Golf Country Club Saint Donat

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

Golf Country Club Saint Donat: If you want to give your golf game a thorough workout in pleasant parkland surroundings, then Saint Donat will certainly oblige. Here beside the small La Mourachonne river in the Grand Vallon de Grasse, Robert Trent Jones Jr has created a good but tough layout in a relatively compact area.

The opening and closing holes require precise driving, with the river an ever-present danger. In the middle section of the course there is a lot less water (the par-3 10th excepted) and more room to manouevre from the tee. However, good bunkering and large greens will keep you on your toes. The layout includes a few blind drives, although much of the time you play from nicely elevated tee boxes that give a clear view of the hazards ahead.

On the way round you'll encounter two substantial derelict villas. One is marked on the scorecard as a 4-star hotel, which may perhaps be the case, but only if they replace the missing doors, windows and roof!

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.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
