Barwon Heads
My first shot at Barwon Heads went about 50 yards dead left into a clump of bushes just short of one of the houses that border the course. Immediately, I had two fears: 1) That my host, whom I had met
Frankly I'm not sure how this course is ranked 15th in the state. I've played Bear Dance and the Broadmoor West course that are ranked lower than CommonGround, and there's no way CommonGround is bette
This is the 3rd time i've played this course in the last year. The course layout is great, the welcome always friendly, and its a great test of golf with some big par 4's to contend with. If you've
West Berkshire
The course is in particularly good condition this season, with the greens very fast. It probably wouldn't make the top 200, but it certainly is value for money. It has got everything from drivable pa
First Warsaw
absolute fantastic course. in my 40 years playing golf i have never seen a more interesting challenging and naturally beautiful course. I have been in more manicured places however the raw nature
Karlovy Vary
Yes, this is one of my favorites in the Czech Republic. Every hole was interesting, some were spectacular. The course was in a perfect condition.
Port Fairy
In their lovely work on the subject of links golf, George Peper and Malcolm Campbell identify a handful of true links courses on the Australian continent. The least known is Port Fairy at the western
Berkshire (Red)
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!
Tradition Club (Royal New Kent)
A fantastic ride through the beautiful Virgina countryside. Mike Strantz was a genius of a designer and the golf industry lost someone very special when he passed. The course maintains a huge inti
Quite simply fun holiday golf at its best. Playing Dunaverty was a great way to gently break us in before challenging the big courses at Machrihanish. I agree with Mr McCannís previous review that you
Broadmoor (East)
This is the first course I've gotten to play in the Top 10 of Colorado, and the first course I've played that's had USGA championships held on it. The first thing that stood out to me when I walked up
Machrihanish Dunes
I finally made the journey to Argyle to take in the courses at Machrihanish. I can only think with the development of The Dunes it can only enhance the golfing landscape in the area. Taking in the two
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
Played in the rain - great views of the castle. Difficult climbs on some of the holes - taking a buggy is advisable.
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
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 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
Saucon Valley (Grace)
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
Eagle Point - North Carolina
This is a disappointing Tom Fazio layout which didnít impress. Itís certainly decent, but not the best course in his portfolio. The club is also going through a multi-year bunkering project which will
The minute you step into the menís locker room, you canít help but notice the framed pictures hanging around the room of every MacDonald/Raynor course they built. This just highlights that youíre at a
Portal (Championship)
The course has come on leaps and bounds recently and was in excellent condition especially considering the recent haeavy rain. The fairways and greens were rolling well and the greens were very slick
St Enodoc (Church)
Sheer golfing bliss! From start to finish you are treated to a golfing links of purity and unparalleled quality. Towering dunes, stunning vistas and classic links tests. Stand out holes are 6th, 10th
The third stop on our Hampshire/ Surrey border tour brings us to Hindhead, the others being Blackmoor, Hankley Common and Liphook. On balance these courses offer the best value/quality ratio in the wh

I have brought a few parties to Broadstone which is the highlight of our 3 day tour of Dorset. A fabulous golf course. Very helpful and professional office staff and friendly and welcoming in the pro
Bamburgh Castle
Played this course last week. Thought I was going to enjoy it as I love courses with views and undulating land and was delighted to have my expectations surpassed. It is true that this is not a champ
If I were to join one club on the Cape, it would be Hyannisport, referred to as ďThe PortĒ by the locals. This course covers a huge amount of land, which contributes to the fabulous routing and wonde
Diamond Creek Golf Club
Immaculate conditioning and an excessive amount of opulence in the clubhouse. This course is a tale of two halves. Diamond Creek Golf Club - photo by Fergal
A hidden gem (literally) in the mountains of North Carolina crafted by Ellis Maples. This is a perfect example of 18 really enjoyable holes, each of which is unique and you canít see any other hole fr
Jim Engh brought his unique style to Tullymore, especially with the distinctive bunkering which look like squiggles of sand meandering around the property. This course is not always visually pleasing
Dunes Club
I drove past the entrance gate twice before having to stop and ask a guy watering his plants for directions. The clubhouse is a small little house with a closet for a pro-shop, a closet for a locker r
Brokenhurst Manor
Very enjoyable, great variety, proper heathland golf, very natural location, amazing wildlife. We always pair it up with an evening game at The Burley golf club in the evening straight after, now that
Brokenhurst Manor
Surprised that there is only one review of this course which in my mind is a gem. The pro, staff and members were very friendly and helpful. A colt course with heather on top of some the bunkers which
Dunstable Downs
This is a decent course and deserves a review. There are many plus points: hard fast greens, good layout, natural undulation and views in some places of most of the rest of the country. The Eighth gre
This courses was one of my favourite on our Bournemouth trip, a short course maybe but it certainly made my playing partners think about their club selection off the tee. A few dog legs which suited m
Royal Marianske Lazne
I have played Marianske Lazne on 24 July 2015 and it definitely is not the best course in the Czech Republic. I could name

The Waterford Society had a wonderful day once again. The staff were very kind, helpful and efficient. The course was beautiful as ever. The catering was excellent. We all look forward to another visi
Six.of us played 36 holes at Ganton on July 3rd in baking hot conditions with the rough knee-high and the course playing very firm and fast. From the minute you arrive at the understated clubhouse and
Royal St George's
Wow; what a course. Played it twice in a day recently in July 15 off their 'white tees' and at just over 6700 yards it felt even longer ! Passed RSG many times over the years playing at its nearest
Dyrham Park
The Charity I work for held its Annual Golf Day at DPCC in July 2015. We had over 100 players competing and had a truly wonderful day. The Club was patient and attentive to our needs and did everythin
Royal Lytham & St Annes
Played here at the start of July 2015, decided to treat myself and booked this course to knock another open championship course off my list. Turned up mid afternoon and the course was quite empty,
LaesÝ Seaside
LśsÝ is an interesting course with quite a few good holes, but, you need to be able to pull off a long fade off tee to gain reward. Laeso Seaside Golf Course - Photo by reviewer
Thinking back to my day at Ashburnham about 6 weeks ago in June, initial memories are fairly sketchy being a sort of out-and-back track in relatively low duneland without too many views of the sea. H
Hardelot (Les Dunes)
I had not played The Dunes for 17 years and returned to Hardelot with my wife for a short break. The course has been substantially redesigned about two years ago and I failed to recognise many of the
I last reviewed Southerndown 4 years ago and I notice I awarded a 6 ball. In hindsight as much as I enjoy this course that may have been slightly high. I played again yesterday in a strong wind and e
A bunch of us arrived on a friend's yacht on a cold rainy day after about ten days cruising the fjords, and not really expecting to play golf. The staff at Meland set us up with rental clubs and off w
We had a chance to play Panmure before the Open at St.Andrews on July 17th. The course must be one of the better we have played in recent years. Perfect greens and well maintained fairways with a cha
Strathmore (Rannaleroch)
Had the privilege to play this magnificent course on Thursday 16 July 2015. The course was in great nick and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. We forgot our rain gear and we were supplied
Portmarnock (Championship)
From far away on the other side of the bay you can see the beautiful clubhouse arise and it is the first clue that one is about to enjoy a day on a traditional, historic linkscourse. I was pumped to p
European Club
Ah The European; where to start... After having played Portmarnock Old Course the day before we doubted the European could compete with that magnificent golfclub, but but these doubts quickly went awa
Moray (New)
Inevitably a "relief" course will suffer in comparison to its better known Championship sibling, and Moray New is no exception. We played as part of a fantastic 36 hole day closing with the brilliant
I have been fortunate to play the Alwoodley a couple of times as a very grateful guest. A very difficult course, particularly off the whites, with the punishing heather and its length being the main
The Alwoodley Golf Club is a magnificently understated layout, immersed in a beautiful landscape that gives one a serene feeling of isolation. The ground over which the course is laid upon could best
King's Lynn
Played this course in a lombard qualifier and in a practice round. What a joy it was to play. Very picturesque and diverse, with some fantastic holes. This is not the longest course by any means and t
Played the Oxfordshire for the 1st time in the Captains Day and I must say what a fantastic test of golf it is. The views from the clubhouse, 1st/10th tees are to die for. I was very impressed with th
Ayodhya Links
An excellent course with pristine condition greens and fairways! Also very fast, challenging putting greens with unpredictable wind conditions. Total exclusivity every time I've played. Tough course,
Dyrham Park
Dyrham Park exceeded all expectations for our corporate golf day. Great location, challenging course and friendly, professional staff who ensured we had a great day. Would definitely recommend this
Loudoun Gowf
If I could write a tagline for Loudoun Gowf it could be The Good, The Similar and the Just Plain Crazy. The good being some good quality golf holes namely, the opening 5, along with holes 11,12 ,17 an
Royal Melbourne (West)
What to say about the finest golf course in the Southern Hemisphere? Letís start with it being a MacKenzie textbook on strategic golf. Max Behrís line of charm is here in spades. Not surprisingly,
Royal Liverpool
The first time I played at Hoylake I played the best round of my life. But I didn't enjoy it. I have now been fortunate to play it a further four times. My standard of golf has slipped dramatically bu
Fortrose & Rosemarkie
I loved my visit to Fortrose and Rosemarkie. I am an average player but one of my dreams was to play a true links course in Scotland and to paly seaside. This course fit the bill and exceeded my expec
Having discovered this hidden gem several years ago I try to make a point of returning every year to enjoy its varied and challenging layout. There are some weak holes, notably the stretch from 10
Musselburgh/Monktonhall looked a picture on a beautiful summer's evening and the course was in fine condition. After a promising start with two good par 4s and a fun short par 3 the course settles int
Loudoun Gowf
I was a little surprised to see Loudoun Gowf making an appearance in the latest Ayrshire & Arran regional listings on this website so I thought it was time to have a look at the course yesterday. Ther
Like Jim, it has been a decade since my last visit with my only abiding memory being a shot to the elevated 18th green, so it was almost a blank canvas for me. Having recently played at Falkirk Tryst,
St Andrews (Castle)
Iíll admit, David McKlay Kidd has some guts. St. Andrewís is without a doubt one of the greatest golf towns in the world. Steeped in history and with more excellent golf courses around than you could
Barnbougle Dunes
While walking to the first tee, I consulted the course guide Iíd acquired in the clubhouse. On the first page was a brief description of the course, which began by announcing that, ďIn early Scotland
Seaton Carew
Great golf course that would be rated far higher if the views of industrial Middlesborough weren't with you on most holes. The par 3 third and the very strong par 4 10th and 17th were particularly me
What a great course. Played in 20 mph winds which made it a very testing round but that didn't take away from the enjoyment. Everyone so friendly, from the initial contact with the secretary to the ca

Prestwick is Awesome! Any lover of GCA will undoubtedly put this into their list of favorites after the first play. This course is pure classic quirky links arguable at itís best. Think North Berwick

North Berwick (West)
I doubt one could ever say enough about this amazing course. Itís one of my personal favorites and exemplifies nearly everything I am passionate about in this great sport.

Royal Birkdale
Royal Birkdale is indeed a special place and a round here is a wonderful experience. A few of the things I noticed about the course that could be slight criticisms would be that even though I believe
Recently I had the pleasure of playing here for the first time with a group of friends. It was part of an extended trip including a significant number of great links courses. Formby was certainly one
Royal Lytham & St Annes
The second stop on a recent tour of brilliant links courses was in a few words rather holey. Going into a round of golf with the thought that somehow more than 200 bunkers are waiting provides new mea
Royal Liverpool
I was very happy to have the opportunity for a first go at Royal Liverpool in the middle of March. After a soft winter Iíd argue itís a great month for a first visit given the rough is down a bit. Roy
The first thing I noticed about Pennard were the cows! They were on the practice ground and all over the 1st fairway. I donít think Iíve played in a cow pasture before and this gives you the impres
These are exciting times for anyone involved with the Machrie. With a major course renovation well under way and a new hotel in the pipeline the latest owners have certainly committed to a substantial
Modry Las
This course is a step-up from other courses played on a recent trip to Poland. There is an air of quality on the course comparable with something we have come to expect in countries with an establishe
King's Lynn
A template for a great golf club. A beautiful course which has maximised on the natural attributes of the woodland area. Super finishing hole which plays right up to the terrace outside the club house
Binowo Park
Binowo Park is worth a visit if you are in and around Szczecin, opened at the start of the 2000's and definitely fun golf with plenty of strong holes. The style of this course is certainly recognisabl
Amber Baltic (Championship)
Golf in Poland is relatively new, a young history of a little over 20 years so any course reviews must take this into consideration. Amber Baltic has been around since the start back in 1994, so this
Arriving at the Notts Golf Club - or Hollinwell as the locals call it - you feel as though you are in the middle of the English countryside, a million miles from anywhere. The landscape through which
Dalmahoy (East)
It has been 15 years since I played the East course this last June and I was interested to find out whether the harsh reviews posted for the course were actually true. I wasnít a great fan of the East
Played there on a winter special in February. Course in good condition (and rough not too punishing at that time of year), greens in excellent condition. Highlight of the round was the par 3 13th - l
Utterly lovely course: stuck in a time warp of the 1960, but none the worse for that. Friendly and unpompous staff, who gave us a warm welcome. Course in good condition - fairways a bit rough and
Barnbougle Lost Farm

Royal Birkdale
I am lucky enough to have played Royal Birkdale around a dozen times and each time it never fails to impress. The layout is complete mix of holes, both short and long, turning left and right facing in
Erin Hills
Played the course twice in decent weather in June 2015. Visually it was amazing - the rough had an orange glow along the lines of so many photos. One or two holes that felt as if they had been squee
Blackwolf Run (River)
As American as apple pie. Manufactured and lots of water. Not my cup of tea but can't fault the condition of the course, especially the greens as they were near perfect.
Whistling Straits (Straits)
Played the course twice in a week, in good weather. A wonderful experience, fantastic views and so many memorable holes. The condition was good (it should be as the USPGA follows in a couple of mont
