How To Find Golf Courses Near You

By: Golfshake Editor | Wed 03 Jul 2024

At Golfshake, you can gain access to all the latest news from the professional tours, in addition to equipment reviews from the newest pieces of tech.

You can also gain access to golf course and product reviews too. However, did you also know that Golfshake is one of the largest directories for recreational golf?

Golfshake has several useful tools to help you plan where to play golf – and which courses are the best for enjoyment, value, hospitality and a whole heap more.

Golfshake can also provide information such as golf courses near you or even offer suggestions of finding somewhere different to play.  To get started simply access the Golf Course section and start searching, or read on for more of the great features and functionality available including our wealth of Golf Travel Guides and suggestions on where to visit.

Regional Lists

With so many golf courses around the world, it can be quite difficult to determine what golf course to visit next… but the Golfshake Course section is here to help.

Over the years, Golfshake has accumulated thousands of independent golf course reviews allowing us to create, adapt and ehance a variety of regional lists, top 100s, course lists and must play features – making it easier to find golf courses near you and venues that you should visit.

For golfers looking to visit the home of golf and plan a trip or golf break to Scotland, you could access our Top 100 Golf Courses in Scotland for ideas.

This isn’t exclusive to the British Isles either, as Golfshake has curated a list of the Top 100 Golf Courses in Portugal, France and other notable foreign destinations to help you find new golf courses.

If you ever find yourself stressed about what areas of the country to target for a golf trip – or you’re on a committed hunt for the ultimate hidden gem – Golfshake’s database can assist you greatly.

You can access Golfshake’s full Top 100 Golf Course listings here, with regional listings noted below.

Golf Travel Guides

As well as the various lists and editorial features hosted on Golfshake you will also find several in-depth golf travel guides to help you plan your next trip outside your own country. With detailed information on what to expect, the types of courses, places to stay, local need to know, weather information and travel details, these serve as providing the ultimite guide for your next golf break.

Popular locations include The Algarve in Portugal, many of the popular Spanish golf destinations and some of the emerging golf locations around the world including Abu Dhabi and Turkey.

On top of the valuable information you may need to help plan a golf trip you will also find a detailed map of the golf courses in the region and many of the Golfshake editorial articles providing further insights into why to vist as well as in-depth golf course reviews and resort guides.

Course Reviews

The excitement of visiting a new course will never cease and it’s often a reason why you spend the night before frantically scouring the web for reviews of the facility.

There is no bigger disappointment than feeling dissatisfied with a golf course, which is why you should always check out Golfshake course reviews before visiting.

They typically come in two packages; either a Golfshake ambassador has had the honour of playing the course, or you can read reviews from golfers just like yourself.

Matt Holbrook, a veteran Golfshake ambassador, visited Dundonald Links and you can read all about his experience.

However, as you can imagine, Golfshake has not quite managed to send out an ambassador for every UK-based golf course just yet…

This is where you come in to play by providing opinion for a club’s Golfshake Guide, which will host all the information needed before you visit.

Each Golfshake Guide provides a scoring system for several categories, and some of these include: The Course, Course Conditions, Value for Money, Pace of Play, Food & Drink, Practice Facilities and Hospitality ratings amongst other useful information.

Those who have experienced the golf course will submit their scores and a written review alongside it, which provides invaluable feedback to the golfing community and helps golfers find where to play next.

Ultimately, not everyone is a scratch golfer and reading reviews from fellow mid-handicappers provides greater insight than a talented YouTube creator ripping up the course.

This is the Golfshake Golf Guide for The Belfry. As you can now see, they provide information around everything that is relevant for your visit – which comes directly from the community!

Interactive Golf Course Map

That isn’t the limit to Golfshake’s services however, as the Interactive Golf Course Map is another useful tool that you may not know we offer.

If you’ve ever wondered: “what golf courses are near me?”, then Golfshake’s Interactive Golf Course Search can provide that information whether you’re at home or playing away.

Simply enter your location and the database will pop up with all the local clubs to your current position – making it incredibly easy to find golf courses near you.

There is plenty of customisation too, as you can alter the price range of the map and look for specific ratings from the Golfshake database.

Furthermore, you can specifically search for courses that are society-friendly, offer society deals, clubs with seven-day memberships, five-day memberships, if buggies are available, if a course has a range and many, many, many other things.

Not all golf clubs list the services and facilities they offer, which is why Golfshake’s Interactive Golf Course Map can really benefit you in finding where to play next.

Online Tee Time Search

All you’ll need to do is head to our Online Tee Time Search page and enter your location or postcode to find clubs or golf courses near you. As a neat little extra, you’ll be able to filter the distance from five, 10 and 15 miles, whilst also searching for a specific day.

Discovering available tee times providing by leading tee time provider Golfnow has never been easier.


Whether you’re looking for your next golfing retreat, want to find golf courses near you or you’re on the hunt for tee times, Golfshake is the one-stop destination for all of the above.
