England's Second Hundred 2011

With 48 new entries, our newly extended English golf course rankings reveal significant changes. We will continue to perfect the ranking process over time and your player review posts are an important element in our ranking process.

Some of the new entries are courses which we have featured on the Top 100 website for many years and some of these have numerous player reviews posted. However, there are 19 brand new entries and these courses would benefit from your honest input. We’d be grateful if you would post player reviews for any of the courses you’ve played. We’ll then use this data alongside other published ranking and rating information to formulate our 2013 English rankings.

Thurlestone is the highest new entry in our England Second Hundred and it moves straight out of “Your Gems” to position 102. “Thurlestone was founded in 1897 on a massive rabbit warren, covered with scrub, brambles and gorse.” Wrote Peter Alliss in the Good Golf Guide. “Put another way, it was almost the ideal for golf – once the fairways had been carved through, and greens laid.”

Northamptonshire County is the second highest new entry and it too was formerly a Gem nominated by Paul back in January 2008. Here’s what Paul had to say: “It is a very traditional course and although parkland in style, it has a heathland feel to it. Designed by Harry Colt in 1909 and standing the test of time very well after a bunker layout change in 1947 by James Braid, the club is now extending the course further with many new tees opening in spring 2008 to lengthen the layout to over 6,700 yards.”

We plan to focus firmly on England’s golf courses during 2011 and aim to showcase many more fine courses from around the country. Keep a close eye on what’s happening here at Top 100 during 2011, you may find your home club featured.
