Archerfield (Fidra) 13/05/2008

5th Lothians - Best in Area 31st Scotland Ranking
I am amazed that the courses at Archerfield are not ranked higher in the latest rankings. Maybe it is because the club is very private and therefore not many people have...

Arabella 16/02/2010

3rd Western Cape - Best in Area 10th South Africa Ranking
Gosh, this golf course is good. I've played at most of the Open courses, Pebble Beach, Valderrama but Arabella is definitely in my top 5 courses for sheer fun. It has bee...

Muirfield 15/09/2009

1st Lothians - Best in Area 3rd Scotland Ranking 4th Britain & Ireland Ranking 10th World Ranking

Archerfield (Dirleton) 29/05/2009

7th Lothians - Best in Area 40th Scotland Ranking
At first glance the Dirleton is a tougher test of golf than the Fidra and the opener is definitely more challenging with a high, longish second shot needed to hold a gree...

1st Lothians - Best in Area 3rd Scotland Ranking 4th Britain & Ireland Ranking 10th World Ranking
I played at Muirfield last week for the second time and a nagging doubt was confirmed. It’s a wonderful club, with amazing history, but the course isn’t quite as good as...

Falsterbo 26/01/2008

2nd Sweden Ranking 24th Continental Europe Ranking
One of the best Links golf courses I have ever played - including several on the Open rota. The setting is stunning and coming down the strech on a beautiful spring even...

Sage Valley 17/04/2014

9th South Carolina - Best in Area
Let's get the first thing out of the way. There is something very odd about Sage Valley as a club. The story goes that the owner didn't get into Augusta National so dec...

Palmetto 17/04/2014

5th South Carolina - Best in Area
I played Palmetto during Masters week, it's under 30 minutes from Augusta and well worth leaving the fun of the Masters for half a day to visit. The course is steeped in...

Gullane (No.3) 21/02/2010

21st Lothians - Best in Area
It is a freezing but gloriously sunny February day, golf courses across the Lothians are hanging up their 'closed' signs and golfers are longingly looking over the links....

Fontainebleau 11/05/2012

3rd North East France - Best in Area 3rd France Ranking 6th Continental Europe Ranking
Fontainebleau definitely deserves its high ranking in the French list as it is a really wonderful setup. We visited in a pretty wet spell of weather in early May but the...

1st Algarve - Best in Area 1st Portugal Ranking 9th Continental Europe Ranking
We played Monte Rei as the last round of a golf trip to the Algarve but unfortunately we saw it at far from its best. The course had just been closed for a week and the...

Hmm. Played it in the week of the Open and we were really looking forward to what was billed as a great course. It was a good course but playing very very tough and the...
