Gullane (No.2) 10/10/2019

8th Lothians - Best in Area 44th Scotland Ranking
I played Gullane 3 then 2 in a great 36 hole deal. Gullane 2 is still relatively short but I found it a stern test, there’s a lot of clever bunkering and many a hanging l...

Gullane (No.3) 10/10/2019

21st Lothians - Best in Area
Gullane is wild and windy so the short #3 course offers a manageable test when the gusts are at their worst. It has some bland holes, some real fun and memorable ones, an...

Glen 10/10/2019

17th Lothians - Best in Area
Glen is a fun golf course and has fantastic views. I’m not sure it’s pure links though, sat on top of cliffs and being a little muddy it felt as much downland as links.I...

Moortown 10/10/2019

3rd Yorkshire - Best in Area 47th England Ranking
Moortown is a nice facility but overall I found it a slight letdown. As my first Mackenzie design and a bouncy heathland, I had high hopes but it fell short of similar co...

Knole Park 03/09/2019

5th Kent - Best in Area 90th England Ranking
Knole Park is a beautiful public area and I’d long wanted to play there. As a visitor I’ve always gazed longingly over the golf club’s rustic, rather wild charms which lo...

Cariari 03/09/2019

5th Costa Rica Ranking
There are only a few courses in Costa Rica so by default this is one of the best around. It’s 15 minutes’ drive from the airport with plenty of hotels nearby so if you ha...

West Malling (Spitfire) 18/07/2019

30th Kent - Best in Area
West Malling has two short 18s when I think one long course would have been better. The 'Spitfire' is 5200 yards from the yellow tees and has far more bad holes than good...

Nizels 15/07/2019

20th Kent - Best in Area
I'm unsure how exactly to rate Nizels so hopefully rambling here will point me in the right direction. It's quite a short course, no par 4s are over 400 yards from the ye...

Woking 11/07/2019

8th Surrey - Best in Area 27th England Ranking 68th Britain & Ireland Ranking
It’s majestic. What a pure, grand, true feeling Woking has. Its greens are the best I’ve played on. The course offers something for everyone. The fairways are wide so hac...

West Hill 11/07/2019

12th Surrey - Best in Area 34th England Ranking 81st Britain & Ireland Ranking
West Hill has a lovely rustic feeling to it, it’s well manicured but has a grand, natural vibe to it. On the first hole you’re straight out into the heather then both sid...

Westerham 11/07/2019

27th Kent - Best in Area
Westerham feels like it’s on the very upper end of cheap and cheerful. The greens are well manicured, the facilities are good, the clubhouse has excellent views and there...

The Addington 24/06/2019

13th Surrey - Best in Area 35th England Ranking 83rd Britain & Ireland Ranking
The Addington gets varied reviews these days and I can why. It has a big reputation and it’s relatively expensive, so it’s normal to visit with high hopes.There was a mix...

Piltdown 23/04/2019

6th Sussex - Best in Area
Before playing I was wary of Piltdown. With no bunkers surely they make up for it in other ways? A modern clubhouse and range greet you, because the greens had recently b...

Crowborough Beacon 23/04/2019

4th Sussex - Best in Area 76th England Ranking
I had high hopes for Crowborough and I wasn’t disappointed. The car park and clubhouse sit atop a large hill with miles of the surrounding countryside in view. Only the 1...

London Club (International) 08/04/2019

10th Kent - Best in Area
It’s an impressive clubhouse at the London GC. Green fees are a little high at times but this includes free balls on their grass range. It’s worth going early to make the...

Hever Castle (Kings & Queens) 28/03/2019

13th Kent - Best in Area
I’d like to give this 4.5 – it’s a fun, dramatic and deceptively long course that is (presumably) always in good condition. My highlight was the par 4 13th which felt mor...
