Every golf course around the world has one thing in common – they are all unique. Golf provides a different experience wherever you go. No two courses are ever the same and each has their own captivating story to tell. Blessed with a rich and varied landscape, England has a prolific collection of coastal links and inland courses created by some of golf’s most cherished craftsmen; Sunningdale (Park Jr. & Holt), Walton Heath (Fowler), St Enodoc (Braid), Alwoodley and Moortown (MacKenzie) to name just a few. This guide offers a golfer everything they would require to enjoy a great round of golf at the best courses England has to offer. All the information you need is right here - par scores, yardage, green-fee price indicators, booking procedure, history of each club and how best to play the course. England is where golf’s greatest artists have gifted us moments to treasure for eternity. A young Ballesteros lifting the claret jug at Royal Lytham & St Annes, Bobby Jones storming to victory at Hoylake on his way to the grand slam, and who can ever forget Nicklaus and Jacklin bringing their titanic Ryder Cup battle to a close with a famous handshake at Royal Birkdale. Sharing a border with its spiritual home, England is undoubtedly golf's exquisite front garden.
