Wallasey 21/07/2014

3rd Cheshire - Best in Area 60th England Ranking
Hmm. Played it in the week of the Open and we were really looking forward to what was billed as a great course. It was a good course but playing very very tough and the...

2nd Algarve - Best in Area 3rd Portugal Ranking 32nd Continental Europe Ranking
We played the Old Course at Vilamoura on the first day of a recent golf trip and enjoyed it thoroughly. The greeting we got was a warm one - friendly staff an efficient...

San Lorenzo 22/05/2014

3rd Algarve - Best in Area 5th Portugal Ranking 43rd Continental Europe Ranking
This is definitely a very good course to play which is well worth playing if in the area.The course has a great variety of holes on it. The front nine leads to a fantast...

Sage Valley 17/04/2014

4th South Carolina - Best in Area
Let's get the first thing out of the way. There is something very odd about Sage Valley as a club. The story goes that the owner didn't get into Augusta National so dec...

Palmetto 17/04/2014

11th South Carolina - Best in Area
I played Palmetto during Masters week, it's under 30 minutes from Augusta and well worth leaving the fun of the Masters for half a day to visit. The course is steeped in...

Glasgow (Gailes Links) 21/06/2013

7th Ayrshire & Arran - Best in Area 37th Scotland Ranking
Had the pleasure of playing Glasgow Gailes recently. The wind was quite something, at least 4 clubs into us for most of the front nine and verging on the unplayable. The...

Chart Hills 21/06/2013

7th Kent - Best in Area
We played Chart Hills after the secretary at Princes wrote to us telling us our months booked tee time could no longer be honoured as they had made a mistake. No such dis...

Muirfield 30/06/2012

1st Lothians - Best in Area 3rd Scotland Ranking 4th Britain & Ireland Ranking 9th World Ranking
I played at Muirfield last week for the second time and a nagging doubt was confirmed. It’s a wonderful club, with amazing history, but the course isn’t quite as good as...

Fontainebleau 11/05/2012

3rd North East France - Best in Area 4th France Ranking 6th Continental Europe Ranking
Fontainebleau definitely deserves its high ranking in the French list as it is a really wonderful setup. We visited in a pretty wet spell of weather in early May but the...

Puntiro 31/05/2010

7th Balearic Islands - Best in Area 94th Spain Ranking
Hmm. I can only assume that some of the lustre has left this course in the last year or so because I think it is very hard to give this more than a three ball rating. The...

Son Vida 25/05/2010

4th Balearic Islands - Best in Area 74th Spain Ranking
The first tee at Son Vida gives you a taste of what is to come. Short dogleg, not too much bother and a slight annoyance that you won’t be hitting more than a 4 iron on...

Son Muntaner 25/05/2010

3rd Balearic Islands - Best in Area 65th Spain Ranking
We played Son Muntaner after a round at the sister course Son Vida and this was a different class of course. The course was in fantastic condition, a range of tee boxes m...

Son Gual 25/05/2010

1st Balearic Islands - Best in Area 9th Spain Ranking 51st Continental Europe Ranking
We played Son Gual following rounds at Puntiro, Son Vida and Son Muntaner and this was head and shoulders above the others and a real quality course. That no money has be...

Gullane (No.3) 21/02/2010

21st Lothians - Best in Area
It is a freezing but gloriously sunny February day, golf courses across the Lothians are hanging up their 'closed' signs and golfers are longingly looking over the links....

Arabella 16/02/2010

3rd Western Cape - Best in Area 8th South Africa Ranking
Gosh, this golf course is good. I've played at most of the Open courses, Pebble Beach, Valderrama but Arabella is definitely in my top 5 courses for sheer fun. It has bee...

Muirfield 15/09/2009

1st Lothians - Best in Area 3rd Scotland Ranking 4th Britain & Ireland Ranking 9th World Ranking
Our first greetings at Muirfield made me worry a little for what was ahead. A rather officious gentleman asked who the party leader was and I was marched off to register...
