Mid South Club: The key golfing ingredients of the Talamore Golf Resort are the Talamore course itself, and its very attractive and challenging companion layout, the King's Course at the Mid South Club.

Mid South is a great example of Arnold Palmer drawing on his accumulated knowledge and pulling the stops out to design a layout that is both visually exciting, challenging and great fun to play.

The front-nine gets off to a terrific start, especially as you take on the downhill, water-carry tee shot at the par-4 2nd. You then move into a partly-open, partly-wooded loop of holes that eventually returns to the clubhouse via a marvellous risk-reward par-5 9th, and a double-green shared with the 18th.

This excellent front-nine is full of dramatic and thought-provoking holes characterised by splendid undulation changes, boulder-lined water hazards, excellent bunkering and two great par-3s.

The start of the back-nine sees the water and undulation changes of the front-nine replaced by significant bunkering and large sandy waste areas, not least at the par-3 11th and par-4 14th. Three long and flattish consecutive par-4's (starting with the 12th), don't provide much of a breather, before the closing stretch brings undulations and water back into play, most dangerously at the par-4 16th.

Throughout, the good-width fairways are lined with tall pines, though never too densely. The greens will thoroughly test your putting - often large, invariably sloping and undeniably fast. A small amount of real estate makes a little impact on the naturalness of this course and its surroundings.

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.
