My aim is to play the top 100 golf courses in the British Isles. I have currently played 145 but only 80 of the current list. Last Wednesday I played Sunningdale New and was very disappointed with the condition of the tees and bunkers and it's green were barely 8 on the stint meter. However my Thursday golf was at a vastly superior course at Sherwood Forest. The bunkers had sand in, the greens were about 10.5 on the stint meter and were very true and all the tees were easy to find. Sherwood Forest might not give the single figure golfer the same challenge as say Walton Heath or Gleneagles PGA Centenary but the condition and the fun the course gave me was superior. I cannot understand why this course is not ranked much higher.
