Seaford Golf Club - October 2018

Seaford Golf Club

"Located high on the Sussex Downs above the seaside town of the same name Seaford is a fine downland golf course with superb views. The Club, not to be confused with nearby Seaford Head Golf Club, moved to its present site at Blatchington in 1907 two decades after its formation. "

Blairgowrie Golf Club - September 2018

Blairgowrie Golf Club

"It’s generally a case of slim pickings when it comes to high quality golf away from the sea in Scotland, however, at Blairgowrie the old adage about buses rings true because two come along at once. The Rosemount and Lansdowne play over the same fantastic heathland terrain and bring a touch of the Surrey sandbelt to the Perthshire countryside."

Royal Burgess Golfing Society - September 2018

Royal Burgess Golfing Society

"In the not too distance future The Royal Burgess Golfing Society at Barnton on the outskirts of Edinburgh will celebrate its tercentenary. Just let that sink in for a moment. In 2035 this historically consequential golf club will become the first in the world to turn 300-years old! "

Ganton Golf Club - August 2018

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. Along with Royal Birkdale and Muirfield these are the only clubs to have staged the Ryder Cup, Walker Cup and Curtis Cup."

Sherwood Forest Golf Club - July 2018

Sherwood Forest Golf Club

"Sherwood Forest is a superb heathland golf course that is played over an amazing isolated property which reveals its full beauty through holes seven to 14, both visually and playing wise. The other holes aren’t bad either though and many a first time visitor will be surprised at just how good the quality of golf on offer is at this Nottinghamshire great."

Portstewart Golf Club (Strand, Riverside & Old) - June 2018

Portstewart Golf Club

"The championship Strand course at Portstewart in County Londonderry is one of the finest links in all of Ireland. Portstewart sometimes gets a bad rap for having just nine good holes (the front nine) along with an inferior back-nine. Now, this is true to a certain extent but I’d like to clarify and put it into context by saying that the front nine is rivetingly magnificent and the inward half still exceptionally good."

Royal Portrush Golf Club (Dunluce & Valley) - June 2018

Royal Portrush Golf Club

"I don’t think I would ever accept the notion that a golf course is perfect – not even The Old Course at St. Andrews – but boy does Royal Portrush come close. Tantalisingly close. To say I was completely and utterly blown away by the sheer quality and golfing aura that surrounds what will be the 2019 Open Championship venue is a gross understatement."

Bushfoot Golf Club - June 2018

Bushfoot Golf Club

"Little known Bushfoot golf course at Portballintrae near Bushmills in County Antrim, Northern Ireland is an interesting 9-hole layout in a picturesque location. Most of the course is played over pure linksland with humpy, bumpy terrain where you are never quite certain where your ball will finish."

Castlerock Golf Club (Mussenden & Bann) - June 2018

Castlerock Golf Club

"Castlerock…. simply rocks! I’ll admit straightaway that the Mussenden Links at Castlerock in County Londonderry is right up my street. It’s an authentic, genuine, rugged links course that does everything you would expect of it and at times much more. It’s rough around the edges but that’s the way I like it and this natural layout certainly delivers."

Royal County Down Golf Club (Championship & Annesley) - June 2018

Royal County Down Golf Club

"The canvas at County Down is perfect for golf and it paints the most captivating of pictures. Visually it packs a big punch and the terrain is just wonderful for the best of golf. Dune-lined valleys, up-and-overs, soaring sandhills, undulating fairways, firm turf, dell greens, flags atop of plateaus, secret gorse lined walks from green-to-tee and a backdrop as stunning as they come. "

Scarborough South Cliff Golf Club - June 2018

Scarborough South Cliff Golf Club

"Scarborough South Cliff is one of several clifftop courses along the East Coast of Yorkshire. Sadly, I have not seen any of the other courses at Filey, Bridlington (two), Whitby, Flamborough Head and another towards the North end of Scarborough. I’m therefore not in a position to compare and contrast but “South Cliff” must surely hold its own amongst its neighbours."

Castle Stuart Golf Club - May 2018

Castle Stuart Golf Club

"You don’t need to think strategically to play Castle Stuart but to play Castle Stuart you need to think strategically. The above summarises this modern links perfectly and in my opinion is a sign of greatness. Castle Stuart is great. It’s a thinking man’s course for sure but the more naive golfer will still get maximum enjoyment from this wholly manufactured course."

Golspie Golf Club - May 2018

Golspie Golf Club

"Walking off the 1st tee at Golspie towards a featureless, flat fairway it might not be immediately apparent about all the golfing goodness that lies in store and just how terrific it is…. but by the time you have reached the turn you are acutely aware of the spectacular nature of this fascinating and varied links."

Skibo Castle (Carnegie Links) Golf Club - May 2018

Skibo Castle (Carnegie Links) Golf Club

"If you’ve not played the Carnegie Links at Skibo Castle since around 2008 you’ve not really played “Skibo”. The current version of the layout was designed by Tom Mackenzie under the watchful eye and guidance of PGA Professional and Director of Golf at Skibo, David Thomson, around a decade ago."

Wick Golf Club - May 2018

Wick Golf Club

"Founded in 1870 Wick Golf Club is fast approaching its 150th birthday and is embracing its golden years by bringing new energy to the links. Upon arrival at the coastal course Club Captain, Catherine McLeod, energetically tells us all about a plethora of planned changes to the course in what promises to be exciting times ahead."

Reay Golf Club - May 2018

Reay Golf Club

"A minibus of American golfers is not the first thing I expected to see on arrival at Reay Golf Club; the most northerly 18 hole links on mainland Scotland! To our surprise there were around a dozen Yanks milling around the clubhouse, some on the putting green, others just paying their green-fee."

Durness Golf Club - May 2018

Durness Golf Club

"They say that life’s all about the journey and not the destination but playing golf at Durness is without doubt both a journey and a destination. From whichever angle you approach this incomparable links in the remote North-West corner of Scotland, near Cape Wrath, your eyes will feast upon some of the finest scenery Scotland has to offer."

Burnham & Berrow Golf Club (Championship & Channel) - May 2018

Burnham & Berrow Golf Club

"The links at Burnham & Berrow begins at a pulsating pace and rarely lets up until the moment you reach the comfort of the historic 100-year-old clubhouse where you are able to relax and reflect. This is true championship golf of the highest order with the opening three holes epitomising everything that is great and superior about links golf."

Gleneagles Golf Club (King's & Queen's) - April 2018

Gleneagles Golf Club

"I returned to the King’s course at Gleneagles in April 2018 just a little over a decade after I first fell in love with it. The reason for this more recent visit was to play in their popular Spring Open. A card and pencil competition off the white tees in the early season was deemed a good idea… at least during the winter planning months!"

The Machrie Golf Club - April 2018

The Machrie Golf Club

"It was an impulsive, crazy… and some would say utterly ridiculous… decision that took me to The Machrie in the Spring of 2018. Having entered an open competition at Gleneagles, near Perth, on Saturday 13th April a friend and I had debated at great length about where to stop off ‘on route’ from West Yorkshire for a game of golf on the Friday. "

Saunton Golf Club (East & West) - April 2018

Saunton Golf Club

"If anyone dare claim there is a better 36 holes of links golf at one golf club in England than at Saunton I'm pretty sure I could make an unquestionable case for this wonderful piece of linksland. One of the things that confirms this for me is, not only the quality of every single hole, but the subtle yet significant differences between the two courses."
