Army 27/09/2019

9th Hampshire - Best in Area
I played Army Golf Club a day after some very heavy rain. My overall impression was a well loved course which was still suffering from the effects of the very dry 2018 an...

Newark 20/09/2019

6th Nottinghamshire - Best in Area
All courses have front and back nines. None that I have played have more contrasting front and back nines. The front nine at Newark is tree lined, relatively long and, at...

Broadstone 07/09/2019

1st Dorset - Best in Area 31st England Ranking 73rd Britain & Ireland Ranking
Broadstone is a big course in a number of ways. First it has elevation, second it has views, third it has space and fourth, despite having only two par fives it has long...

Blackmoor 25/08/2019

3rd Hampshire - Best in Area 75th England Ranking
Blackmoor is an anti-dote the idea that good golf courses must come with a certain degree of snootiness. It is a very good course, and is very much not snooty. It’s a ver...

Royal Blackheath 12/07/2019

18th Kent - Best in Area
Royal Blackheath is quite a grand club. It’s also a decent golf course, to my mind with a better back nine than front nine. A little unusually the course is essentially r...

New Zealand 07/07/2019

15th Surrey - Best in Area 60th England Ranking
What shall we say about New Zealand? It’s certainly golf for gentlemen and gentle ladies. Driving range; I’m afraid not sir: chipping green; not here madam. Putting green...

Fulwell 07/07/2019

2nd Middlesex - Best in Area
I recently played Fulwell. Like Ealing (another of my recent reviews) Fulwell is flat, and has tough greens. I think it’s a bit better than Ealing as there is more room a...

Ealing 06/07/2019

5th Middlesex - Best in Area
Golf course come in many shapes and sizes. Some are grand - not Ealing. Some are long - not Ealing. Some offer you peaceful seclusion - definitely not Ealing. Some make t...

Sweetwoods Park 08/06/2019

17th Sussex - Best in Area
I played very badly at Sweetwoods, so I’ve tried to de-couple how I played from the course. I do broadly agree with the the one previous reviewer; there are some rather d...

Dunstable Downs 02/06/2019

2nd Bedfordshire - Best in Area
I do rather like Dunstable Downs, though it does definitely have some quirks. It’s a course of two parts; 1 to 9 are down in the valley, 10 works it’s way to the top and...

Berkshire (Blue) 18/05/2019

3rd Berkshire - Best in Area 36th England Ranking 85th Britain & Ireland Ranking
It’s been said before, and will no doubt be again, but the Berkshire experience is only in part about the golf courses. The other part is about the 18 hole putting green,...
