Gustav

Love links golf, have played more than 80 of the Top 100 Links Courses of Britain & Ireland, but I enjoy almost any course which facilitates the ground game. Also love playing without having to wait and try to choose courses and tee-off times to achieve this.

9th Fife - Best in Area 48th Scotland Ranking
We played at Leven after a blustery afternoon at Elie and before a sunny day at Lundin. In retrospect, this was the right choice as Leven’s greenkeepers were verti-cuttin...

Lundin 04/10/2021

5th Fife - Best in Area 31st Scotland Ranking

7th Surrey - Best in Area 27th England Ranking 67th Britain & Ireland Ranking

Knole Park 14/09/2021

5th Kent - Best in Area 89th England Ranking
I guess most people will remember their first visit at Knole Park, both because many of the holes are visually inspiring and have few equals in Britain, but also because...

Kungsbacka (Gamla) 11/08/2021

30th South & West Sweden - Best in Area 46th Sweden Ranking
Fence-sitting rarely produces good commentary. Still, it will have to be the basis of my review of Kungsbacka's Old course. 1. The routingParkland, then seaside, then woo...

Arlandastad (Masters) 01/07/2021

11th Central & North Sweden - Best in Area 34th Sweden Ranking

Rya 16/05/2021

17th South & West Sweden - Best in Area 26th Sweden Ranking
