I have played over 800 different golf courses, of which nearly 670 of them are on this website. I don't chase "lists" but I look at them to see whether a course worth playing is nearby on my travels. I have my own rating system and have ranked every course I have played. My golf bucket list is to play in every state in the USA (44 so far) and at least 20 countries. I lived in England from 1993-1998 and am a member of a club in Scotland so I continue to go every year to the U.K or Ireland. There are about 600 more golf courses I would love to play. So much golf.....so little time.

Joy is the word that springs to mind when playing The Misquamicut Club. The first ten holes are a rolling adventure and you play three of the best par 3's you will ever...

Sahalee (South & North) 26/07/2021

8th Washington - Best in Area
I have a bias towards links and links-like courses. I also prefer a course that offers views across the fairways to other holes. I had read the reviews of others on thi...

The Nicklaus course is played essentially on a flat course with very difficult green complexes making it a course for better players. The Fazio course at Carlton Woods i...

Links of North Dakota 10/06/2021

2nd North Dakota - Best in Area

The Lakes 16/10/2019

3rd New South Wales - Best in Area 17th Australia Ranking 26th Oceania Ranking
The Lakes has hosted many professional events and I can see why. It offers plenty of length and difficulty for the pro player due to the water, which is primarily on the...

4th Tasmania - Best in Area 18th Australia Ranking 29th Oceania Ranking
I played Ocean Dunes in February, 2019. I fear this gem of a course will close. The conditioning is poor. Already many of the fairways are not watered and several tee...
