Robert Trent Jones Course at Palmetto Dunes: Contrasts and variety are in store as you set out onto the very enjoyable Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront course at Palmetto Dunes. From the green of the 10th hole and the 11th tee-box you can enjoy views directly onto the Atlantic Ocean. For some of the front-nine you play alongside Hilton Head's main highway (the 278). In keeping with the rest of the course, these roadside holes are well-laid out and the road is not overly intrusive (although passing traffic maybe at risk from seriously hooked tee shots, at least on one or two holes). The more interesting and some might say more challenging back-nine is played alongside (and at times across) a wide lagoon, where the fairways are generally a good-width, even if things appear a bit taunting from the tee. One of Hilton Head's most popular venues, and rightly so.

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.
