What does it mean to have the perfect golf course?


Idealists are drawn to golf in search of the ‘perfect’ round, and that includes a perfect area in which to play it, but what makes a perfect golf course? The natural landscape8th A rural golf course starts with a natural landscape, and the best courses retain many features of the environment. The manicured look of the fairway should contrast with the wilder nature of the surrounding trees, grasses, flowers and wetlands.   10thFavourite holes Many golfers who have played on a number of courses have their favourite holes, so their idea of the perfect golf course consists of 18 holes to their liking. To a professional golfer, a hole should be a challenge, but the amateur may be more concerned with golf being fun. This means that the perfect golf course for the professional may be different to that of the amateur. To the professional player, the more difficult part of a hole is near the green, so they aren’t overly concerned about the length of the hole. The green needs to have undulations so that it is not completely flat, meaning that shots on the green present a real challenge.   The atmosphere and amenities A golf course should be a friendly and welcoming environment. Whether the main building is 17tha clubhouse or hotel, it should feature scenic windows looking out over the course. There needs to be attentive staff, superb food and relaxing places to drink. After a round of golf, especially in the inclement English weather, a course needs to provide the perfect place to wind down and socialise. The perfect golf course may not yet exist, but there are many excellent golf courses in the United Kingdom. Why not check out the one at Hallmark Hotel The Welcombe, Stratford upon Avon?
