Links Magazine’s Spectacular 10

by MHAIRI on MARCH 17, 2011

Links Magazine recently published its list of the top 10 most spectacular courses in world golf; and it makes for interesting reading with Old Head Golf Links in Ireland finishing in top position.  Located just south of Cork, Old Head stands on cliff tops in a remote location that’ll make you feel like you’re on the edge of the world.  Another notable course on the list is Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in Lijiang, China which is an 8,500 yard course built 3000 feet above sea level.  I had the pleasure of playing it in 2008 and, whilst it’s the longest course I’ve ever played (by some distance), the altitude meant I’ve never hit drives so far in my life…which made for great fun!   The top ten as positioned by Links Magazine is:

  1. Old Head Golf Links, Ireland

  2. Cypress Point Club, California

  3. Cape Kidnappers, New Zealand

  4. Black Mesa Golf Club, New Mexico

  5. Pebble Beach Golf Links, California

  6. Whistling Straits, Wisconsin

  7. Weihai Point, China

  8. Pinnacle Point, South Africa

  9. Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, China

  10. Cabo Del Sol, Mexico
