Top 3 things that make a golf course perfect

1. The landscape

The Welcombe Hotel - Exterior - Golf course fountainThe best rural golf courses retain many elements of their natural surroundings. The trimmed fairways contrast with the natural features; trees, flowers, long grass, and wetland areas.

2. The holes

Most golfers who regularly play at one course have a favourite hole. A professional golfer will probably judge a hole differently to an amateur. The professional is looking for a challenge, so The Welcombe Hotel - Exterior - Golf - Modelwould choose a difficult hole. An amateur golfer playing for fun, meanwhile, might not relish a hole that is too difficult and frustrating. The perfect golf course green should not be absolutely flat, as this makes it too easy to putt. Ridges and furrows make the green more interesting to play. A golfer’s dream golf course would have 18 of their favourite holes.

3. The amenities

AThe Welcombe Hotel - Bar - Day - Afternoon Teafter a round of golf, there needs to be great amenities with attentive staff and superb food. The best amenities feature peaceful lounges that overlook the course or natural landscapes. The facilities should be the perfect place to relax and socialise after a round of golf. The perfect golf course may not have been built yet, but for a superb round of golf in great natural surroundings and excellent amenities, visit a Hallmark Hotel golf course.
