3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Naxhelet Golf Club: Located on a plateau overlooking the "Meuse" and "Mehaigne" valleys, Naxhelet features an absorbing Martin Hawtree designed layout, as well as excellent practice facilities, a large award-winning clubhouse and onsite accommodation.

Laid out in two contrasting nine-hole loops on either side of the impressive clubhouse, the Naxhelet championship course contains a variety of good, bad and downright ugly golf holes. The front-nine offers the most undulation, some lovely views, and a relatively open linksy feel to the golf. There's plenty of threatening bunkering and a rolling character to the good-width fairways.

The flatter back-nine provides a less scenically interesting assortment of holes, and arguably a tougher test than the "outward" half. Water puts in two or three telling appearances, not least alongside the long par-4 11th (the stroke index 1 hole for good reason). The same ponds come back into play at the par-5 12th. After skirting beside a food processing plant at the short par-5 14th, and then into a separate field for back-to-back short par-4s, the layout serves up an excellent par-4 to close out the round a short distance from the clubhouse.

European Tour: 2021 marks the 50th and last season of the world renowned European Tour, launched in April 1972 at the Spanish Open. From 2022 the Tour will be sponsored by Dubai-based global supply chain and ports operator DP World, and will be known as the DP World Tour.

South African Open: December 2021 events in South Africa have again been impacted by the Covid pandemic. The South African Open (Dec 2-5) will no longer be played as a DP World Tour event, and the Alfred Dunhill Championship (Dec 9-12) has been cancelled.

Who's Who:
Bernhard Langer: at age 64, Langer collected a record sixth Charles Schwab Cup, the only player to have won the season-long points chase more than twice. He also topped the PGA Tour Champions money-list for the 11th time out of a possible 13 since 2008.

Carlota Ciganda: the five-time Solheim Cup star was delighted to record a fourth Ladies European Tour win in her home national championship, the Ladies Spanish Open.
