What our panellists said:

DC: Without doubt still my favourite links course – it has the best views and I use every single club every time I play this course.

AC: Hugely exciting that the long- awaited changes to the 9th (plus 10th and 11th) seem to be happening. Could be best three-hole stretch in golf.

CC: Great views and much more.

DJ: One of those courses you’d choose if you could only pick one for the rest of your life.

SA: Beautiful property, but very few holes of distinction.

LS: Being improved in grasses and design but needs more of Trump’s money to get to the very top.

DW: The best course in Scotland.

KE: Just beautiful. The turn with the lighthouse could be the finest place of any places anywhere. Certainly within golf.

Commentary: Surely the most spectacular place to play in our list.
