Weston-super-Mare Golf Club

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1892

Weston-super-Mare Golf Club: This is a pleasant links course even though the start feels a tad chaotic for the first time visitor - the 1st, 18th, 10th, 11th and 9th green all seem to compete for a share of the terrain that begins to stretch out in front of you.

Don't expect too much in the way of sand dunes here, the course is reasonably flat and open, with water ditches, thick rough and some wonderfully renovated bunkers providing the key defences.

A large bush-clad bank runs along the sea-ward side of the course, cutting off ocean views from all but two holes - the 5th and 6th. These two par-4's are accessed via a walk across a small caravan park (the seaside feel is never far away !) and they provide the best views across the Bristol Channel to Wales on the other side. Uphill Church, perched on a half-moon cliff rising from the River Axe, provides another interesting feature and a useful sighter for one or two drives.

Did you know?

The signature hole here is the 15th, a difficult 458 yard par-4 with a blind drive over a mound and a long-approach to a well-defended green - it is probably just as difficult to score par here as at the 17th hole of St Andrews Old Course, on which this hole was apparently modelled.

Tournaments

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 four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

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.
