A colleague of mine was once asked «what is it like to be a golf writer?»
«It is better than having to work,» he replied.
Whether or not he had a point, shall be unsaid. However, there are certain things that go with the profession that I have no problem admitting is advantageous for those of us that are golf nuts.
One is that you get to see a lot of golf courses. Not all of them with your own eyes, though, but seen through the lens of some top photographer.
Underneath I have put together a collection of the 10 prettiest golf courses I have laid eyes on. Some of them I’ve played, some I’ve seen for real and also walked without my golf sticks and some I only know from the images that have been forwarded to me.
Just outside Nairn in the Highlands. The new home of the Scottish Open and one of the prettiest courses on the prettiest site there is for golf.
If I had to play only one course for the rest of my life, this would be the one. The only true links in Africa and one of only 246 true links courses in the world according to the Links Association. This is the approach to the 18th.
Along the Atlantic Ocean an hour North of Lisbon, : Praia D’El Rey is one of the most scenic courses I’ve ever seen.
For two months of the year you can play this true links course in sunshine 24 hours a day. The sun will never dip below the horizon, making this Norwegian entry to the Links Association’s list of true links courses a must for every golfing purist.
