Europe … home to the birthplace of golf. But there is some dispute as to exactly where this now global game of sticks and balls originated. Most would say Scotland, but was the Scottish game merely a variation on a theme developed by the Dutch?

Those who traverse the breadth of Europe with golf clubs in tow can discover a wealth of excellent golfing venues … and an unrivalled variety of cultural distractions. The links courses of Britain and Ireland are legendary. Venture onto the mainland of continental Europe and a wonderful variety of golf offerings open up. Some of the best can be found spread around the continent’s huge coastline, while inland the splendours of parkland, lakeside and mountainside golf are all here in abundance.

To make the most of your vacation, mini-break or business trip, and to help in your planning, you can look up the location of the courses on our customised maps for that country and region.

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)
