EG Ohman

I have played a bit, almost 300 different courses to date, roughly half of them in the British Isles and found Top 100 an excellent source of information to plan golf trips. I also think it is great that it is now possible to seek out like-minded reviewers. If this is also your view, then you should know that my preferences include courses which play firm and fast, and designs which make you think twice about your club selection rather than just bombing drivers from the tee and drilling holes in the greens with short irons. Likewise, I enjoy the luxury of playing without having to wait. I think playing golf at your own pace is similar to finding fresh untracked snow when skiing down a mountain. In both cases, a pleasure best shared! I manage this surprisingly often by playing courses ranked just below the top and trying to get on higher-ranked tracks at off-peak times.

Son Antem (West) 05/11/2017

10th Balearic Islands - Best in Area
Let’s deal with the conditioning point previous reviewers have mentioned straightaway. Greens on the West course have been relaid in 2017, so hopefully it should have its...

Son Muntaner 05/11/2017

3rd Balearic Islands - Best in Area 65th Spain Ranking
Feel it is appropriate to come back with another review on Son Muntaner after the course was completely regrassed in 2016 and holes 5 and 6 rerouted back to their origina...

Portsalon 18/09/2017

5th Donegal - Best in Area 22nd Ireland Ranking
It is easy to leave very good courses off the itinerary because there are great courses nearby. I would argue that anyone who ignores Portsalon and puts Rosapenna Sandy H...

Just came back for this year's trip to Donegal. Despite also playing the scenic and wonderful courses at Ballyliffin, Rosapenna, Narin&Portnoo and Portsalon, it is the cr...

Expectations play a big role in shaping the experience. Having read glowing reviews on Hindhead at this site and elsewhere, mine were unfortunately set too high. The topo...

Hankley Common 09/06/2017

7th Surrey - Best in Area 26th England Ranking 61st Britain & Ireland Ranking
If you have time for just one round of heathland golf, I suggest you choose Hankley. I immediately think of two reasons:1) Many heathland courses were built on open spac...

15th Surrey - Best in Area 60th England Ranking
I have friend who really enjoys the yesteryear atmosphere of clubs like Brancaster, Luffness, Swinley Forest and Rye. Unfortunately, he could not join us at New Zealand....

Sand 09/05/2017

11th Sweden Ranking 92nd Continental Europe Ranking
I have seen two very different views of Sand GC: 1) a fabulous modern inland links course, 2) an artificial course slightly out of tune with the surrounding landscape. T...

Österlen (Lilla Vik) 20/04/2017

39th Sweden Ranking
Österlen, the eastern part of Skåne is a favourite vacation region for many Swedes. The golfers among them also seem to have a long-standing love affair with Lilla Vik....

Barsebäck (Masters) 20/04/2017

6th Sweden Ranking 46th Continental Europe Ranking
Will you like Barsebäck? I think it very much depends on what kind of golf you prefer. Most Swedish golfers are brought up on parkland courses, or woodland courses which...

Biarritz Le Phare 15/04/2017

9th South West France - Best in Area 51st France Ranking
Coming from old, compact, hemmed-in golf courses in London, I felt at home at once when I played Biarritz the first time. As is the case with many clubs in such settings,...

Wimereux 15/04/2017

32nd North East France - Best in Area 71st France Ranking
In the early 90s, the club had no irrigation, so playing it during a dry summer felt like going back to the early days of the game of golf. It is also a treasured persona...

Maioris 15/04/2017

5th Balearic Islands - Best in Area 85th Spain Ranking
The first time I visited Maioris in October 2016 the course was in such awful shape that one ball would have been too much! The manager immediately gave us vouchers to co...

Dunbar 26/03/2017

6th Lothians - Best in Area 32nd Scotland Ranking
Why do we not play Dunbar every time we are in the region? The usual reason is that someone wants to play North Berwick and/or Muirfield. Sounds familiar? I am not going...

Falkenberg (18-hole) 06/02/2017

Falkenberg neither has the cachet of nearby Tylösand with Halmstad GK's flagship North Course, only slightly more than half an hour's drive along the coast to the south,...

Son Gual 06/02/2017

First time I played Son Guál, all I saw was a course that was so much better in every aspect than virtually every other course on the island, except perhaps Alcanada, whi...
