One of relatively few, true parkland courses in our Top 100, this sumptuous and colourful course is often likened to Augusta and is as pretty as they come. Inviting fairways and soft greens mean that this is as close to target golf as you will find on our list. Avoid the plentiful water hazards and you certainly have the potential to score well.

Panellists’ comments: “Several spectacular back nine holes to really test your mettle”; “Island-green 17th lives long in the memory”
