I last played Hinksey way back in 2001 and I must admit the course has improved a lot while still providing some great views of Oxford. The fairways have been flattened out so they are no longer covered with unsightly bumps and the greens are silky smooth to putt on.

You may not be able to get a round at Augusta National in Georgia but you can play the 12th & 16th Augusta ‘Tribute’ holes at Northwick Park in Harrow, Middlesex.

The Majors course at Northwick Park was voted the UK’s top 9-hole course in 2009, it’s superb greens and accurately crafted replications of the key holes at Major Championship venues like Royal Troon, The Belfry, Royal Birkdale and of course Augusta make the layout a great challenge at a very affordable price.
