Estoril 02/09/2022

17th Lisbon & Centre - Best in Area 46th Portugal Ranking
It is very short. There is a large and noisy highway through the middle of the course, disrupting the flow so much that a cart driver has to be employed to shuttle those...

34th Surrey - Best in Area
It has a very busy and rather noisy A-road going through it. Crossing that is cardio in more ways than, and you are obliged to do it twice. It is not pretty by any stretc...

Hillside 18/07/2022

3rd Lancashire - Best in Area 22nd England Ranking 51st Britain & Ireland Ranking

1st Mayo - Best in Area 14th Ireland Ranking 66th Britain & Ireland Ranking

Prestatyn 19/03/2022

13th North Wales - Best in Area 35th Wales Ranking
Criminally underrated. Perhaps because the clubhouse is, frankly, a bit tatty (though staff couldn't have been more helpful), it's quite a long way from anywhere, and it...

Addington Palace 18/03/2022

36th Surrey - Best in Area
A hidden gem, given it's lowly place in the Surrey rankings. Greens and greens surrounds immaculate, as well-conditioned as you could hope for at this time of year. Some...

West Cliffs 09/03/2022

1st Lisbon & Centre - Best in Area 2nd Portugal Ranking 15th Continental Europe Ranking
I was fortunate enough to play here this week. First the good: jaw-droppingly beautiful at every turn, and definitely designed to require real thought on every shot. 5 or...
