I’m a member at Romford Golf Club and my handicap is unfortunately increasing (currently 14). Among my favourite courses are Royal St George’s, Wentworth (West), Vilamoura (Old) and the gem at Purdis Heath.

68th Southern Spain - Best in Area
I am not certain I would rush back to play here but I must admit it did have some spectacular holes. The 3rd has a tee about 100 yards above the fairway and the shot is q...

5th Suffolk - Best in Area
This course is a delight. I was lucky to play it on a calm clear sunny day in October and it is gorgeous. Inland heath with Gorse and heather in abundance, but when the b...

8th Essex - Best in Area
Without doubt one of the better courses in Essex. A welcoming modern club house but a club with traditional values. The course is definitely a course of two distinct halv...

22nd Southern Spain - Best in Area 50th Spain Ranking
A lovely little course, pleasing on the eye and not too tough, but still need to keep the ball in play. It is not the longest course by any means but it is amongst some l...

La Cala (Europa) 18/09/2013

74th Southern Spain - Best in Area
This course is situated in a lovely part of the countryside, a winding river in a deep gorge wends its way through the course. The resort is smart and modern and the brea...

Atalaya (New) 18/09/2013

57th Southern Spain - Best in Area
Have to admit that I was not massively impressed with this track. A bit of work was being done on the clubhouse when we played which I guess did not help to its 'look', b...

Chaparral 25/02/2013

16th Southern Spain - Best in Area 36th Spain Ranking
Great course this one. Reminds me a little of the West Course at La Manga. Lots of tough narrow drives and careful course management required, but equally one that gives...

Los Naranjos 20/09/2012

26th Southern Spain - Best in Area 57th Spain Ranking
Played this course in Sept 12. A pleasant enough 'typically' Spanish course, with about 4 lovely holes, but many of them were a little ordinary in the scheme of things. I...

Santa Clara 20/09/2012

73rd Southern Spain - Best in Area
This is a delightful little course which tests the good golfers but is fair to the average. It's not over bunkered, there is some variety to it. Some of the holes are ver...

This is a pretty course but it just escaped the ravages of the Marbella fires in August 2012, all around the periphery the blackened country side shows testament to that....

I was really impressed with this track. We played this, El Chapperel and Mijas Los Lagos and this was the best of the three. Pretty course, lovely club house, a variety o...

Mijas (Los Lagos) 14/09/2011

20th Southern Spain - Best in Area 45th Spain Ranking
Whilst this is a 'nice' course - I am surprised it is so much higher than Torrequebrada. It is very open - which helps - but it is very long - hitting the greens in regul...

Felixstowe Ferry (Martello) 17/05/2010

6th Suffolk - Best in Area
Played here two weeks ago in a brisk wind and bright sunshine. It is a lovely place to play golf. Rewarding if you keep it in play, the wind tricks it up a lot. The green...

16th Algarve - Best in Area 30th Portugal Ranking
This course is new, but it makes a great break from the testing toughies, like Penina and Vilamoura. It is in a really peaceful out of the way setting, a nice club house...

Vilamoura (Old) 18/09/2008

3rd Algarve - Best in Area 6th Portugal Ranking 39th Continental Europe Ranking
This course is an absolute beauty. The club house is very classy, calm and sedate, as are indeed all the staff. Nobody tearing around, and the place is quiet and not over...
