Did you know?

The City of Portsmouth's challenging Bide-A-Wee Golf Course was a vision conceived by PGA professional Chandler Harper in the early 1950s. After playing in the Ryder Cup matches of 1955, Harper retired from competitive golf and hired Fred Findlay to build the new golf course in Portsmouth. Findlay is attributed with suggesting the name of the course, which in Scottish means "stay a little longer, or linger awhile." After 37 years of managing Bide-A-Wee, Chandler Harper retired in the early 1990s, at which time the City of Portsmouth decided to fully renovate the course.

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...
