Golf course with a view

One of the many fantastic things about golfing is being in nature, surrounded by rolling greens but some golf courses across the world take their views to a whole new level. From South Africa to Canada, we bring you some of our favourite golf courses with a view.

One of the world's greatest and arguably one of the most famous golf courses, Cypress Point boasts impressive views of varied landscapes, including the Del Monte Forest, sweeping dunes, rugged coastline, and rolling waves. Cypress Point features a 18-hole golf course that opened in 1928 by Alister MacKenzie.

Banff Springs, Canada

 Banff Springs

Located within the Canadian Rockies and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Naff National Park, Banff Springs Golf Course is one of the most beautiful courses, unique and filled with nature contrasts. Surrounded by tall trees, vast mountains and the Bow River, the 4th hole, the Devil's Caldron, is often chosen as the favourite spot on the course.

 

Lofoten Links, Norway

 Lofoten Links

On many golfers bucket list golf courses to visit, this is one of the very best in Scandinavia. Loften Links is located on a remote Norwegian Island called Gimsøya and although it is not easy to get to, everyone agrees it is well worth it once you step onto the island and see the  Nordic beauty all around you. Imagine snow-capped mountains and sprawling white snow-covered beaches. Not only is the surrounding nature beautiful, but the course is impressive as well. Brilliantly designed, the course delivers a firm but fair challenge to any golfer with a latitude of 68 degrees north, a perfect time to visit is midsummer if you want to make the most of the constant light; you can play 24 hours a day.

 

Legend Golf Course, South Africa

 Legends Golf Club

The Legend Golf Course is in Entabeni in South Africa, and interestingly it was designed by 18 different golfers who each had a hole to design themselves. It is most famous for its 631m long par-3 extreme 19th hole. The tee shot is played right at the top of Hanglip Mountain, straight on down to the green, which is in the shape of Africa itself. This 18-hole championship course is over 7,700 metres off the back tees, making it one of the world's most comprehensive and most extreme golf courses. Are you up for the challenge?

 

Pebble Beach Golf Links, California, USA

 Pebble Beach

Known across the globe, especially from being used in the US Opens, Pebble Beach is on Monterey Peninsula and is a bucket list course for many. Also famous for Pebble Beach Pro-Ams and the old Tiger Woods PGA Tour games, this renowned course opened in 1919. It has played host to six US Open Championships, the most recent being 2019. Its signature holes include the short downhill par-3 7th, the difficult par-3 17th and the famous par-5 finishing hole, which corners left around the stark rock face and the Pacific Ocean. Other areas of beauty are the holes that run along Stillwater Cove, with some fantastic scenery to be had at this legendary golf course.

 

 

Wolf Creek, Nevada, USA

Wolf Creek Las VegasFeatured in a whole host of video games, this famous course is in Mesquite, which is about an hour's drive from the bright lights of Las Vegas. Wolf Creek needs to be seen to be believed with its breathtaking scenery with holes carved onto the desert canyons with considerable changes in elevation and water features. Every hole meets with jaw-dropping scenery and some of the most spectacular tracks you will ever find. A course to make all your golfing friends jealous.
 

 

Cape Kidnappers, New Zealand

 Cape Kidnappers

Opened in 2004, the course looks like it has always been there with the holes playing alongside thin, jagged edges of 'cliff fingers'. Players can walk right up to the edge and look down from 140 metres above sea level into the deepest blue sea. Hands-down one of the most photographed courses globally, this really is a golfer's dream course.
 

Loch Lomond, Scotland

 Loch Lomond

This former Scottish Open venue, Loch Lomond, must be one of the most beautiful courses and one of the UK's most exclusive and prestigious golf courses. Sitting on the edge of the glorious Loch Lomond, this championship golf course is always maintained to the highest level. It features breathtaking views of both the loch and the surrounding mountains. As we mentioned, the club is exclusive, so sadly, most of us golfers won't get the opportunity to play there.
