I’m a sucker for a forged iron. Even though I don’t play them myself, and despite the scientific evidence that says they shouldn’t feel any better, there’s nothing that feels quite like a sweetly struck shot hit with a forged iron.
With 61 majors won with their irons, the most of any brand, it can be argued that Wilson are the king of the forged iron. And they were the brand of the king, for the majority of his career Arnold Palmer famously used Wilson Staff equipment. But wait, there’s more…
The Domaine de Sperone Golf Club is located in the southern point of the beautiful island of Corsica, near Bonifacio, France. The 18-hole magnificently designed course provides breathtaking views of the Mediterranean coastline, the Bonifacio Strait and tiny islands in the vicinity.

The Lost City Golf Course is an 18-hole desert-style golf course within the Sun City entertainment complex in the semi-desert of the North-West Province of South Africa. Designed by South Africa’s grand master of golf Gary Player, the Lost City Golf Course covers more than 100 hectares and incorporates 28,000 m2 of water features. It comes as no surprise that golf carts are compulsory.

It has often been noted that the game is more exciting when played downhill and this is certainly the case here. In addition to the previously mentioned thirteenth, holes eleven, fourteen, fifteen and sixteen are all played from elevated tees offering thrill, excitement and a challenge to the golfer – as well as some of the most spectacular African views to be had on a golf course.
