Baltusrol (Lower) 15/10/2006

5th New Jersey - Best in Area
Was lucky enough to play both courses last summer and the Lower certainly gets the upper hand on the Upper for me although the Lower just fails in my eyes to reach the hi...

Barwon Heads 26/03/2010

16th Victoria - Best in Area 30th Australia Ranking 38th Oceania Ranking
For me, Barwon Heads was the surprise of my trip. This was reminiscent of a traditional British links course and even the clubhouse felt homely and traditional. Why can’t...

Bamburgh Castle 26/10/2006

6th 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...

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

26th 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...

The Golf Club at Black Rock 22/02/2012

4th Idaho - Best in Area
Simply an excellent course but not for the faint heart. Golf on steroids, bold, brash and exciting. I have no idea what the other poster meant by saying "Jim Engh really"...

Fairhaven 01/11/2006

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...

Birr 20/11/2006

3rd Offaly - Best in Area 79th 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...

National (Old) 26/03/2010

9th Victoria - Best in Area 15th Australia Ranking 20th Oceania Ranking
RTJ II has a habit of creating tough courses and the Old is no exception. The tight rollercoaster greens seemed a bit tricked up for my liking and coupled with narrow tre...

Kittansett 09/12/2006

7th Massachusetts - Best in Area 73rd USA Ranking 84th North America Ranking
When I last played at Kitannsett back in 2004, the greens were running at more than 11 on the stimp and the course was dry and fast running, it was just like playing a li...

St Annes Old Links 01/11/2006

9th 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...

Medinah (No.3) 26/10/2006

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...

Highgate 04/01/2009

8th Middlesex - Best in Area
Played Highgate for the first time last November and I was rather impressed. There are many OK golf courses inside the M25 to the north of the capital including clubs suc...

Mullingar 24/11/2006

2nd Westmeath - Best in Area 64th 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...

Valhalla 01/09/2008

2nd Kentucky - Best in Area
I have a friend who’s a member at Valhalla and I played here in May 2008 after a gap of some four years since I last played here and the changes made by Nicklaus ahead of...

Well I’m surprised to be the first to post a review for Pebble Beach… surely tens of thousands have played here judging by the number of people who were out on the course...
