Your Top 100 Golf Courses of Britain & Ireland

12th November 2010 

It is high time to announce the most fascinating element of the Top 100 website. Your golf course review posts are not only entertaining and incredibly well written, but also they provide an alternative perspective to golf course ratings. Every two years we assimilate your personal ratings for each course and input your data into our overall golf course ranking process. 

Most people reading this news item will be familiar with the golf ball ratings that are used alongside your player review online posts. We’ve focused on each and every golf ball that you have allocated to every British and Irish course and we’ve painstakingly number crunched the data. We then sequenced the results and produced a unique Top 100 list, which is “Your Britain & Ireland Top 100”. 

To support this process, we have also produced and published “Your Top 100” lists for Scotland, Ireland and England. Additionally we’ve published a “Your Top 30” for Wales. Details of these releases are available in the news section of the Top 100 website, but for your convenience, here are links to each of these recent news items:
