Apologies if this sounds a bit morbid but always interested and will use it online... if you can explain why it's so special that would be great, thanks

With the Tartan Tour going there this week I was reminded of Royal Dornoch which is precisely where I would love to play my final game.
Some of my favourite holes on the planet and one of those places where you could play like a drain and still love every second

Gleneagles Kings. Every hole is interesting, every hole a challenge. Add in the scenery, beautiful, and the quality upkeep of the course, it is simply a fabulous place to play.

Little Hay Golf Complex. It's where I learned to play so a round there with my friends from home and a sausage sandwich in the bar after would be perfect to finish on. I haven't played there in years as well so shooting a good score there would bring some satisfaction (as would not having to wait 30mins for a lift home!!)

High praise, we are playing there at the end of June this year Covid permitting. I am looking forward to it.

Cleeve Hill, so much fun had, forgiving, enjoyable and great views.

A round, views and walk to savour as your last and wont beat you up if your having a bad golfing day.

Old Course St Andrews. Nice summer day with a gentle breeze. Most importantly I must be playing with three mates. Hopefully play well, but if not wouldn’t care.

I had the Queens there in my top 3, mainly based on a memory of Pro Celebrity Golf in the late 70s

Must try and get back to Royal Dornoch as I was underwhelmed when I played there, the first was a very average hole and I struggle to remember any really standout holes.

They views are good but nowhere near as spectacular as my home course.

As for a last round I would go for Darenth Valley in Kent just for the fact we had a family and friends society there for 14 years and had many good memories.
