1st Yorkshire - Best in Area 8th England Ranking 25th Britain & Ireland Ranking 77th World Ranking
Anyone expecting a stuffy, old fashioned, stuck up golf club will get a pleasant surprise at Ganton. This is Yorkshire, and whilst there is plenty of tweed on show, the l...

Vilamoura (Victoria) 20/10/2021

9th Algarve - Best in Area 18th Portugal Ranking
I loved reading Jim McCann's review for this course, just a month before I played it, but my view is almost directly opposite. I loved the front 9 at Victoria, it is play...

10th Yorkshire - Best in Area
Having played Ilkley several times over the years it is always nice to head back there and see how my game and the course has progressed. For me, Ilkley has always lived...

I got an invite to play Wortley in a shotgun start competition recently, and was pleased to see this course creep into Yorkshire's Top 40. An old/ancient clubhouse welcom...

Auchterarder 02/08/2021

7th Perth & Kinross - Best in Area
We played here the day after having a knock next door, and the welcome was just as warm as at Gleneagles. The course was very different however, with the space maximised...

Dumfries & Galloway 02/08/2021

9th Dumfries & Galloway - Best in Area
We played this course as part of a trip into Scotland, and an open on the way up appealed immensely. Therefore we had a bargain in the bag, and the course was surprisingl...

Stockport 25/06/2021

6th Cheshire - Best in Area
Great course design befits a parcel of land that lends itself beautifully to a golf course. Mature trees line each fairway, the shorter the hole, the tighter the trees. T...

Seaton Carew (Old) 25/06/2021

1st Durham - Best in Area 72nd England Ranking
If Mad Max built a golf course he would build Seaton Carew. It is really difficult to separate the course from the locale, every shot seemingly against an industrial back...

3rd Durham - Best in Area
There are a couple of lasting memories of Brancepeth Castle from my last visit, 10+ years ago, the undulating topography and the 'Castle holes'. As for the rest of the co...

Windermere 20/05/2021

8th Cumbria - Best in Area
This was my first trip back to Windermere after an incredibly soggy debut there some 10+ years ago. I won’t wait this long again, as it is a terrific track, with many int...

Bradford 17/05/2021

26th Yorkshire - Best in Area
I always feel this course doesn't come alive until the back 7 holes, which are played across a small valley, meaning raised tee shots to the fairway below. Sometimes the...

Dunham Forest 20/04/2021

12th Cheshire - Best in Area
Reading reviews beforehand sometimes prejudices one, so ruefully, this will be an attempt to set aside other reviewers thoughts, and stick with one’s own. This was the fi...

Lanark 27/09/2020

1st Lanarkshire - Best in Area 68th Scotland Ranking
There is so much to take into account when reviewing a course and deciding its rating, and it’s difficult to separate the purely golf based critiques from other influenc...
