"Atop a large hill in Mid Wales above the Victorian spa town of Llandrindod Wells lays a topsy-turvy, rough-and-tumble, bags-of-fun golf course. It was originally laid out by six-times Open Champion Harry Vardon then subsequently altered by the prolific course designer James Braid (who only managed to win The Open on five occasions) and gives us a glimpse into how golf was played a century ago."

"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."
"Royal North Devon, or Westward Ho! as it is often fondly referred to, is a very special place. That much is obvious from the moment you drive into the car park and are informed, by an unmissable sign on the side of the historic clubhouse, that you have just arrived at England's oldest course."
"There’s a real feel-good factor about playing golf at Yelverton. It’s great for your soul and can also be a confidence booster for your golf; that is if you catch it on as benign a day as I did."
"The four-star St. Mellion International Resort is not short of accolades. The Nicklaus course has been voted the 'Best Golf Course' in the West of England by Today's Golfer Magazine readers and the complex recently ranked 14th in the Top 100 UK & Ireland Golf Resorts."
"It’s a real shame that Warren Golf Club, located at the seaside town of Dawlish Warren in South Devon, was omitted from the “True Links” book showcasing the 246 true links golf courses of the world."
"If you’ve got an itch sometimes you’ve just got to scratch it… even if it’s in a hard-to-reach place! And in my personal quest to play all the true links golf course in the British Isles that was exactly the case with Castletown."
"There are few better places to enjoy a full day of golfing than at Woodhall Spa. Home to the National Golf Centre and England Golf, the governing body for the amateur game in this country, Woodhall Spa has the luxury of two courses. It is the famed Hotchkin that grabs most of the headlines, and rightly so."
"Tankersley, a former baronial deer park, is not your average run-of-the-mill parkland golf course."
"Bradford Moor is a little dazzler of a nine-hole golf course close to the city. Not without interest there are some decent holes and the turf, if not quite true moorland, is springy, firm and was pleasing to hit from in early February."
