Turtle Hill 06/11/2020

5th Bermuda Ranking
It’s not often you play an 18 hole par 3 course, it shouldn’t be judged against a standard course but does it stand up on its own merits, in this case very much so. Route...

Weston-Super-Mare 15/10/2020

3rd Somerset - Best in Area
Weston Super Mare is a charming old school links/seaside course that’s well worth turning off the M5 for. While not in the league of Saunton, St Endoc etc it has plenty o...

3rd Oxfordshire - Best in Area
I read with interest the previous reviews of the course before playing, having now played it a couple of times I understand why it divides opinion. Building a links style...

Saunton (East) 27/07/2020

1st Devon - Best in Area 21st England Ranking 48th Britain & Ireland Ranking
The members at Saunton are truly blessed having a club with two high class links courses. It’s well worth the effort to reach Saunton, not the easiest of locations to acc...

Westerham 14/10/2019

19th Kent - Best in Area
I thoroughly enjoyed my recent round at Westerham in a society day, I must admit to being surprised given its lowly ranking on this site how good it was, possibly its sho...

Frinton (Havers) 30/09/2019

14th Essex - Best in Area
Despite the length of its coastline Essex has very few links courses, I’m not sure why that it is, given the number of turbines off the coast it doesn’t lack wind. More l...

13th Southern Spain - Best in Area 45th Spain Ranking
I played the North Course on a very breezy but warm day in September, it’s part of a wider hotel and apartment complex and it appears almost everyone staying was there to...

Frilford Heath (Red) 24/07/2019

2nd Oxfordshire - Best in Area

Crystal Springs (Ballyowen) 14/05/2019

35th New Jersey - Best in Area
Only a 90 minute drive from central Manhattan in upstate New Jersey stands the Ballyowen course, hard to believe a links style course could be located in the heavily fore...

4th Cornwall - Best in Area 70th England Ranking
I’ve played the Nicklaus course at St Mellion regularly over the last few years so it’s overdue a review. There’s no doubt it can be tough challenge if you’re wayward fro...
