3rd Westmeath - Best in Area 90th Ireland Ranking
Finally managed to get to stay and play at Glasson in summer 2006 after having had the course on my list of Irish tracks to play for some years. First of all the positive...

Mullingar 24/11/2006

1st Westmeath - Best in Area 53rd Ireland Ranking
Mullingar starts strongly and finishes weakly which is unfortunately the wrong way round. The 18th was a OK reachable par five but now it’s a bizarre hole that is out of...

Birr 20/11/2006

3rd Offaly - Best in Area 68th Ireland Ranking
Birr is perhaps the second best Irish inland course after Castle Golf Club and I suspect few people will have heard of either. Let me put this into perspective and I’m no...

Castle Golf Club 18/11/2006

6th Dublin - Best in Area 57th Ireland Ranking
This is a bold statement but I think Castle is the best inland course in Ireland. For me it’s better than both courses at the K Club, Mount Juliet, Adare, Druids Glen (bo...

St Annes Old Links 01/11/2006

8th Lancashire - Best in Area
A nice links course but not as tough as it's Royal neighbour. Aesthetically more pleasing but not in the same league - nevertheless a decent links and the par three 9th i...

7th Lancashire - Best in Area 97th England Ranking
Played Fairhaven on the back of comments on this website and I have to say that I wasn't disappointed. A couple of holes on soggy ground but apart from that this is the r...

Desert Forest 30/10/2006

8th Arizona - Best in Area
If you love golf course architecture then you’ll appreciate Desert Forest. It makes you think on each and every shot but it’s also honest and straightforward with everyth...

Torrey Pines (South) 30/10/2006

25th California - Best in Area
The South course is appreciably better than its sister course the North and the whole Torrey experience for a muni is actually really good. It’s a fair course that’s not...

Bamburgh Castle 27/10/2006

5th Northumberland - Best in Area
This a fun, gem which has kept me amused on and off for twenty years. It’s short but it is not easy and for the first time of playing you’ll need to study the yardage cha...

Medinah (No.3) 27/10/2006

9th Illinois - Best in Area
I’ve played all of the Major courses except for Augusta and for me Medinah is one of the toughest but least enjoyable for this single digit golfer. It’s a monotonous and...

Druids Glen 18/10/2006

2nd Wicklow - Best in Area 21st Ireland Ranking
First of all, I’m not normally a fan of inland resort courses but Druids Glen should not be missed. The whole experience is magnificent and they seemingly have learnt muc...
