1st Lothians - Best in Area 4th Scotland Ranking 6th Britain & Ireland Ranking 14th World Ranking
I can honestly say I have never been more excited for a day of golf than I was for 36 holes at the Honorable Company of Edinburgh Golfers in October 2020. I had read revi...

Dumbarnie Links 07/11/2020

Gem Scotland - Best in Area
Dumbarnie was the 2nd course I played on a three-day trip, which was bookended by Muirfield and North Berwick. It only added to the excellent variety on our itinerary – M...

Hindhead 08/10/2020

11th Surrey - Best in Area 34th England Ranking 80th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Hindhead's routing is unlike any other heathland course I have played. The front nine weaves through the floors of valleys, whilst the back nine sits on top of them. The...

Vilamoura (Victoria) 11/05/2020

9th Algarve - Best in Area 18th Portugal Ranking
The Victoria course isn't one that I'd generally go out of my way to play. It is a resort course which is wide open. However, it is in great condition, the clubhouse is n...

West Hill 11/05/2020

10th Surrey - Best in Area 33rd England Ranking 79th Britain & Ireland Ranking
West Hill is well deserving of its rankings in the Top 35 in England, and Top 100 in the UK. Often thought of as the 'weakest' of the 3Ws, it is still not to be missed. I...

Vilamoura (Pinhal) 11/05/2020

21st Algarve - Best in Area 45th Portugal Ranking
Much like the Old course, Pinhal is nice but nothing special. Theres are some good holes (8, 10, 11, 14 and 15), but for the most part is average and forgetful holes thro...

Woburn (Duchess) 10/05/2020

5th Buckinghamshire - Best in Area 96th England Ranking
I haven't played the Marquess Course, but if I was given 10 rounds on the Duchess and Dukes, I would split them 1 Dukes and 9 Duchess. For me the Duchess is a far better...

Vilamoura (Old) 10/05/2020

4th Algarve - Best in Area 7th Portugal Ranking 45th Continental Europe Ranking
The Old Course is nice, but not as good as I had heard. Being an Algarve course lined with umbrella pines, there is only so much you can do before it gets repetitive. The...

Villa Padierna (Flamingos) 09/05/2020

34th Southern Spain - Best in Area
I haven't stay in the Villa Padierna Hotel, but have been in it numerous times and will say that it is spectacular and if you can afford a night in it, then it's a must.T...

Wentworth (West) 09/05/2020

4th Surrey - Best in Area 13th England Ranking 33rd Britain & Ireland Ranking
Something about the West course doesn't get me excited like Swinley Forest or Sunningdale does. A bit like going to Scotland and not playing links golf, going to Surrey a...

Vale do Lobo (Royal) 09/05/2020

11th Algarve - Best in Area 23rd Portugal Ranking
The Royal course is famous for its 16th hole, which is a lovely golf hole and makes a nice profile picture on Facebook. This hole however has given the resort a huge repu...

Wentworth (Edinburgh) 08/05/2020

21st Surrey - Best in Area
The Edinburgh course is thought to be the favourite of many of Wentworth's members, and it is easy to see why. The course isn't heathland, which you'd expect to find in t...
