In the upcoming article, we are going to discuss our Top 5 Golf Courses in the world. Whilst it's nigh on impossible to pit different courses against each other, we are going to judge courses on aesthetic value, popularity and pedigree.
5). Cypress Point Club: California: Par 72

Set in the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains, on the tip of the Monterey Peninsula, the dramatic clifftop terrain is as thrilling as it is tactically challenging.

The Royal Country Down Golf Club is widely regarded to have one of the best front-nines in the world, with holes 4 and 9 widely reputed as two of the best holes in golf.
