Occupying a three-mile stretch of North Sea coastline, Trump International Golf Links is the latest American-inspired, high profile course to open in Scotland since the start of the new millennium.
Opened in 2009, the course at Vallda Golf and Country Club was fashioned by Hawtree Design in a classic British style, inspired by London’s heathland. With fescue seeded playing surfaces, Hawtree has created the feel good factor.
Half the holes on the Vilamoura Millennium course once belonged to the former 27-hole Laguna course and the other nine were added to create a new 18-hole layout.
Vilamoura Old is the original and eldest course at Vilamoura but it's also the best. Grand, pine-lined, strategic and in tune with Mother Nature.
Designed by Simon Gidman in 1990 when the architect was with Hawtree Ltd, the Wrag Barn golf course is set in more than 200 acres that once formed part of Lord Banbury's Estate.
The golf course at Wychwood Park opened for play in 2002 and it measures a huge 7,191 yards from the tips. Expect a serious challenge.
Host to the Seve Trophy in 2005, the fairways of the challenging Wellington course at the Wynyard Golf Club are laid out within a 200-acre wooded property where tees and greens have been built to USGA specification.
