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...

West Malling (Spitfire) 18/07/2019

Gem England - 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

24th 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

7th Surrey - Best in Area 27th England Ranking 67th 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

10th Surrey - Best in Area 33rd England Ranking 79th 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...
