Skövde Golfklubb (Sodra/South course)

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

Est. 1989

Skövde Golfklubb (Sodra/South course): Skovde seems quite an industrial town with cement works and wood chipping mills, but once you're on this excellent golf course industrialisation is left far behind.

The spectacularly big and spacey Sodra Banan (South course) layout has been magnificently sculpted from a mature forest by Peter Nordwall. But its not so much the trees lining the fairways that you'll come to fear, as much as the dangerously deep rough.

On a first outing you'll be looking at seemingly tight tee-shots, only to be amazed at how much room there actually is for safely landing your drives - but you'll need to hit either fairway or semi-rough, the alternative is usually knee-high jungle or asteroid-crater type bunkering.

With many excellent dog-leg par-4's and zig-zag par-5's, you'll either be thrilled by this wonderfully natural golf course, or left cursing the ball count in your bag has gone below the comfort level.

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 five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.

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)
