Alex

I've played golf for around 40 years now, mainly around GB&I but have travelled extensively in the last 10 years to play and have had a great time. Coastal golf remains my favourite style of course and would always be my first choice, in saying that a recent visit to The Links at Fancourt, South Africa gave an instant entry to my personal top 5. Must have played close to 1,000 courses now and love sharing my thoughts on the Top 100 website, which is the best source around to research courses and opinions.

Son Muntaner 28/12/2016

3rd Balearic Islands - Best in Area 65th Spain Ranking
I agree with the most recent review (April ’16) for the course, this doesn’t feel like the #3 course on the island. In saying that there has been big changes recently and...

Brookmans Park 19/11/2016

17th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
Many courses around the Herts/north London border can blend in to each other because of similar land and similar course style, so it is not easy to stand-out from the cro...

Mission Inn (El Campeón) 07/09/2016

53rd Florida - Best in Area
There are two decent courses at the Mission Inn resort and El Campeon (The Champion) is the older and better than Las Colinas (The Hills) here. As I mentioned in my revie...

Fulwell 24/06/2016

2nd Middlesex - Best in Area
When playing a course for the first time, I like to do a little research and always arrive with a level of expectation. After playing Fulwell my pre-visit expectations we...

Prince’s (Himalayas) 16/06/2016

23rd Kent - Best in Area
The strongest 18 holes at Prince’s in terms of test, length etc. is probably the Shore/Dunes combination but if I only have time for 9 holes, then I would probably opt fo...

Millbrook Golf Club 16/06/2016

9th Bedfordshire - Best in Area
Millbrook is well worth a visit and a course that I describe as good and very good in places that has a few interesting talking points - you may substitute talking points...

Bishop's Stortford 20/05/2016

29th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
A pretty good course and a very good club in a very congested Herts, Essex, North London market and probably a little low in the county rankings. First and foremost this...

Son Gual 18/05/2016

1st Balearic Islands - Best in Area 9th Spain Ranking 51st Continental Europe Ranking
My fourth round at Son Gual and as enjoyable and as immaculate as ever. We have a very technical course and one that is probably suited to the better player rather than t...

Gem Portugal - Best in Area
Golfers arriving into Lisbon to play golf are likely to be travelling north to visit Praia del Rey, Royal Obidos and Bom Sucesso – which is a great trip but I would add a...

Praia D'El Rey 24/03/2016

3rd Lisbon & Centre - Best in Area 8th Portugal Ranking 73rd Continental Europe Ranking
This course is a strong 5-ball ranking, very strong indeed and close to me giving it the full 6-ball treatment; just a couple of holes that need a re-think but definitely...

Royal Obidos 23/03/2016

5th Lisbon & Centre - Best in Area 13th Portugal Ranking
The course here is one that can be described as very well-conditioned and manicured with perfect putting surfaces and wicked run-offs around the greens, the style that ca...

Bom Sucesso 22/03/2016

12th Lisbon & Centre - Best in Area
A decent course that is very strong in places. A ‘get you away’ opening hole is followed by a very strong par-5, downhill, moving right with water butting up to the green...

Ponte Vedra (Ocean) 16/02/2016
