green is one of the most intriguing on any of the St Andrews courses. It is divided into t
St Andrews (Jubilee)
My view is that the Jubilee is now the most picturesque and most fun to play of the major courses administered by the Links Trust. Visually, the Jubilee has the benefit of being the closest to the lov
St Andrews (New)
The New course is judged by many to be more difficult than the Old. It is sandwiched in between the Old Course and the Jubilee on the seaward side. It is tighter and has more gorse lined fairways than
St Andrews (Old)
I do not think there are any weak holes on the Old Course and the 1st, 11th, 16th and 17th holes are the standout ones for me. In places it can get a little confusing as to just where you are meant to
Santander
Long course, surely suitable for championships, but lack of originality. There are many much better fields in Spain, even in Madrid: Club de Campo or El Encin without going further.
Hamilton - Scotland
Played this course many years ago and was eager to give it another go Unfortunately my nostalgia trip was short lived, the condition of the course was not dis-similar to a municipal. Disappoint
Strathaven
Top course and in superb condition. Lucky to have played this 5 times and never falters
Bearwood Lakes
Played course recently for first time and mixed feelings. Greens are good and some thoroughly enjoyable holes around the middle of the card but for me the starting holes and last four felt like filler
Los Leones
Caminar por los fairways de Los Leones es disfrutar de sus magníficos árboles con un estado de mantenimiento del campo de golf 10 puntos, con sus greens siempre con muy buena velocidad y sus fairways
Monifieth (Medal)
The course layout resembles the shape of an axe. Holes 1 to 6 and then 16 to 18 are the handle whilst holes 7 to 15 are in more of a square area furthest from the clubhouse. The first six holes all ru
Rocas de Santo Domingo (Roja & Azul)
Los 18 hoyos viejos son los mejores de Chile, excelente campo de golf, realmente se disfruta mucho jugar en Rocas con sus fairways entre bosques espesos de magníficos árboles.
Panmure
Don’t let your first views of the opening and closing holes fool you. The first two holes are quite flat and fairly easy and I am rather puzzled as to how the first, a par four of 289 yards, is rated
Potrerillo De Larreta
También llamado por los jugadores de golf el "Paraíso de Larreta", debido al magnífico entorno de las sierras de Córdoba, los arroyos que cruzan sus fairways, los morros de piedra, su diseño y perfect
Carnoustie (Championship)
There are some who do not like Carnoustie. I have heard comments that the course is “dull”. What on earth do they mean? Sure there are no towering dunes or holes beside the seashore but every hole is
Montrose (Medal)
The layout is a little unusual for a traditional links. The first hole heads to the sea and then holes 2 to 9 run more or less parallel to the seashore. From the 10th to the 15th the course runs inlan
Kilmarnock (Barassie)
Had the privilege of making a return visit to Barassie after an interval of several years. A lovely spring day and a glimpse of the eclipse on the drive down to the coast whetted my golfing appetite.
Irvine
Returning to Bogside after some years I was hoping to be persuaded that my previous lack of enthusiasm was misplaced. Alas, not. The weather was perfect : blue skies, no wind. The course was in good n
Ashridge
Beautiful location for a classic course, makes a fascinating companion piece with nearby sand less Berkhamsted and the under rated Stocks. As per some other reviews, it's quite hierarchical with the
Blackwell
I'm lucky enough to have friends who are away members at Blackwell so have played it a number of times. A classic historic members club, classy but unshowy, with a course featuring a good variety of
Rosslare (Championship)
Played on a lovely early spring day, memorably started watching a solar eclipse from the car park whilst getting the clubs out of the car. Very quiet and unbelievable value at 20 Euro on a March mi
