Top 5 places to play golf in the world

Gorgeous natural surroundings, rolling hills and green as far as your eye can see…for golf lovers, not much could beat getting to putt and pitch on a fabulous golf course in an exciting new destination. Here’s our pick of 5 golf courses around the world that will take your breath away…

St. Andrews, Scotland
What golfer wouldn’t want to play at the most famous course in the world? The Old Course at St. Andrews has been in action since the 15th century and is challenging for even the best. There are other excellent 18-hole courses, one 9-hole course, and a practice centre to cater for all skills levels. All are public, but reservations are a must.

Pebble Beach, USA
Pebble Beach Golf Links may be the best known course in the US. This part of California’s Pacific coast boasts crashing waves and amazing views, especially at the 18th hole. Be sure to select the proper club to tackle the wind that can sometimes be a factor.

Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, Dubai, UAE
Dubai might not be the first place you think of to play golf, but it should be. Like much else here, Dubai knows how to do it bigger. The spectacular 18th hole overlooks the Dubai Creek along the left and a second shot over a lake to a green set in front of the architectural marvel of a clubhouse; this must be one of the most breath-taking courses in the Middle East.

Legend Golf Resort, South Africa
Could you tee off from a mountain onto the green 400m below? We are proud to have some amazing golf courses right here in South Africa, and this is a one-of-a-kind. The world famous Par 3, the extreme 19th, is set high up on the Hanglip Mountain, and can only be reached by helicopter. It’s also a “world-in-one” Signature Course where each of the 18 holes has been designed by a world golfing legend.

Le Touessrok Golf Course, Mauritius
If a game of golf is your idea of paradise, just wait until you see Le Touessrok Golf Course near the capital Port Louis in Mauritius. This Bernhard Langer designed 18-hole course on its own island, with its endless views of the Indian Ocean, will feature on many golf bucket lists.
