This classic heathland keeps getting better; continued forestry management has helped create greater airflow and improve turf – all with the added bonus of promoting its traditional characteristics.

82 Enniscrone

Returned to the Top 100 two years ago and was never in any danger of losing its place.

83 Aberdovey

There are always small tweaks going on at Aberdovey and in the last year they have redesigned approaches to the 2nd green as well as extended tees on the 6th and 12th holes.

85 Southerness

Southerness remains exactly as it was two years ago; a rugged, traditional links which asks you to hit consistently good shots in order to maintain a tidy scorecard.

This mini Gleneagles has put in a new 14th tee since our last listing – gaining the hole as much as 25 yards – while the 17th tee has been raised slightly, aiding the views.
