Where2Golf Course Ratings:
Where2Golf has applied a rating to each golf course visited, based on the personal experiences and views of the Where2Golf team. The course ratings range from 5 highest, to 2 lowest. They attempt to provide an indication of the golfing experience you might expect at the course. The ratings are based on our personal assessment of three things:
The quality of the clubhouse, practice ground and associated facilities beyond the golf course are not factored into the ratings. In each rating category we highlight the top courses with a “plus” sign. In our view a 4+ course offers something in addition to a standard 4-star course, in terms of course design, conditioning or scenery beyond the course.
Course type: Something about the course itself. For example:
Course surroundings: Something about what lies beyond the course:
Walking the course: Something about the physical effort needed to get round the course.
Hotel ratings shown in the Where2Stay section are taken from published hotel guides; they are not the assessment of the Where2Golf team. In line with providing details of the best golf courses, we have attempted to provide details on some of the better hotels in the neighbourhood of the courses.
US Women's PGA Championship: located just outside Philadelphia, the famed Donald Ross layout of Aronimink Golf Club hosts the third women’s major championship of 2020 (Oct 8-11).
Scottish Open: first played in 1972, this year’s championship is again played on the Tom Doak-designed Renaissance Club course, which sits alongside mighty Muirfield in East Lothian (Oct 1-4).
Jim Furyk: in winning the Pure Insurance Championship at Pebble Beach Golf Links, “The Grinder” joined Arnold Palmer and Bruce Fleisher as the only players to win their first two starts on the PGA Tour Champions.
Georgia Hall: recorded her first win in an LPGA Tour event on American soil at this year’s Portland Classic, played at Columbia Edgewater Country Club … on the edge of the Columbia River.
Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges. Shoehorned into this 4,600 yard treasure trove are ten par-3s, seven par-4s and a good-length par-5. Here you'll find all the seaside scenery a golfer could ask for, and a lot more besides.
