Royal Ashdown Forest (West) 26/07/2021

10th Sussex - Best in Area
I really like shorter courses where play is faster and the average player has more par and birdie opportunities. At 5100 yards from the yellows Ashdown West would fit tha...

Kilspindie 30/06/2021

10th Lothians - Best in Area 59th Scotland Ranking
I have a soft-spot for shorter, more fun courses – pace of play is better, they’re more suitable for novices and seniors, and for us in between we can make more pars and...

Elie 29/06/2021

7th Fife - Best in Area 35th Scotland Ranking
Elie is one of the hillier links you’ll find, and that helps to keep a course with 16 par 4s incredibly diverse. The only similarities I found between a couple of holes w...

St Andrews (Eden) 28/06/2021

16th Fife - Best in Area 79th Scotland Ranking
The front nine of the Eden is one of the best nines in St Andrews. It is gently sloping links-land that plays firmer than its well-manicured sibling next door, with some...

Musselburgh (Old) 28/06/2021

Gem Scotland - Best in Area
Well worth a try if passing through or if staying in East Lothian. It is council run but the greens were in excellent condition and the slightly lower maintenance meant t...

Seacroft 02/06/2021

2nd Lincolnshire - Best in Area 74th England Ranking
This is a seaside course but doesn’t play as a links. There is a sign on the 11th that explains the property has a rare “wet grass” which means it plays more like a parkl...

Royal Liverpool 28/05/2021

1st Cheshire - Best in Area 16th England Ranking 42nd Britain & Ireland Ranking
There are certain golf clubs that resonate with you. Often it’s an intangible, the grounds have an aura or feeling that leave you content and fulfilled even if the weathe...

Formby 27/05/2021

3rd Lancashire - Best in Area 19th England Ranking 46th Britain & Ireland Ranking
There are a few links-heath hybrid courses but I think Formby owns its own unique piece of real estate in that group. At first glance it’s flat and heathery like Walton H...

Formby Ladies 27/05/2021

12th Lancashire - Best in Area
At first glance this is a short golf course. However, after a few handshake holes it plays at pretty much full length, especially in the Formby breeze. I had pictured thi...

West Lancashire 24/05/2021

6th Lancashire - Best in Area 41st England Ranking 94th Britain & Ireland Ranking
West Lancs didn’t quite hit the spot for me like other courses in the area did. It is an impressive layout, with its two loops of nine meaning the wind comes from all dir...

Toot Hill 06/05/2021

10th Essex - Best in Area
Toot looks like a typical 90s build but has lots of better things going for it. The greens are what most impressed me, they don’t just flow with the lie of the lie of the...

Saunton (West) 29/10/2020

3rd Devon - Best in Area 61st England Ranking
Saunton West may be the little sibling of the two layouts, but it’s almost as tough and plays closer to the area’s tallest dunes. A few greens are tucked into these hills...

Saunton (East) 28/10/2020

1st Devon - Best in Area 21st England Ranking 48th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Saunton is set on an amazing piece of land. It doesn’t feel quite as sandy as some other links, but the dunes, rumpled fairways and scenery make up for it. As a layout, S...

Royal North Devon 27/10/2020

2nd Devon - Best in Area 60th England Ranking
Playing with a large group, Royal North Devon split opinion exactly as you’d expect. Much of it as flat as a pancake, some holes seem as wide as they are long, and thanks...
