Windross Farm Golf Course

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

Est. 2011

Windross Farm Golf Course: This recent addition to the golfing scene around Auckland arrived at the behest of the members of the former Manukau Golf Club. When the members decided to sell their plot alongside the Pahurehure Inlet (it was transformed into a hi-density housing development), they opted for a move inland to a new course next to the small Ardmore Airport.

Laid out on a former potato field, this not overly long links-style layout offers a mix of flat and undulating terrain, several small man-made lakes and bearded rustic-looking bunkers. "Minimalism" and an understated philosophy drove the design of the course, as well as the clubhouse and other facilities.

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.
