Alnmouth: Harry’s Clifftop Links

The first hole on this Harry Colt design appears to play into one very large, open field. But don’t let that put you off, because some of the finest links further north do likewise. While Alnmouth isn’t a links it very much wants to be and a day’s golf here is as enjoyable as anywhere else.

Linden Hall: Golf And Game Pie

It’s pheasant hunting season, but no one’s told the green staff at Linden Hall Golf & Country Club. There were more pheasants on the fairways than golfers on this surprisingly good parkland layout in Northumberland. Read our course review.

Goswick: England’s Most Northerly Links

Goswick is the most northerly golf course in England with pot bunkers, small greens, burns, rumples and a stretch of rippling sand dunes you could lose a small child in. Add some unexploded WWII mines that frequently wash up on the beach below and you get an idea of the hazards awaiting on this classic English golf links.

Eléa: Lost In A Bunker

Eléa in Cypriot means death-by-sand, if it doesn’t it should, because there are bunkers everywhere on the gentle slopes above Paphos. Read more in our course review, where we examine the damage to our sand wedge!

Castle Stuart: Open Season!

For such a young course Castle Stuart has a strong pedigree. It is probably because of the thoroughly enjoyable test the course offers…yes its difficult, but you’ll still be smiling all the way round! Read our course review.

Mount Juliet: Irish Swagger In Kilkenny

Mount Juliet has swagger. It has staged the Irish Open three times, and two WGC American Express Championships. Winners include Tiger Woods, Ernie Els and Nick Faldo. It was also the first course Jack Nicklaus’s designed in Ireland. Read our course review.

Dundonald: Classic Links, Modern Twist

Sometimes it’s hard to get a proper sense of the history of a place, and sometimes it’s so in your face that you swear you can hear bagpipes drifting on the wind. For such a new course Dundonald Links has that sense of place and history. Read our course review.

TPC Las Vegas golf review

TPC Las Vegas: The Best Show In Town!

On the 11th of July and 114 degrees, it was officially the hottest day of the year. What a great day to play TPC Las Vegas…but what a thrill, see if I survived the desert in our course review.
