Panmure 04/08/2020

2nd Angus & Dundee - Best in Area 37th Scotland Ranking
A classy golf course but one of two halves – the holes nearer the clubhouse, and the half on the wild links-land. It’s also a real tough layout when the wind is against,...

Carnoustie (Burnside) 03/08/2020

8th Angus & Dundee - Best in Area
Burnside’s short yardage doesn’t make it easy. In some way’s it’s tougher that its big sibling next door – tighter fairways, smaller greens, more gorse and heather. The f...

Sweetwoods Park 14/07/2020

18th Sussex - Best in Area
Sweetwoods is a mixed bag. It has some fun reachable holes but some longer ones which make little sense. Excellent greens but some ropey conditioning elsewhere. Some dram...

Worplesdon 25/03/2020

9th Surrey - Best in Area 31st England Ranking 75th Britain & Ireland Ranking
You arrive at Worplesdon and look down over the first four holes. Immediately it looks like an incredible place for golf. That is the more boring part of the property!Rat...

Camberley Heath 25/03/2020

18th Surrey - Best in Area 80th England Ranking
Camberley Heath is set on a dynamic piece of land with steep hills that must match any other heathland. There aren’t many flat lies. The sliding dogleg of the 1st is an i...

Royal Blackheath 09/12/2019

15th Kent - Best in Area
Royal Blackheath starts off fairly well. Teeing off by the clubhouse is nice, it’s surprisingly open, the greens ran very well for the time of year, some diagonal bunkers...

Reigate Heath 19/11/2019

27th Surrey - Best in Area
Reigate Heath’s set in a surprisingly hilly piece of land as the drive in is flat. It certainly has a ‘wow’ factor plus the clubhouse and windmill suitably crown the land...

Southerndown 29/10/2019

3rd South Wales - Best in Area 6th Wales Ranking
Southerndown is deemed as downland but I prefer someone below’s description of “a links in the sky”. The first few holes would be a hard walk on a hot day but it levels o...

Pyle and Kenfig 29/10/2019

5th South Wales - Best in Area 10th Wales Ranking
I agree with most of what’s already been written here. Six holes are top-notch then the rest vary between good and boring. Near the road the turf doesn’t feel like a link...

Gullane (No.2) 10/10/2019

7th Lothians - Best in Area 42nd 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

20th 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

15th Lothians - Best in Area 83rd Scotland Ranking
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 53rd 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 89th 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...
