Birdwood Golf Course at Boar's Head Resort

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

Est. 1984

The Birdwood Golf Course at Boar's Head Resort is a wonderfully natural and pleasantly testing layout, which benefitted from a complete redesign in 2019. The new Love Design layout should not disappoint, with many attractive features and 18 excellent holes to enjoy.

The new layout utilises the existing clubhouse while still also passing by the historic Birdwood Mansion. The new routing, which flows through valleys, over ridges, and across creeks, opened up wonderful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Stay&Play at Boar's Head Resort: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

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.

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.
