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.

Vilamoura (Millennium) 18/09/2008

27th Algarve - Best in Area
This course - it has to be said - was a bit of a disappointment. With the name 'Vilamoura' on its boards you'd expect it to be of some sort of quality but it wasn't. I wo...

Brocket Hall (Melbourne) 21/08/2008

13th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
This is an enormously impressive golf club. It's not cheap, but the reasons are clear from the minute you drive through the gates and into a car park overflowing with im...

Bovey Castle 21/08/2008

5th Devon - Best in Area
Bovey is one of the prettiest courses with an interesting front nine with the river in play for a good number of holes. The back nine isn’t as good but the 10th is a fant...

Penina (Championship) 26/09/2007

15th Algarve - Best in Area 28th Portugal Ranking
Played this the wrong way round which makes a little bit of difference with the par 5's all coming early. Beautiful club house gives the place a lot of character. The cou...

Felixstowe Ferry (Martello) 13/10/2005

6th Suffolk - Best in Area
A lovely little course this and I have been lucky enough to play it twice in calm conditions, I reckon when the wind blows it really shows its teeth. The back nine is the...

1st Bedfordshire - Best in Area
This is a lovely golf club, especially the Main course. It took me three rounds to finally nail this place with a score to match my handicap. The 4th and 5th holes are re...

Ipswich (Purdis Heath) 10/09/2004

2nd Suffolk - Best in Area 50th England Ranking
This course really is a hidden gem, and really not a long drive from the suburbs of London and Essex. Half heathland, half woodland, the course blends into its surroundin...

East Sussex National (East) 15/04/2004

9th Sussex - Best in Area
Beautiful grand and modern clubhouse with great facilities, even a little man to take your clubs from you and clean them. Course is long and in great condition, a good te...

Belfry (Brabazon) 15/04/2004

1st Warwickshire - Best in Area 68th England Ranking
Facilites here are second to none, and the added bonus of treading the turf of the Ryder Cup teams makes this a real treat, but the course is much tougher than it looks,...

Hanbury Manor 15/04/2004

7th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
A surprisingly straightforward yet nonetheless charming course in a lovely setting. A track that will suit all handicap levels, yet be challenging enough for the low hand...

Woburn (Duchess) 15/04/2004

4th Buckinghamshire - Best in Area 79th England Ranking
Shorter than the Dukes, but still retains the beautiful pine wood surroundings that really are such a great feature of a visit here. Some gorgeous holes and I'm surprised...

Collingtree Park 15/04/2004

5th Northamptonshire - Best in Area
A great central venue for societies with a far flung membership. The 18th is worth the trip alone with an island green on a tough par 5 - not quite like a long version of...

Moor Park (High) 15/04/2004

5th Hertfordshire - Best in Area 98th England Ranking
The decor of the clubhouse is something else and very unique. The course is pretty and fair, with a variety of holes. Some par 5's that are reachable in 2 and a couple of...

Woburn (Duke's) 13/04/2004

2nd Buckinghamshire - Best in Area 40th England Ranking 89th Britain & Ireland Ranking
There is a very specific sound that accompanies a round on the Duke's and it is the sound of Pinnacle on Pine. This beautiful course is surrounded by pine woods and an er...
