Genoa
Italy

This 18-hole course is open year 'round and closed on Wednesdays.

Rapallo Golf Club
Rapallo Golf Club is one of the oldest courses in Italy, located in the hills of the Italian Riviera. This is an 18-hole, par 70, 5,639-yard course. This course, just 800 meters from the town center, is laid out in century-old parkland surrounded by thousands of trees including cedars and cypresses and pines. The first hole borders on the entrance road to the town; a very tight starting point affected by the foliage of the age-old trees that flank it makes the golfer immediately aware that this is a demanding course for good players. Your drive must never fade in the frequent tee-shots for which you must loft your ball to pass over the Boate river that affects various holes (also as second shot to the green!). In this first part of the course, the player must "go round" without forcing his shots and fight off any psychological pressure that could induce errors. The second hole is unusual; it crosses the practice course; remember to ring the bell to avoid intersecting someone else's shot. The course has a second part towards a park: wonderful tee-shots from above towards the distant fairway. It's exciting to see that tiny white dot placed at the center of the fairway, watching from the top of a hill. In this high part, the course opens out. Difficult bunkers due to their width and depth defend the greens with different levels of inclination. The view is an important companion during the game! Breathtaking and stimulating, as at the 18th hole, another par 4 to cross the river. The green is close to the patio of the Club House and those eating and drinking will have a chance to appreciate, we hope, your good end of course performance!

United Kingdom

Muara
Brunei

Royal Brunei Golf & Country Club
This club is considered amongst the top courses in Asia, and possibly the most unique golfing venue in the world.

It is certainly the most dramatic and challenging course in Brunei. It is consistently maintained to the high standards demanded by the USA PGA, and his majesty. The specially designed drainage system guarantees year round play, and the greens are fast. It's common to spot a troupe of monkeys taking a leisurely sojourn across the fairway, or to see a majestic Brahminy kite soar searching for prey, or to hear the distinct call of Borneo's hornbill. This is an 18 hole, par 72 course with a slope rating of 120.

Mumbai
(Bombay)
India

Bombay Presidency Golf Club
The 110-acre Bombay Presidency Golf Club at Chembur is a green haven in an otherwise urban environment. Founded in 1827, the par 70, 18 hole course was redesigned by Peter Thompson to international standards. Presidency's fairways are narrow and tight, but its greens are undoubtedly the best in the country. The real test at Presidency, however, is the variable and shifting sea breeze, which could fox even the most experienced player. It is not a difficult course; it's not too long, not too narrow, and yet not an easy course to break par. The fifth hole is one of the most challenging on this course: a 480-yard, par five, a dog leg to the right, with a fairway trap strategically placed to catch the long hitter trying to cut the corner. The drive on this has to be placed carefully. If too long and pulled, it would end up in deep trouble. With a well placed drive around the fairway bun-the two overhanging trees on the right, is a comfortable par five. The 416 yard, par four 11th hole is also a test of precision golfing. The player has to steer his drive through trees overhanging on either side, a short distance from the tee. The fairly tight fairway has thick scrub and trees on the left, a water hazard and an out-of-bounds on the right with perhaps the trickiest and fastest green of this course. With the pin placed towards the left edge, the approach would roll off into the thick roughs, and not even a miracle would allow a par. Of the par threes, the 17th hole is the longest at 218 yards. The green is deceptive with deep bunkers on either side, and the rippled fairway can make a loose tee shot veer sharply.

Oporto
Portugal

Oporto Golf Course
Established in 1890, it is, after Pau, in France, the second oldest course in Continental Europe. Tradition is the best word to describe the club, perhaps because it was established by British residents of Porto.

Palma de
Mallorca
Spain

Son Vida Club de Golf
Son Vida golf course, one of the most attractive and well-known 18-hole golf courses on Mallorca, is currently undergoing an intensive renovation. The course will remain closed until the renovation is finished at the end of January 2002. Responsible for the project is the renowned golf course designer Kurt Rossknecht. The aim has been to retain the original design of the course and enhance it even further. You can look forward to newly designed greens, prepared with A4-seed, a first class type of turf found in only very few golf courses in Europe. It promises very fast greens. Another challenge will be the new ponds- for example hole 18, where you will now have to play your shot across water. The quality of the soil has been greatly improved by adding another layer of humus and removing large parts of the sandy underground. Fairways have been sown with Bermuda grass "Savannah", which in its present form has only been on the market for a very short time. All tees have of course been greatly improved. Son Vida will also be ideal for the less experienced golfer, as the renovation will create a challenging but fair environment. Redesigned bunkers, new bunkers in strategically important spots and the lowering of fairways 13 and 18 as well as green 12 will enable a challenging yet the same time achievable game of golf. Son Vida will be at the cutting edge of technology, with a state-of-the art sprinkler system allowing to control each sprinkler individually and guaranteeing an environmentally friendly operation by using regenerated wastewater only. The entire golf course will be accessible by golf kart, as all the driveways along the fairways have been widened.

Such discipline is never easy, but you will be amply rewarded by fairly kind and receptive green complexes that give you a chance to hit their broadsides without too much trouble, converting regulation approaches to pars quite easily.

This is an 18-hole, par 72, 7364-yard course.
