Golf courses from above – how many do you recognise?

Published on 10th May 2020 in Local and Member News, Local News, Members News

Our friends over at Golf Digest released some amazing shots of some of the most well know courses in the world, with a twist – they are all from satellite images.

We have added these images to this story, why not see if you can name them all in the comments section below – we have made it into a multiple choice quiz.  

There are some pretty tough ones in here, so I have decided to give you all a couple of free points – you should all be TWO out of TWO.

Click on the image to enlarge it, noting the multiple choice options at the bottom of each picture, then list your answers in the comments below!  As always – no google!!
