England

Golfshake Review comment: “A challenging course which is very well maintained. Outstanding backdrop and views, very fair layout, stay on the fairways and a good score is possible, the rough is a real hazard.”

Comment from Golfshake Review: “I cannot recommend it highly enough. But be warned, this is not an easy course. Some very challenging holes due to the hilly fairways. But don’t let that put you off as the course is a joy to play. Thanks again Tankersley and I hope you play again in the near future.”

Comment from Golfshake Review: “This is my second time playing Woldingham and enjoying it so much the second time, it was surprisingly green considering the summer and will probably benefit from recent rain and a narrower fairway cut.”

Surrey National

Golfshake reviewer comment: “Nice layout with clever bunker positions. Played in the summer to roll the ball a long distance, often downhill away from where you wanted it. So strategy off the tee was very important.”

Golfshake Review comment: “Played in April 2022, firm fairways for the time of year, nice feeling to hit the irons. Green runs are severe but luckily still not full speed. I can see that it’s the main defense of the course. The rough was also down, not sure I’d like to play here in the hot and baked summer! Or maybe I do?

North Ireland

Ardglass Golf Club

Golfshake Review commented: “Ardglass was a great experience. The pro shop was very welcoming and helpful, caddies are available if you want one but we didn’t find this necessary after purchasing the course guide. The course is typical links, punishing if you are not straight, a few unlucky rebounds and stray balls if you go too wide Every aspect of the course was in excellent condition Practice facilities are limited to short game and a net. If you are near this course, play it!”
