Gustav

Love links golf, have played 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.

14th Balearic Islands - Best in Area
Let’s deal with the conditioning point previous reviewers have mentioned straightaway. Greens on the West course have been relaid in 2017, so hopefully it should have its...

Son Muntaner 05/11/2017

4th Balearic Islands - Best in Area 90th Spain Ranking
Feel it is appropriate to come back with another review on Son Muntaner after the course was completely regrassed in 2016 and holes 5 and 6 rerouted back to their origina...

Portsalon 18/09/2017

5th Donegal - Best in Area 21st Ireland Ranking
It is easy to leave very good courses off the itinerary because there are great courses nearby. I would argue that anyone who ignores Portsalon and puts Rosapenna Sandy H...

Just came back for this year's trip to Donegal. Despite also playing the scenic and wonderful courses at Ballyliffin, Rosapenna, Narin&Portnoo and Portsalon, it is the cr...

11th Surrey - Best in Area 34th England Ranking 80th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Expectations play a big role in shaping the experience. Having read glowing reviews on Hindhead at this site and elsewhere, mine were unfortunately set too high. The topo...

Hankley Common 09/06/2017

8th Surrey - Best in Area 29th England Ranking 70th Britain & Ireland Ranking
If you have time for just one round of heathland golf, I suggest you choose Hankley. I immediately think of two reasons:1) Many heathland courses were built on open spac...

New Zealand 09/06/2017

14th Surrey - Best in Area 54th England Ranking
I have friend who really enjoys the yesteryear atmosphere of clubs like Brancaster, Luffness, Swinley Forest and Rye. Unfortunately, he could not join us at New Zealand....

Sand 09/05/2017

7th South & West Sweden - Best in Area 10th Sweden Ranking
I have seen two very different views of Sand GC: 1) a fabulous modern inland links course, 2) an artificial course slightly out of tune with the surrounding landscape. T...

Biarritz Le Phare 15/04/2017

9th South West France - Best in Area 52nd France Ranking
Coming from old, compact, hemmed-in golf courses in London, I felt at home at once when I played Biarritz the first time. As is the case with many clubs in such settings,...

Wimereux 15/04/2017

25th North East France - Best in Area 56th France Ranking
In the early 90s, the club had no irrigation, so playing it during a dry summer felt like going back to the early days of the game of golf. It is also a treasured persona...

Maioris 15/04/2017

13th Balearic Islands - Best in Area
The first time I visited Maioris in October 2016 the course was in such awful shape that one ball would have been too much! The manager immediately gave us vouchers to co...

Dunbar 26/03/2017

6th Lothians - Best in Area 39th Scotland Ranking
Why do we not play Dunbar every time we are in the region? The usual reason is that someone wants to play North Berwick and/or Muirfield. Sounds familiar? I am not going...

Falkenberg (18-hole) 06/02/2017

36th South & West Sweden - Best in Area 58th Sweden Ranking
Falkenberg neither has the cachet of nearby Tylösand with Halmstad GK's flagship North Course, only slightly more than half an hour's drive along the coast to the south,...
