Wailea Golf Club - Emerald & Gold Course
Played both Emerald and Gold several times while staying nearby. Surroundings are absolutely stunning, with views of the ocean and the surrounding islands on most holes. Both are pretty good, Gold is the championship course and as such in slightly better condition and more challenging. Emerald has the edge for being slightly more diverse and prettier.

Golf de Margaux
Stayed at the Relais de Margaux during Easter Holidays. There is a general atmosphere of "tristesse", as the accommodation and installations are old and tired and exude a sense of faded glory. The surroundings are pretty, in a tranquil corner of Margaux village, bordering the Medoc river, and the design of the course in itself is interesting - narrow, tree-lined fairways,…

Stayed in the onsite M-Gallery hotel and played Chateaux twice as Vignes was closed for maintenance. Beautiful course in tranquil heather and pine tree forest, mostly wide and flat, but that doesn't mean there isn't enough variation and excitement, as the design of the course is truly excellent, and the members we played with said great things about les Vignes, so will co…

Woolston Manor Golf Club
Close to Central London, parkland course with good value green fees. No driving range, but there is a top golf next door. Well stocked proshop and lively clubhouse. The course is mostly flat and wide, and the front nine are somewhat monotonous, with 6 almost interchangeable par 4's. More thought has been put into the back 9,. with a more varied layout and the most unique …

Invited to play at the upscale Centurion Club, situated between Hemel Hampstead and St Albans. Unusual design, with 7 par 5 and 6 par 4 holes. Very good quality facilities and maintenance, with a halfway house at the turn serving sandwiches and a full range of drinks. Very hard greens, and almost all holes are long or play long (uphill), and pretty unforgiving rough, so t…

Wanstead Golf Club
20 GBP twilight teetime,20 minutes from Central London. The first 5 holes are almost identical long,. straight par 4's. Thereafter the layout becomes more varied and interesting. Pretty but noisy surroundings (Epping forest), good maintenance. Holes 2-5 are 500 yards from the rest of the course, make sure to ask for directions to the 2nd tee, it is not easy to find.

Cleydael Golf & Country Club
Parkland course some 20 minutes from Antwerp. Short on-site driving range, to warm-up driver, cross the road to the nearby golf school. Course feels deceptively short (but isn't, measuring a respectable 6,200 meters from the whites), and is entirely flat. The front nine lack inspiration, back nine have more appeal. The close proximity of the car park adds a little spice t…

Stoke-by-Nayland Golf Club
Good facilities, three restaurants, a resort hotel and two 18 hole courses less than two hours from London. Played The Gainsborough on a busy Sunday afternoon. The front nine lacks inspiration with a number of parallel, very similar holes, some of which don't seem to fit with the extremely undulating terrain. Back nine more pleasant, but with different holes close togethe…

Ipswich Golf Club
Possibly my new favourite golf course in the UK, this is a stunning course - beautiful surroundings (pine forest, Heather, wild flowers, glimpse of beautiful water lilly ponds through the trees) very well maintained, and the James Baird layout is an absolute delight. Only negative is the lack of full size practice facilities (although there is a great short game area).

Hilly parkland course 15 minutes outside of Lausanne. Majestic old trees and natural flower beds give this course a very special character. Very well maintained course, comfortable dressing rooms, outstanding facilities and a sunny terrace to enjoy drinks and well presented food.

Golf Club du Domaine Impérial
Where the happy few are looked down upon by the even happier and fewer. This exclusive golf club on the banks of Lac Leman is situated 30 mins from Lausanne, close to Nyon village. Wonderful Pete Dye design routed through a beautiful forest. To our surprise, the lake can only be viewed from the clubhouse and the 18th green. (Look out for hikers, a number of public footpat…

Golf Club Crans-sur-Sierre
I did not love the 9-hole Nicklaus course (very narrow, watch out for other players looking for stray balls on pretty much every hole), and was not entirely blown away by the Ballesteros course either.
Sure, a course of this quality at this altitude, and offering these views is quite unique and it is certainly an amazing experience to play here. But there is a lot of cou…

Golf Club de Sion
Pleasant course with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and vineyards. Nice layout, a warm welcome and good maintenance and facilities make for a relaxing and enjoyable round. Negatives: proximity of the noisy motorway, and at 110 CHF for a midweek 4 PM teetime not the cheapest.

Golf Club Interlaken-Unterseen
Nicely laid out parkland course on the bank of Lake Thun. Entirely flat, but surrounded by stunning mountains. Front 9 relatively straightforward, back 9 more strategic planning is required. Considering that the course was partly flooded less than 3 weeks ago, it was in stunning condition.

Beautiful course with several standout holes, very well-maintained and stunning vistas of the surrounding countryside. After a relatively relaxed start, the elevation changes become pretty extreme, and lots of excitement awaits - except the bland finishing hole. Consider hiring a buggy!

Played La Marache on a beautiful early May day, which made the beauty of the course and its surroundings really come out. The course winds through mature parkland and forest, offering stunning views of the surrounding countryside in some places, and of the large country homes and gardens around the course in others. Clever design and routing but not a fan of three success…

Impressive facilities and very friendly staff (we arrived 10 minutes late for our booked teetime - we had called to notify an hour in advance - and despite a busy schedule, the staff did everything to accommodate us with a smile). The whole experience reminds of a high end course in England (The Grove comes to mind). Free range balls, stroke saver, lunch pack,... Impressi…

Golf Château de la Tournette
Beautiful, well-maintained parkland course(s) 20 minutes south of Brussels. Played the American on a wet autumn day. The fairways have still not recovered from the dry summer, exposing several bald patches, and the last couple of weeks of rain have left the course soggy and heavy. The design is spectacular: lots of elevation changes, several long carries over water, blind…

Short-ish course in a stunning park. Not a fan of the lay-out: most holes are quite narrow and there is a very high number of doglegs. Despite the beautiful surroundings, there is a nervous, busy feel about the club: the 2 courses are intertwined, and there are many places where players from different holes will cross, or where several greens and tees are close each other…

Royal Golf Club of Belgium Ravenstein
Exclusive private club in arboretum connected to royal domain. Old school parkland design and layout. Beautiful surroundings, but not blown away by the quality of the course or the maintenance. Played during a club out competition, so focused on my score rather than the experience. Wouldn't mind returning for a more relaxed round.

Golf de Biscarrosse
Came back to Biscarosse after playing (and loving) this course 4 years ago. The course is carved out among the dunes, heather and pine forest of biscarosse, which means hilly, narrow fairways, stunning, tranquil scenery and lots of shade to protect from the heat. The lay-out is OK but not spectacular, and has an old school feel, similar to traditional heathland courses in…

Parkland course playing rather long on very flat terrain. OK layout, but a few exceptions aside, most of the holes are pretty forgettable. A few picturesque holes around the lake "Paalse Plas", but also a couple of holes very close to a busy, noisy motorway. Driving range with free range balls and - unusually - a lake (!). Good overall course maintenance, very nice facili…

The Robert Trent Jones Sr lay-out is pretty spectacuar, and pretty much every shot requires careful planning and creates a technical as well as tactical challenge. In addition, the course is great fun to play - several holes have elevated tees, there are some long carries over water, a couple dog legs,... The …

Highlights: the back-to-back par 5's on 7 and 8, the relatively short, but pretty exciti…

Very warm welcome on a cold but sunny November's day. Course in great shape for time of year. Very playable course in tranquil, mature parkland surroundings some 45 minutes from downtown Manhattan. Probably some of the most unusual and challenging greens I have seen. Clubhouse deserted and locker rooms closed down for renovation, which gave the place a bit of a desolate l…

Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club
Legendary links course that is steeped in history, which is apparent the moment you walk through the doors of the clubhouse, with scoreboards and other memorabilia dating back to the late 1800's / early 1900's. The 1920 Open was won with rounds of 80,80,71 and 72, and so to call this a difficult course is a cliche and an understatement. I played in a stiff breeze, which a…
