Fox Harb'r Golf Resort & Spa: This luxury Stay&Play golf resort on the Northumberland Strait in Nova Scotia, is home to an excellent big-dimension Graham Cooke design. The relatively open gently undulating terrain combines a mix of challenging parkland and links-style holes. The layout embraces quiet pine forests, as well as open linksy stretches directly along the seashore.

The front-nine of this well maintained modern layout takes you around an "inland loop" of holes. Predominantly parkland in character, the holes are lined by woodland, wetland and some notably threatening water hazards. The generally good-width fairways are often flanked by large sprawling bunkers, while plenty of small pot bunkering also lies in wait around the greens.

As you set out on the back-nine loop, you'll immediately enjoy views onto Northumberland Strait and across to Prince Edward Island. These views continue throughout the back-nine, the panoramas expanding the closer you get to the seashore itself. The holes also become more open, undulating and linksy on this second nine.

Fox Harb'r's closing stretch, from the par-3 15th to the par-4 17th, hugs the boulder strewn shoreline. A real touch of auld Scottish links in Nova Scotia. The attractive par-3 15th plays over a reed-lined pond. From the tips of the par-4 16th you'll need to drive across a rocky cove onto the fairway beyond. This trio of seaside holes provides a great climax to a great course, with stunning views out to sea and along the rugged coast. And you'll still need to play the doglegging and dangerously water-defended par-5 18th, which heads inland, gently climbing back to the clubhouse.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.

Prince's Golf Club, Kent (UK)

Here at Prince’s Golf Club you'll find 27 excellent holes of links golf.

The three nine-hole loops at Prince's, laid out over gently undulating terrain, are sure to bring a smile of satisfaction to all lovers of links golf.

Stay&Play at Prince's: excellent onsite Lodge accommodation available
