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.

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...

Laytown & Bettystown 09/03/2015

3rd Meath - Best in Area 75th Ireland Ranking
A step back in time, whether you consider the course or the staff, ignoring actual age, just describing the experience here. However, if you embrace this, you might have...

Son Vida 17/01/2015

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...

Son Gual 17/01/2015

2nd Balearic Islands - Best in Area 16th Spain Ranking 83rd Continental Europe Ranking
Played Son Gual in January with melting frost on the fairways, which must be an unusual feat. Despite this, the ground staff had managed to present a course in more than...

23rd Finland Ranking
Played this course a while ago. Very beautiful site and the course sits well in it. As a Swede, both the layout and the site itself reminded me a lot of Vidbynäs North....

5th Central & North Sweden - Best in Area 15th Sweden Ranking
Great views over Lake Malaren, thanks to which the wind is often a factor. Pleasant off the regular tees, difficult off the back tees. Excellent practice facilities with...

Bro Hof Slott (Castle) 01/08/2014

4th Central & North Sweden - Best in Area 11th Sweden Ranking
A very good course in excellent condition, as you would expect from the reputation of this place. The best is that it can be yours - all yours - for a lot less than most...

Vasatorp (TC) 01/08/2014

6th South & West Sweden - Best in Area 9th Sweden Ranking
So, how come I feel underwhelmed having played a perfectly good golf course and the current venue of Sweden's only LET event? (The Helsingborg Open will be played here ag...

Ashburnham 15/05/2014

2nd West Wales - Best in Area 8th Wales Ranking
Played Ashburnham after Tenby, Pennard and Royal Porthcawl and before P&K. Regret to say that I hold it towards the bottom of this top group, despite a great stretch on t...

Pennard 13/05/2014

2nd South Wales - Best in Area 2nd Wales Ranking 71st Britain & Ireland Ranking
This is one of the few courses you could truly recommend taking non-golfers to! The walk, with or without clubs, is just fantastic and the views just keep getting better...

Kungliga Drottningholm 13/05/2014

6th Central & North Sweden - Best in Area 17th Sweden Ranking
Post-renovation, Drottningholm is surely one of the most inspiring places to play in the Stockholm area. The greens really make you think, all the way back to the tee, as...

Tenby 05/05/2014

1st West Wales - Best in Area 7th Wales Ranking
The winter has really been hard on Tenby's fairways and greens. On top they have ambitiously cut back encroaching vegetation. This meant that at the end of April 2014, th...

Pyle and Kenfig 05/05/2014

5th South Wales - Best in Area 10th Wales Ranking
Played Royal Porthcawl, P&K, Pennard, Ashburnham and Tenby on a tour recently. Overall RP was of course the best course, but for me 11-15 at P&K was by far the most memor...

By far the most original of the courses we played in the Highlands (Brora, Tain, Dornoch and Fortrose), and I am very happy we included it. Not only did the dolphins obli...
