Our best reviewer photos of the month: August 2020

Images from around the globe - including castles - highlight this month's submissions.

One of the joys of collecting the best user photos of the month is discovering some cool courses we as a staff haven't seen personally.

Many of them are overseas. Obviously, it's a treat when we get to play the best courses of continental Europe and the British Isles. But sometimes it's even more gratifying to find a gem we know little about. Seeing an image like Brancepeth Castle in England just adds another course to our must-play list. The Wenvoe Castle Golf Club - a private club with a castle and roots to James Braid in Cardiff, Wales - is another photo that caught our attention.

One submitted photo is actually new to everybody. The 27-hole Moreno Valley Ranch, a Pete Dye design, shuttered five years ago, but has been reborn as the redesigned 18-hole Rancho Del Sol in southern California. It opened Aug. 28, according to the Press-Enterprise.

Fortunately for the industry, golf continues to boom during the pandemic. August, being the final month of summer, brought us more than 30,000 reviews for the third straight month, many with photos, from around the globe. Sending children back to school and fall's unpredictable weather could slow some of golf's momentum but hopefully only in small increments.

Remember to keep the reviews and photos coming! (Get started with a review right here). In addition to our monthly roundup, we love sharing these images on Instagram, so follow us there to see all the best images coming in from our community.
