2-FORE!-1 Six of the Best

Published:

Looking to start the new season in style? Then you'll struggle to beat these six belters, a mix of stunning inland and dramatic coastal layouts. Oh, and they're all in 2-FORE!-1 so are an absolute bargain to play...

*Thorpe Wood, Cambs - This pleasant, challenging and gently undulating Peterborough Peter Alliss/Dave Thomas parkland is one of the country’s best pay-and-plays and boasts a smashing new driving range.

*Sidmouth, Devon - A demanding but delightful par-66 which makes the most of the natural contours of the wooded slopes of the Sid Valley.

*Broome Park, Kent - 1981 Donald Steel parkland layout set within the magnificent 268-acres Broome Park Estate established during the reign of Charles I and finishing with a breathtaking par-5.

*Darlington, Co. Durham - With its big rolling greens and lush densely tree-lined fairways, delightful Darlington is something of an Augusta lookalike. Then again, it was - like the Masters venue - designed by Alister Mackenzie.

*Royal Tarlair, Aberdeenshire - A dramatic clifftop/parkland course in Macduff in north east Scotland with most of the drama provided by the sensational par-3 13th known as ‘Clivet.’ It’s worth the green fee alone.

*Holyhead, Anglesey, Wales - On the short side but James Braid’s 1912 layout still provides great heathland golf – the fairways are tight and undulating - with awesome coastal views.
