Did you know?

Poplar Grove's original brick-built plantation home (now the clubhouse) dates back to 1773. An adjoining log cabin is even older, dating back to 1730. | Seven-time major champion Sam Snead rarely got involved in golf course design. Until Poplar Grove there were no "Sam Snead designs" in the golfing world. However, in 2002 he and his son Jack became involved in a project that was targetted at creating an eventual Sam Snead Golf Trail. They worked with Ed Carton, originally of Tom Fazio's design business, and drew-up the plans for Poplar Grove. The course opened for play in 2004, well after Sam Snead's death in May 2002.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
