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.

2nd Dublin - Best in Area 8th Ireland Ranking 51st Britain & Ireland Ranking
Great vintage links golf. Majestic sandhills. One drawback: packed with people on our August 2014 visit. Don't know whether this is a regular occurrence, but if it is, gi...

St Anne's 09/03/2015

10th Dublin - Best in Area 90th Ireland Ranking
Let us be fair: you do not play St Anne's to see golf architecture at its finest, or most original. All holes are oriented in the same direction going back and forth over...

7th Balearic Islands - Best in Area
Played Son Vida for the first time in January 2015. The course opened in 1964 and it shows in the design (short, narrow, small greens). This means that if your tee-shots...
