According to the statistics of Golf Digest magazine, there are more than 35,000 golf courses in the world. We bring to your attention the best golf courses to visit with your girlfriend.

1.     Muirfield, Edinburgh

The first position belongs to the Scottish Muirfield. There are many nice golf courses in Scotland. Edinburgh has one of the oldest courses, hosting many international tournaments. The famous J. Nicklaus made his debut here. The length of the field is 6,590 meters. Playing on this course is not cheap. For one round, you need to pay about $300. By paying two at once, you can save money. When the high season ends and there are fewer golfers, the price is reduced by 50%. 

2.     Teeth of the Dog, Dominican Republic

Teeth of the Dog was opened to play in 1971. It took Pete Dye over two years to transform the Dominican Republic’s usual coral coastline into one of the finest and most impressive golf courses in the world. The mild tropical climate and beautiful seascapes make playing on this high-class course a real pleasure. Seven out of 18 holes on Teeth of the Dog are set along the seafront, so get ready to battle not only your rivals but also the shifting Caribbean breeze.

3.     Leopard Creek Country Club, South Africa

Are golf and safari two incompatible things? If this exoticism doesn’t scare you, then the golf course at Leopard Creek Country Club is made for you. The golf course, located in the southern part of the Kruger National Park, was opened in 1996, and in 2007-2009, it became the site of the Alfred Dunhill Championship. Gary Player, an architect at Leopard Creek Country Club, wrote: “While playing golf at Leopard Creek Country Club, you may hear hippos snorting or see a lion walking up to a fence. It’s incredible.”

4.     St. Andrews Links, Scotland

Compared to the previous course in Scotland, prices at St. Andrews Links are quite moderate: from $120 per round. According to experts, this course is an example of perfect design. Some elements, for example, a forged bunker or a stone nine-meter bridge in the form of an arch are familiar to all golf lovers. The length of the field is 6656 meters with 72 holes. The last update was in 2015 when it hosted the British Open Championship. Any amateur can play on this course. So, visit and find the one who will gladly play golf with you.
