My bucket list golf courses I’ve never played

We all have a list of golf courses we've never played that we'd like to get to. Alex Perry has narrowed his down to five
 

I’m like every other golfer in the country right now, gazing out the window at the bright blue early May skies and dreaming of a simpler time when I was actually allowed to step onto a tee. So I’ve been wading through NCG’s expertly put together Top 100 rankings to piece together my bucket list golf courses. There is only one rule: I can’t have played them before.

Let’s get cracking. We’ll start in my homeland…

My bucket list golf courses: Thurlestone

Thurlestone golf course review

I’ve played plenty of golf in West and North Devon, where I fine-tuned my 14-handicap, but I need to go and tick off a few on the other side of Dartmoor from my hometown.

Top of the list is Thurlestone. The first two paragraphs of our review include the phrases “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”, “quintessential Devon scenery” and “breathtaking views”. That’s enough for me, where do I sign?

Add to this trip: East Devon, Bovey Castle, Yelverton and Teignmouth. And if the stars align maybe I can catch a home game at my beloved Torquay United.

Head to the next page where we venture a little further south…
