Golf Course Reviews

The Algonquin Golf Club. New Brunswick

22/11/2018 by .

I’m standing on the 13th tee facing a bit of a dilemma. Practically lapping at my feet, the immense Bay of Fundy awaits like a giant magnet all along the right-hand side of the fairway. To the left, a jungle of gorse and god knows what. Right then, I suppose there’s no other option except straight down the middle.

Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club

Peter is the genius behind the clubhouse vegetable soup apparently. “the splash of curry powder is the secret” he whispers to me as he shows me the way to Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club first tee. Just as well he did, as these links courses can be tricky to navigate, and getting lost on the way […]

The South Course review. Quinta do Lago

If ever there was a golf course which captured the hearts of golfers around the world then the South Course at Quinta do Lago is a perfect example. This is a course you will never forget for a variety of reasons; aesthetically she is the real deal, bordering the Ria Formosa nature park and meandering through umbrella pine forest with stunning villas lining the fairways. Then there is the elevation, some dramatic changes perhaps echoing Augusta in many places. The huge greens are formula 1 speed with some very tricky slopes to negotiate and like Quinta’s other two championship courses, the new North Course and Laranjal, you can score well with good course management and accurate shot making.

North Course review. Quinta do Lago

Rarely has a golf course on The Algarve received so much speculation than the new version 2.0 North Course at Quinta do Lago. Perhaps it was because, in times of so called austerity, eye brows were raised when €10million was spent on a revamp to a course that was already one of the most popular in the region along with her sisters the South Course and Laranjal. Or perhaps more likely, it was a genius move to improve it and then be in the enviable position of having three world class championship courses under one roof so to speak.

Laranjal golf course review. Quinta do Lago

If oranges could talk there would no doubt be a few choice words from them about how things have changed from the old days when this was a simple orange grove. These days the oranges trees line manicured fairways as the stunning Laranjal golf course winds its way through this fertile part of the Quinta do Lago estate.

Constance Lemuria Golf Course

Lemuria I’m told stands for Lost Land, better it should be renamed Lost Balls in my view such is the shock and awe you experience playing the Constance Lemuria golf course on Praslin Island in The Seychelles. This is the only 18 hole course on the islands and if looks are anything to go by, there can be nothing better in my opinion. She is quite simply a stunner.
