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.

Carne (Hackett) 30/08/2016

1st Mayo - Best in Area 12th Ireland Ranking 59th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Other places try to make the most of their one or two high dunes on the site. At Carne, they had to avoid them in order to create a playable course! These 18 holes are lo...

12th South & West Sweden - Best in Area 19th Sweden Ranking
Set up for golf with a buggy, which I really do mot like. This means that if you decide to walk anyway, you are in for a real workout as many tees are placed on small hil...

20th Lothians - Best in Area
Like many of you, I have been to this area sampling the links golf delights many times without giving Gullane no. 3 a second thought, maybe thinking it would be OK to pla...

3rd Balearic Islands - Best in Area 76th Spain Ranking
Do you like firm and fast conditions? Having trouble finding them in January? At least in 2016, look no further than Puntiró! Did not have to repair a single pitch-mark a...

Son Quint 03/12/2015

8th Balearic Islands - Best in Area
Son Quint is a great place for your first round on Mallorca, before going on to try to tame the bigger beasts. You can easily walk it, it does not intimidate you by being...
