Chris Wanless

I have played Golf for over 10 years, currently playing to a handicap of 12.

I have been embarking on a journey through England's Top 100 Golf Courses, with a life goal to play the Top 100 in England, GB & Ire, Europe and the World.

All reviews and photos are shared on my Instagram Account: Top.100.Golf

Favourite courses include St George's Hill, Parkstone, Ipswich, Sunningdale, Woodhall Spa and Finca Cortesin.

I never shy away from any help and keen to engage, so do follow me and drop me a message.
