Golf de Chiberta

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1927

Golf de Chiberta: There is an abundance of "old world" linksy charm to much of the course at Chiberta. Together with several oceanside holes, Tom Simpson's design also includes some real touches of masterly craftsmanship.

Two-thirds of the 18-hole course is played in a genuine links setting, complete with sea views, open landscape and (if you are lucky) a modest sea-breeze. The remainder of the course occupies a more tree-lined environment, where the holes are no less inspired. That said, the short par-4 17th is a bit eccentric, with a small pine forest growing up in front of the tee boxes - women may need a pitching wedge to clear the trees.

The slick greens look relatively flat but often contain an array of deceptive slopes and borrows. As long as you keep your ball off the beach and out of the villas dotted around the course, you’ll be in for a real seaside golfing treat at Chiberta.

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.

Prince's Golf Club, Kent (UK)

Here at Prince’s Golf Club you'll find 27 excellent holes of links golf. Just over the fence and sharing similar terrain is Royal St George’s; but Prince’s is far from overshadowed by its venerable neighbour. 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
