The latest issue of Golf Monthly features recommendations for less well-known courses that impress, delight and inspire. Written by Rob Smith, a incredibly well travelled golfer, who has played almost all Top 200 Courses in the UK and Ireland and over 700 courses in total. With all the latest tour news, reviews, buyers guides and tuition, Golf Monthly is always a great read and is complemented by golfmonthly.com, a remarkably expansive website for players of all abilities. An extract from the Unexpected Treasures feature is below although it is always worth picking-up a copy on the newsstands or visiting the website. We’re delighted that Rob considers Hopwood to be “an excellent alternative to Lancashire’s historic links” and enjoyed reading about his other recommendations including Perranporth and The Glen.
