One of the greatest courses in the world, its lineage is unprecedented among golfers. All the big names have played there, and if you are going to tackle the behemoth of the bunkers, the two most famous courses include the 10-ft Deep Hell bunker on the 14th and the Road Bunker at number 17.
But if you are truly going to make your mark on this golf resort, it is this one. Full of history, Donald Ross, famed golf course designer, started his career by being an apprentice to Old Tom Morris at St Andrew’s in Scotland around 1899, and you can sense the history all around you when you tee off.
Pebble Beach is one of the great bucket trip lists. The Pebble Beach resort has an abundance of great courses for those with gusto, but the reimagined short course experience guarantees that you can make the most of tee time and get back to the restaurant in time for its award-winning cuisine.
Another Scottish golf course akin to the Spirit of Scotland’s ancient links. A wonderful place for players to immerse themselves in the beautiful landscapes and courses, not to mention the Bandon Trails, giving you a beautiful sight of ocean vistas and rolling dunes.

Undoubtedly one of the best golf trips out there. It’s best venturing to the Roman Road course, created by famed designer Robert Trent Jones, to get yourself under the skin of one of the dark horses of golf courses.
