Forest Dunes Golf Club

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 2002

Forest Dunes Golf Club: Regularly listed amongst America's 100 greatest public courses, this superb Tom Weiskopf layout has recently been joined by a companion course - and no ordinary companion at that. The newcomer, known as The Loop, is Tom Doak's 18-hole "reversible" layout, offering the Black course when played in a clockwise direction, and Red course when played anticlockwise.

Suffice to say the original Forest Dunes layout (not reversible) more than holds its own against the newcomer. Weiskopf's skilful crafting ensures this excellent tree-lined and open parkland layout offers a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play. Undoubtedly one of Michigan's very best Stay&Play golf venues.

Stay&Play: onsite accommodation is available in cottages, villas and the Lake AuSable Lodge (see Where2Stay section below).

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)

Here at Prince’s Golf Club you'll find 27 excellent holes of links golf. Just over the fence and sharing similar terrain is Royal St George’s; but Prince’s is far from overshadowed by its venerable neighbour. The three nine-hole loops at Prince's, laid out over gently undulating terrain, are sure to bring a smile of satisfaction to all lovers of links golf.

Stay&Play at Prince's: excellent onsite Lodge accommodation available
