The West Lancashire Golf Club, Merseyside

Golfshake Rating: 4.86

Prince’s Golf Club, Kent

Golfshake Rating: 4.71

Review Comment: “The greens and fairways are immaculate; the best thing with this course was the lack of hills, so easier to walk. The fairways are tight but that just makes you think a bit more about where to place the ball.”

Sapey Golf & Country Club, Worcestershire

Golfshake Rating: 4.67

Review Comment: “I was expecting to struggle to break 100 as it was the first time I’d played here playing off 23 but managed 91 so I’m well pleased. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were all excellent - the clubhouse is phenomenal.”

Harleyford Golf Club, Buckinghamshire

Golfshake Rating: 4.43

Review Comment: “Harleyford never disappoints. The course is playing extremely well and it is always in great condition. If you have not played here before, what are you waiting for?!”
