Published

Last week saw the European Tour’s flagship event take place and with it the return to the winner’s circle of 2016 Masters champ Danny Willett.

GolfWRX Spotlight: Evalu18 – ‘Evaluating golf architecturally’

Published

on

When it comes to course directories with an emphasis on past and present architects, Evalu18 is likely to be one of the most in-depth—for UK and Ireland golf courses—you’re ever likely to see—highlighted by the site’s wealth of information and user-friendly navigation.

Jasper Miners, a Canadian now living in London, is the brains behind Evalu18. He explained to me how the concept began as a map with courses that he wanted to play based on his extensive research, which was then added to based on the recommendations of others. Frustrated by the lack of an easy way to access the information in a modern format – he created Evalu18.

“After some time I shared a map with a good friend, an American from New York whom I worked with who was a very keen golfer. The map and my notes allowed him to find great golf wherever he was and to plan a trip easily. 

Everyone has heard of the Open rota courses and perhaps some of the courses which are intimately linked to the history and origins of the game. However, for every well-known course, there are 10-20 that may be just as good that we and even locals may never have even heard of. Evalu18 exists for those – sound golf is the criteria for being listed.” – Jasper Miners, founder of Evalu18

Beginning with the site’s interactive map the depth of research and information available is striking. The filter option, which has been crafted down to the minutest detail, puts the directory in a league of its own and allows golfers to plan for the perfect day out or golfing trip.

Whether you are looking for a particular golf course from a specific architect or consultant, to whether the track is dog-friendly. or is suited to trolleys or buggies, Evalu18 has you covered. The directory allows you to filter courses based on the level of difficulty their walkability is, what is available practice facility wise or if you’re looking for a course which has ever hosted a specific event as well as much more.

Another cool feature of Evalu18 is its “Collections” element. With taste and preference regarding golf courses being so vast amongst golfers, the site doesn’t separate courses by ranking but lets you home in on that ideal course in a simple fashion.

The Collection section showcases courses that are grouped according to identifiable characteristics. Featured in this area of the site are nine-hole courses, truly unique courses, bunker-less courses, hidden gems, bang-for-your-buck courses as well as so many more cool categories.

Each course on the site contains information that a typical guest would want to know, with plenty also featuring full reviews written to enhance the experience.

Additionally, a “discover” section of the site allows golf-enthusiasts to explore golf course architecture books, magazines and pertinent works with the company confidently claiming to have “the most thorough collection of GCA book reviews anywhere online.”

 

As for what’s next for Evalu18, international growth along with a unique travel guide, says Jasper

“We are working on improvements to the site and a unique travel section that will have substantial guides. Every course can also have included recommended accommodation, food and drink venues and tourist sites. We engage with the clubs and have them help us tell their story – what makes them unique and worth your time, attention and $.”

Whether you are already in the UK and Ireland or planning that dream golfing trip abroad, Evalu18 is a site that is a must for any golfer to check out. Once you do, it will likely place you on your ideal course—which before you may not have even known existed.

Check out Evalu18 here.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.? ? We all deserve a chance to "getaway" from the daily grind. And so, my favorite place to escape to has always been Kauai. Oh, the garden island. Full of love, rainbows, epic views and good golf! I've been visiting this island for many years and it's starting to kind of feel like home. Truth be known I'm not there enough, but when I do visit it's completely refreshing. ? ? Kukui'ula, pictured here in the pano (swipe ??), is a part of that refresh that I look forward to every time. Tom Weiskopf designed the challenging 18-hole Kaua'i golf course that Golf Digest called “One of the Best Courses in Hawaii.” The challenging 14th hole, sometimes described as “a quintessential Weiskopf par 4,” has become legendary—and not just because of its dramatic ocean views, or sightings of spinner dolphins and humpback whales.? ? ????@channingbenjaminphotography @kukuiula ? ? . . . . . #alohafriday #aloha #kukuiula #picoftheday #hawaiilife #kauai #kauaiswhy #beautifuldestinations #hawaiigolf #hawaiistagram #instagoodmyphoto #instalike #whyilovethisgame #instagolf #golfing #thisisgolf #pga #golfcoursephotos #golfaddict #golfwrx #golf #golfphotography #beautifulgolfcourses #golfdigest #golfcourses #golfcoursearchitecture

It’s been a few years since I had the opportunity to have a putter on the club count at a PGA-level event. @hughroyergolf fixed that with his playing into the Champions Tour Cologuard Classic this weekend! Congrats to HRIII for his fighting and tenacity. For those who don’t know, Hugh was out of action for over a year, fighting Basal Cell skin cancer that nearly put him down. The orange dots on the flange of this putter are there to make sure that the fight is never forgotten. Watch for HRIII this weekend as he reminds his peers that he still has game. #hriii #mannmade #pgachampions #5goldPINGputters #mannkrafted #customputter #milledputter #handmade #fightthefight #basalcellsurvivor #doingwhatilove #doingitoldschool #golfwrx #golfdigest #golfersjournal #sunridgecanyongolf
