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

Orchid Country Club: Located in the northern part of Singapore this 27-hole course plays directly alongside the shoreline of the expansive Lower Seletar Reservoir. Its three nine-hole loops, each named after a famous orchid, all have holes flanked by the reservoir, and all 27-holes are available for night golf.

The Dendro, Vanda and Aranda nines offer wonderfully open, linksy, lakeside golf. Playing alongside the wide reservoir creates a distinctly seaside feel at times, while the relatively sparse population of trees, square-cut tee-boxes, rolling fairways and excellent bunkering reinforce Orchid's links-like credentials.

The gently undulating, open terrain provides several nicely elevated tee-boxes, as well as wonderful views onto the lake, with Seletar Country Club in the distance on the opposite bank. Water hazards are often in play here, either the lake itself or creeks cutting in from it. The most dangerous of these creeks meanders through Vanda's short par-5 6th hole (a hole that also boasts an orchid shaped bunker).

With plenty of breezes coming off the lake, there are times, not least on the occasionally narrower Vanda course, when accuracy rather than length is what's needed from the tee. The mainly elevated greens usually require a high approach shot into them to clear the ever-present (and often deep) greenside bunkering. When safely on the putting surface the challenge lies in unravelling their many slopes and borrows.

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)

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
