Golf Club Bad Saarow (Faldo course)

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1992

The Faldo course at Golf Club Bad Saarow (formerly known as Sporting Club Berlin Scharmützelsee) is the centrepiece of this top-quality golf resort. The open links-style design, crafted by Britian's six-time major champion, is supported by the also highly-rated (and easier-going) Palmer and Eby layouts.

The excellent links-style Faldo layout, with its open character and many pot bunkers (133 in all), contains a wealth of challenging holes. Links golf enthusiasts will enjoy the square-cut teeing grounds, rolling terrain, rippling mounds and relative absence of trees ( ... although there's plenty of woodland around the perimeter ... but no roads or housing). Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game in spades, and well worth going out of your way to play.

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.
