Southerness Golf Club - October 2016

Southerness Golf Club

"Except for the undeniable beauty of the 12th hole there’s nothing truly outstanding at Southerness. Please note that this isn’t meant with negative connotations though because everything about this true links course is of a consistently high standard."

Notts (Hollinwell) Golf Club - October 2016

Notts Golf Club

"I've been raving about the golf course at Hollinwell to anybody who would listen for the last 20 years since I first played it. Back then Notts appeared little known outside the Midlands save for those who were in the know. That day I played for the first time I knew I had stumbled upon something extra special."

Trump International Golf Links - September 2016

Trump International Golf Links

"The first thing to state is that Trump International Golf Links is undoubtedly an exceptionally good golf course. The second thing to say from the off is that it’s categorically not the “World's Greatest Golf Course” as the owner makes out and their website brashly proclaims."

Arbroath Golf Club - September 2016

Arbroath Golf Club

"There’s a deceptive quality to the humble yet alluring links course at Arbroath which would not only make an excellent companion when playing at Carnoustie, or en route to Aberdeen from the South, but is well worthy of a play in its own right."

Rotherham Golf Club - August 2016

Rotherham Golf Club

"Rotherham is a really enjoyable parkland golf course located in the heart of South Yorkshire. The layout of the holes is very interesting and the changes in elevation, on this established tree-lined property, are negotiated nicely."

Prestwick Golf Club - July 2016

Prestwick Golf Club

"Prestwick has been on my hit list of golf courses to play for quite some time and I’m ashamed to say it has taken me far too long to visit this iconic links. From everything I’d read and heard I was expecting it to be ‘my type’ of golf."

Western Gailes Golf Club - July 2016

Western Gailes Golf Club

"Western Gailes is a thing of true beauty. Something extra special. Near perfection at times. It’s a classy links course that only a fusion of nature and time is able to create and where man merely offers a guiding hand. This is close to being as good as it gets at times."

Wilmslow Golf Club - July 2016

Wilmslow Golf Club

Thorpeness Golf Club - May 2016

Thorpeness Golf Club

"In my experience the vast majority of coastal golf courses that are situated close to the sea, but are not on linksland, usually fail to deliver and I ultimately come away disappoint. Thorpeness, however, is a clear exception to the rule."

Church Stretton Golf Club - April 2016

Church Stretton Golf Club

"Church Stretton Golf Club sits atop the stunning Shropshire Hills above the historic market town of the same name. Please believe me when I say the panoramic views from the summit of the course are as good as you’ll find anywhere in England."

St. Andrews Links - October 2015

St. Andrews Links (Old) Golf Club

"There’s very little that hasn’t been written about the golfing mecca that is St. Andrews. Golfers (and indeed non-golfers) flock to this corner of Fife from all over the World to savour the delights of the ‘Grey Auld Toun’ and for most it is mainly to play, or at least see and walk, The Old Course; the spiritual home of golf and where it all began for our beloved game."

Tain Golf Club - September 2015

Painswick Golf Club - April 2015

Painswick Golf Club

"On a recent drive from West Yorkshire to South Wales we decided to jump off the M5 and play a quick round at the highly unusual Painswick Golf Club. It proved to be one of the best decisions we’ve made."

Rhyl Golf Club - October 2014

Rhyl Golf Club

"Rhyl is a cracking little nine-hole links course on the North Wales coast. It’s not going to win any awards for being one of the best in the country but I really enjoyed my outing here in October 2014."

Ganton Golf Club - October 2014

Ganton Golf Club

"Ganton, located in the Vale of Pickering between York and Scarborough, is rightly regarded as one of the UK’s very best inland golf courses with an extremely rich history and a strong sense of tradition."

Shiskine Golf Club - August 2014

Shiskine Golf Club

"Shiskine Golf (& Tennis) Club, set in a truly stunning location at Blackwaterfoot on the Isle of Arran, may only have 12 holes but there is nothing lacking in terms of the enjoyment or test of golf that is presented when playing this wonderfully captivating links."

Traigh Golf Club - August 2014

Traigh Golf Club

"A round of golf at Traigh is a unique Scottish golf experience. I’m not going to claim it is one of the best courses in the country but it’s certainly got an argument to say it has the most breathtaking setting and undoubtedly has one of the best holes I’ve ever played."

Askernish Golf Club - August 2014

Askernish Golf Club

"We’d already driven for over six hours and covered more than 350 miles before boarding a ferry in Oban sailing to Lochboisdale. The Lord of the Isles took a further five and a half hours before it eventually docked a little after seven that evening. We were tired and hungry, in need of food and sleep."

Muirfield Golf Club - August 2014

Muirfield Golf Club

Hayling Golf Club - July 2014

Hayling Golf Club

"Hayling is an extremely fast running golf course played over pure linksland. It begins at a nice steady pace then gathers momentum towards and around the turn before it gradually but emphatically builds to a crescendo at the 12th; one of the finest holes you will ever play."

Huntercombe Golf Club - June 2014

Huntercombe Golf Club

"After playing 36 holes in an open competition at Frilford Heath I decided to quickly dash across the Oxfordshire countryside to Huntercombe for an evening round rather than sit in what mostly likely would have been rush hour traffic on the M40."

Borth & Ynyslas Golf Club - May 2014

Borth & Ynyslas Golf Club

"Borth & Ynyslas is a classic ‘out and back’ true links course. It may not be in the same class as its near neighbour, Aberdovey, located on just the other side of the Dovey Estuary but lovers of links golf will find enough here to warrant a visit."

Royal St. George's Golf Club - May 2014

Royal St. George's Golf Club

"In my mind Royal St. George’s at Sandwich is a championship links golf course with few, if any, superiors. A recent trip to compete (I use that term very loosely) in the South-East of England Links Championship presented an opportunity for me to complete the playing of every Open Championship course in England."

North Berwick Golf Club - March 2014

North Berwick Golf Club

"If Muirfield is regarded as the King of East Lothian then North Berwick is undoubtedly Queen. Sometimes words cannot accurately describe a course and do it total justice, you just have to go and experience it for yourself in order to get a proper flavour of the place. The West Links at North Berwick is one of those."

Winterfield Golf Club - March 2014

Winterfield Golf Club

"There are a handful of holes at Winterfield which just about make it worth a visit. Located close to Dunbar it’s an easy course to access from the A1 for those travelling from England to Scotland or vice-versa. "

Kilspindie Golf Club - March 2014

Kilspindie Golf Club

"The 18 holes at Kilspindie are such an enjoyable place to play links golf. You won’t find championship standard golf here but that’s not to say the course doesn’t present plenty of challenges, it does, and you will have much fun rising and perhaps falling to them."

Leasowe Golf Club - February 2014

Leasowe Golf Club

"Leasowe is one of three true links golf courses located on the Wirral Peninsula. It is situated between the mighty Royal Liverpool and the brilliant Wallasey. And whilst it doesn't come close to matching either of these for quality it does offer excellent value for money and a few engaging holes."

Pennard Golf Club - September 2013

Pennard Golf Club

"Pennard is one of those fantastic links golf courses that has a little bit of everything. Its remote and rugged location on the Gower Peninsula mixes strategy and quirkiness to good effect and boasts a handful of truly excellent holes. The high cliff-top setting also provides some of the best views you're likely to see from a golf course."

Tandridge Golf Club - August 2013

Tandridge Golf Club

"I recently tagged Tandridge onto a visit of some of the very top heathland golf courses in Surrey. And whilst this course couldn't quite match them on a consistent basis throughout the entire 18 holes it was more than worth the trip to go and play. In fact there were a couple of holes that will linger long in the memory!"

Catterick Golf Club - June 2013

Catterick Golf Club

"Catterick is an undulating meadowland course in North Yorkshire near the famous Army garrison. There are several changes in elevation during the round with a few of the holes sitting nicely into the landscape."

Willow Valley Golf Club - June 2013

Willow Valley Golf Club

"Willow Valley is a real brute of a golf course. It can beat you up. A modern-style design with large greens, gigantic bunkers, water hazards in abundance, tree-lined fairways and thick rough make for a challenging golf course. It is also very long and despite having several tee boxes this is essentially a golf course for the competent player."

Disley Golf Club - June 2013

Disley Golf Club

"Disley is an attractive golf course set in beautiful Cheshire countryside. It is not a long course at just a couple of paces over 6,000 yards but the par is 70 and the fairways are tight and tree-lined."

Normanton Golf Club - May 2013

Normanton Golf Club

"Normanton is a pleasant parkland course close to Wakefield in West Yorkshire. It is quickly maturing into a satisfactory venue and one which I expect will continue to improve over the coming years. There are a few really nice holes and the contouring on some of the greens is very good too."

Hesketh Golf Club - May 2013

Hesketh Golf Club

"A round at Hesketh is very much a game of two halves. Well almost. Whilst there is no doubting this is a true links golf course seven of the holes are certainly more 'linksy' than the others."

Hornsea Golf Club - May 2013

Hornsea Golf Club

"Hornsea Golf Club provides an enjoyable round of golf. Located just a mile from the sea on the East Coast of Yorkshire it's a fast running course, albeit a parkland layout, with a wide variety of holes. The greens are usually in exceptional condition and putt similar to a links course."
