Hugh

I've been playing golf for more than 40 years and have taken my clubs on my business trips and family holidays. I must have played more than 1,000 courses and all but a handful of Britain & Ireland’s Top 100. I’ve followed this website since its inception and have enjoyed airing my subjective opinions. It’s amazing how wildly views differ and sometimes I wonder if I played the same course as some reviewers as the gap in opinion is so often broad. My handicap has risen from 7 to 11 as my age has increased and my enthusiasm for practising decreased but I still enjoy playing different courses as much today as I did 4 decades ago. Vive les domaines de golf.

Cardrona 02/12/2004

2nd Borders - Best in Area
Cardrona is clearly a new developing course and it will surely improve as time goes by. I actually enjoyed the whole experience and it’s important when you need to pick a...

5th Angus & Dundee - Best in Area 55th Scotland Ranking
Downfield isn't exactly your typical Scottish golf course but it's the one to play on the way (or on the way back) to Carnoustie. Even links lovers will like this delight...

Little Aston 24/11/2004

1st Staffordshire - Best in Area 43rd England Ranking 97th Britain & Ireland Ranking
A good honest parkland course in immaculate condition. I played it in the summer and I enjoyed it but somehow I expected a little bit more. Little Aston has been hyped up...

Wallasey 21/11/2004

3rd Cheshire - Best in Area 59th England Ranking
Considering Wallasey is right next door to Hoylake, there is a marked difference between the two...there are some serious dunes at Wallasey and Hoylake is as flat as a pa...

The Grove 19/11/2004

1st Hertfordshire - Best in Area 69th England Ranking
Played here a couple of weeks ago and I was impressed. It's a lot of money for sure but they do look after you. The turf on the greens, tees and fairways is faultless - t...

Letham Grange (Old) 12/11/2004

6th Angus & Dundee - Best in Area 66th Scotland Ranking
It's not your archetypal Scottish course but we had a thoroughly enjoyable day here. The New course is certainly shorter and not as good as the Old but it's worth playing...

Shiskine 04/11/2004

12th Ayrshire & Arran - Best in Area 95th Scotland Ranking
Shiskine is worth playing for the stunning views alone. Granted, the course itself is somewhat quirky but it's tremendous value and good fun too. If you visit the Isle of...

Southerndown 29/10/2004

4th South Wales - Best in Area 9th Wales Ranking
Southerndown is a very enjoyable, hilly and exposed course, perhaps not in the same league as Royal Porthcawl in terms of the collection of holes or the condition…but the...

Dartmouth (Championship) 14/10/2004

7th Devon - Best in Area
The most notable thing about Dartmouth's Championship course is the variety of each hole and the overall challenge. There is absolutely no room for error...you must keep...

Mount Juliet 30/09/2004

1st Kilkenny - Best in Area 19th Ireland Ranking
You have to admire what Nicklaus did at Mount Juliet...he's created a fun and challenging golf course. It's not the most natural course in Ireland, the mounds provide goo...

Roxburghe 27/08/2004

1st Borders - Best in Area 57th Scotland Ranking
One of the best new courses in Scotland. It's not a Kingsbarns or a Southern Gailes, but it's one of my favourites. There's nothing stuffy about this place - OK it's a bi...
