Cavendish Golf Club
It is no surprise to most of you, I am a massive Alister MacKenzie fan, so when I was offered the opportunity to play another of his thought provoking designs, I jumped at the chance. Buxton is a spa town in the High Peak borough of Derbyshire, England. It is the highest market town on the edge of the Peak District National park. Even the drive through beautiful Buxton …

Manor House Golf Club at Castle Combe
Staying at the 14th Century Manor House Hotel, Castle Combe near Bath last week and playing the Peter Alliss and Clive Clark designed course was a real treat. The 5* Manor House hotel and restaurant experience was second to non. Nestled in the award winning ‘Prettiest UK Village’ and being home to masterpiece greats such as Warhorse and Downton Abbey.

Son Muntaner Golf (ArabellaGolf)
An opening hole which is almost a 90 degree dog leg right wraps itself around the driving range - Not being a fan of internal OOB this relatively weak opening hole only went on to improve - as if peeling a layer off at a time, Son Muntaner gave more and more as the course unravelled. The harsh winter (relative for Mallorca) the signs of lack of growth and continuous wint…

Son Quint Golf (ArabellaGolf)
Warming up on the pretty driving range allowed the golf ball to roll down the hills into the centre of the 'fairway'- and whilst not indicative of the course, did make for a pleasing start. In fact first impressions when arriving at Son Quint were great, the first has a large stone walled area which makes it look like quality, sadly as you round the corner the harsh winte…

Son Vida Golf (ArabellaGolf)
First impressions were one of, I want to play this course. Despite the time of the year and coming out of a harsh winter (for Mallorca), the course remained green and inviting. There was not a full driving range to practice but a large substantial practice net at the back of a good sized practice green, which ran well and turned out to be indicative of the actual greens …

Golf Son Gual
Playing on what can only be described as a cold windy day with sunshine, the experience was in general a good one. The course design, green to tee was easy to navigate, holes themselves had a good variety from elevated tees to splodge bunkers of irregular but interesting shapes. Hole four was a nearly island green, which added more interest. But overall the course needed…

Clovelly Country Club
From the start, we were made to feel welcome. The club's evolution is a great story in itself. The golf course was very well laid out, after the mirror dog legs on holes one and ten, the course opens up into an interesting play with water, sand and if you're unlucky a strong breeze down the valley. We were lucky and had a welcome slight breeze. Our video can be viewed …

Auchterarder Golf Club
Arguably it isn’t the longest course, there are 6 par 3’s and 3/4 par 5’s. It measures 4967/5800 so is an easy walking course. In the shadow of its big boy neighbours you can catch a glimpse of the PGA Centenary course at Gleneagles as you enjoy playing Auchterarder. Life started in 1913 when Ben Sayers designed a 9 hole golf course. In the early years maintenance was…

Being so close to exceptional links courses, playing Blairgowrie offers a great, yet equally tough golfing experience. Usually without the buffeting wind! ⁠ ⁠ An established woodland course with a huge dollop of heathland thrown in for good measure.

Carnoustie Golf Links
It is unclear where the name Carnoustie came from. Most likely it is from Scandinavian nouns of Car and Noust, meaning Rock and Bay respectively. As you stand on the first tee of the Championship course, the hotel behind you, you’re pretty much out there alone. The Tee box, despite it proximity to the clubhouse and Links House is almost in the middle of the course, or s…

The 18 hole course is called the Dunes measuring 5723 to 7029 yards. Labelled as a dune land course, its look is more akin to the moons surface. With huge dips and hollows being dominated and overshadowed by the dunes, some of the highest in Western Europe. ⁠ ⁠ The whole course was in such amazing condition.

Wales or England? One of the quirky things about Llanymynech is one doesn’t really know where it is! So much so that hole number four, a dog leg left par four of only 323/340 yards is where you tee off in Wales and putt out in England. An elevated tee box encourages the brave to go over the trees in a straight line to the green. Or take on the acute corner and get on it…
