Augusta National Golf Club - Augusta, Georgia, USA

Home of the prestigious Masters tournament, Augusta National Golf Club, simply called Augusta, is known as one of the most exclusive and highly regarded courses in the world and is every golfer's dream golf course.

Designed by legendary golfer Bobby Jones and course architect Alister MacKenzie in 1934, Augusta is known for its meticulously manicured fairways and its beautiful shrubbery - the ground used to be used as a plant nursery, providing it the ability to grow luscious greenery.

Augusta has a rich history in golf and specifically the PGA Tour, as it is home to quite possibly the most desirable golf tournament on the calendar, the Masters.

A win at the Masters is one of the biggest achievements a golfer can obtain, and the exclusive green jacket club is one every player dreams of one day being a part of.

Augusta is a very exclusive club, so they best chance the average golfer has of going to the iconic course is through attending the Masters.

You can experience the course this year with premium Masters tickets & hospitality package, providing you with the best experience at the year's top tournament.

Tickets are still available with Seat Unique for the Friday and the Sunday, but you’ll want to get them soon as the tournament is coming up fast!

St. Andrews Links - Fife, Scotland

When speaking of the greatest golf course in the UK, nothing comes close to St. Andrews. Considered the "home of golf", St. Andrews Links is the oldest golf course in the world, with a history dating back to the 15th century.

Located in the coastal town of St. Andrews in Scotland, the course is actually a collection of seven different courses, each with its own unique challenges and charms.

The main course of the seven is The Old Course, which has hosted some of the most prestigious tournaments in the world, including The Open Championship.

Like The Masters, The Open is a prestigious tournament that every player each year aims to be victorious at. The coveted claret jug trophy that is presented to the winner is as much a dream to lift as the green jacket is to put on.

Being the only PGA Tour major championship played in the UK, The Open is a highly popular event for British and European fans. However, unlike The Masters, The Open moves around year-to-year. This year it will be held at Royal Liverpool.

If you’re interested in being at this year's Open, be sure to enquire now about The Open hospitality & premium tickets. By enquiring, you are showing your interest in the event, and you are also letting us know that you want to be contacted should we have any tickets available.

The Belfry Golf Course - Warwickshire, England

Next up is The Belfry Golf Course in Warwickshire, England. Located just outside the centre of Birmingham is this gem of a golf course/ golf resort & hotel. It is also the home of the Professional Golfers’ Association, or the PGA as we know it.

Originally designed by the legendary golfer Dave Thomas, it has undergone several renovations over the years to maintain its reputation as one of the top courses in Europe.

The course is set on over 500 acres of picturesque countryside and offers three different courses, including the Brabazon, PGA National, and Derby.

The Brabazon course is the most famous and is known for its challenging layout, particularly the 10th hole, which has been dubbed "the most famous hole in golf". It is the go-to course for any competitions held there.

Belfry golf course has hosted numerous European Tour events and has seen some of the world's top golfers compete on its fairways. Most notably, it has hosted the Ryder Cup four times, more than any other single venue in the world.

This year, The Belfry’s will once again be hosting the DP World Tour’s Betfred British Masters event on 30th June - 2nd July. You can be there in style with premium British Masters tickets, brought to you by Seat Unique.

Pebble Beach Golf Links - Pebble Beach, California, USA

Nestled on the stunning Monterey Peninsula in California, Pebble Beach Golf Links is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful courses in the world.

Designed by legendary course architects Jack Neville and Douglas Grant, the course hugs the rugged coastline, offering stunning views of Monterey Bay and the Northern Pacific.

Pebble Beach has hosted several major championships, including the U.S. Open on five separate occasions. It also features each year as the host of the AT&T Pro-Am, which sees a number of top golfers paired with celebrities and athletes.

Unfortunately, Pebble Beach will not be hosting this year's US Open Championship, with that honour going to the Los Angeles Country Club. However, you should still look to wanting to go to the major tournament.

Be sure to enquire now for premium US Open hospitality & tickets so you can show your interest in attending the event, and so that we can contact you should we have any tickets available.

Wentworth Golf Club - Surrey, England

Possibly a bit more of an out-there pick on this list, but it has its place, The Wentworth Golf Course is a world-famous golf course located in Virginia Water, Surrey, England.

It is widely considered one of the finest golf courses in the UK and Europe, and has a rich history dating back to the 1920s.

It has been designed to challenge the world's top golfers and is known for its demanding layout and undulating greens. The course has been the scene of many historic moments in golf, including several holes-in-one and record-breaking performances.

The course is set on over 700 acres of beautiful parkland and offers three different courses, including the East, West, and Edinburgh.

The East Course is the most famous and has hosted numerous European Tour events, including the BMW PGA Championship, which it will host once again this season on the DP World Tour calendar.

Special Mention: Royal Melbourne Golf Club - Melbourne, Australia

A special mention is given to the Royal Melbourne Golf Club, as it is a highly-rated course but does not feature any major tournaments on the PGA.

Located in Melbourne, Australia, the Royal Melbourne Golf Club is considered one of the finest golf courses in the world. The course was designed by renowned architect Alister MacKenzie, who also designed Augusta National.

With two championship courses, the East and West, the Royal Melbourne Golf Club offer stunning scenery and challenging play. The West Course in particular was designed to be a spectator's paradise.

What the course is best known for is its bunkering, which is designed as if it were an art form. It is part of Australia’s revered ‘sandbelt’, which refers to a stretch of land that has soil that is as if it were sent from the heavens specifically for golf.

While the PGA Tour doesn’t visit this side of the world each year, the course has hosted numerous international events, including the Presidents Cup and the World Cup of Golf.
