The Skovbanen (Forest course) at Holstebro Golfklub is one of the best championship golf courses in Denmark. There's quite a heathland feel to this predominantly pine tree-lined layout, which provides a wonderful test for your all-round game.

Heather lines several of the fairways, while grassy fescues play their part in the more open areas. A much admired northern outpost for heathland golf, which benefitted from the attentions of Robert Trent Jones Jr in the mid-2000s.

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.
