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.

Bro Hof Slott (Castle) 12/06/2022

6th Central & North Sweden - Best in Area 16th Sweden Ranking
The Castle course at Bro Hof is a very different proposition from its tour venue, the Stadium course. It is not only the favourite of many members but increasingly also t...

Worplesdon 12/06/2022

9th Surrey - Best in Area 30th England Ranking 73rd Britain & Ireland Ranking
Worplesdon was the highest ranked track we played during a week of heathland golf, mainly in and around Bournemouth and in my book it was head and shoulders above all the...

Ferndown (Old) 12/06/2022

3rd Dorset - Best in Area 49th England Ranking

Stoneham 30/05/2022

3rd Hampshire - Best in Area 65th England Ranking
Stoneham is an interesting experience and certainly unlike most other courses I have played. It is undulating as a links course, hilly with fairways going up and down as...

Son Quint 21/04/2022

8th Balearic Islands - Best in Area
The greens on this course now play firmer and faster than I remember that they did pre-pandemic. (The course was closed during much of 2020.) I also have noticed that gre...

T Golf Calvia 09/11/2021

5th Balearic Islands - Best in Area
I am one of the many who now have T Club Poniente as my favourite course on the island. The combination of a (1) very playable design, (2) firm conditions and (3) immacul...

Dumbarnie Links 04/10/2021

3rd Fife - Best in Area 17th Scotland Ranking 40th Britain & Ireland Ranking
A collection of 18 visually stunning holes, but difficult to keep track of where on the property you are or have been. A real championship test with lots of variety, but...

Leven Links 04/10/2021

11th Fife - Best in Area 50th 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

7th Fife - Best in Area 34th Scotland Ranking
Lundin’s course was in much better condition than neighbouring Leven when we played them both last week. The comparison is inevitable as both courses are laid out on the...

Short, beautiful, tight. Great fun. I could actually stop there, because you should appreciate places like East Berkshire for what they are. Great, well-run member's club...

Woking 15/09/2021

Local knowledge really counts in a place like this. A couple of examples to illustrate my point: The short par 4 first hole calls for a long iron from the tee unless you'...

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

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...

My expectations were set quite low as the previous review on Top100 was not the only negative data point I had. However, if you can ignore the motorway and aircraft noise...
