    Id love to play anything in Northern Ireland!

  •  

    Just played at the best course in Scotland... yes the Old, Carnoustie and Royal Dornoch are wonderful, but for a true experience you have to go north of Dornoch and play Brora. Ask for Morris and don't mind the sheep...... old fashion links at its best.

    Coming from England, I'd love to play any of the historical clubs in the States.

    Maybe........ Oakmont, Pinehurst No2, Riviera, Medina.

    I'd also like to play at TPC Sawgrass. The best PGA tournement all year is the Players Championship.

    I had the pleasure of playing Finca Cortesin in south Spain, it was in great condition, hospitality was through the roof, I hoofed it and they delivered me a bag of fruit and some water on the 7th hole. Northern views were of the mountains and southern views of the Mediteranean. Only downside (I'm picky) is the range was small and you could only hit irons, anything longer could carry into the golf course.

    I don't understand why more golfers don't travel to south Spain, San Roque, Sotogrande, Valderama, Finca Cortesin the list goes on...

    St. Andrews is a "must" because of the tradition but Turnberry from a visual  sense was terrific. We've played Lahinch,Waterville,Ballybunion and Doonbeg In Ireland and were wowed by Ballybunion and Doonebeg because of the great terrain along the ocean. If you play Doonebeg bring you most comfortable Foot Joys because there is a lot of walking between holes.

    One year we were adventurous and got a great off season(November) package for 

    St.Andrews,Carnoustie and Turnberry. We came prepared with thermals and rainsuits and were fortunate to have reasonable weather(no worse than Nov. here in New England). The courses were so empty that we were able to take our cameras and walk the courses again when we finished our rounds.

    I favor the White Witch. A Rose Hall golf course in Jamaica. Best views I've ever seen on a course to date, and quite a challenge as well. If your going to play there all I have to say is "you better hit the fairway" there is very little rough, and anything more than 10 feet either side and you lost that ball.
