The 10 Best Golf Courses the World Has to Offer

If you’re a golf enthusiast who loves to travel, then you’ll want to know what the whole world has to offer in terms of great courses worth a visit. Whether you love the thrill of competition, the chance to hone your skills in a scenic environment, or just the interest of seeing courses you’ve never been to before, here’s a list of possible places to interest you.

 

We’ll start with Scotland. Turnberry in Ayrshire is a course with a cliff edge sea view with waves breaking onto the rocks below. Certainly worth a look. A golf umbrella is likely to be helpful here, so you don’t have to be a fair weather player.

Slightly further afield, Royal County Down in Northern Ireland has been described by a former top golfer as the best course he’s ever played. Views across the Irish Sea and the Morne Mountains mean you’ll feel like a champion whatever the score.

In the South West of Ireland, try Doonbeg. This is a newer course designed by golf icon Greg Norman just six or seven years ago.

Right across the other side of the world, the Royal Melbourne course in Australia has some deep bunkers, and it takes a good player to manage a decent score.

While you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, consider the imaginatively named Cape Kidnappers in New Zealand. Here’s a course with plenty of drama and tension, with many balls falling over the long drop into the sea, so bring plenty!

For a Stateside course, how about Pebble Beach, California. You’ll be playing by the side of the Pacific, and the views here are truly panoramic. Several tricky water hazards single this one out from the rest.

How about Barbados? The Green Monkey golf course actually has a monkey shaped island along the way. Also, a deep quarry. Not for the faint hearted.

Another intriguing animal name is Leopard Creek in South Africa, where you could meet some of the most exotic safari animals in between holes, including crocodiles and baboons.

You might not need your golf umbrella if you come to Domaine de Sperone, Corsica, which boasts beautiful views over the Mediterranean Sea.

And finally, Canouan, in The Grenadines, which is located on the side of a volcano. In the event of an eruption, a golf umbrella isn’t likely to be much help, but fortunately it’s extinct anyway.
