19 January 2022

It doesn’t seem like six years since we were in the Algarve to celebrate 50 years of golf in the region, publishing a news item entitled Golf in the Algarve – Sir Henry Cotton’s Legacy.

We revisited Costa Navarino last month to discover the full extent of exactly what’s been going on since we were last there.

31 May 2021

It’s just over two years since we published our last New Zealand rankings, so it’s high time for a reappraisal. Thanks largely to strict Kiwi government covid measures, which made foreign travel virtually impossible last year, golf within the country is in rude health...

Review of the Month April 2021 – Lawsonia (Links)

12 May 2021

Lawsonia is my favorite public course in America. And by public I mean accessible; $500 to play Whistling, Kiawah or Pebble is as high a barrier to entry you can have without closing to guests.
