Banchory Golf Club: Heading west into the Scottish Highlands from Aberdeen, you'll travel for many miles through an area known as Royal Deeside, with the famous River Dee always close by. Read more...
The Royal Sydney Golf Club: The Royal Sydney Golf Club: Exuding all the pomp and character that's reflected in its Royal status, RSGC's Championship course presents a demanding test of golf in very pleasant surroundings. The clubhouse is a fabulously large, almost fortress-like building; the course itself a delight to play and always immaculately presented.
