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.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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,...

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...
