Mike Brooks


I’ve been an avid golfer since I was about 15 years old, living in Edinburgh. I am a member at Archerfield, North Berwick and Royal Dornoch and play off 9. I love playing new courses and have set myself a challenge of playing the top 100 courses in GB&I and as many of the top 100 courses in the world as possible.

Bearwood Lakes 05/05/2021

4th Berkshire - Best in Area 52nd England Ranking
Bearwood Lakes is not on many people’s bucket list of courses to play. It doesn’t (yet) feature in any of the top 100 GB&I listings and it doesn’t have the reputation of...

Ganton 10/01/2021

1st Yorkshire - Best in Area 9th England Ranking 26th Britain & Ireland Ranking 77th World Ranking
I am loath to make too firm a judgement of a course having only played it once, especially when I arrived tired after a long drive, but I found Ganton underwhelming. It i...

Dumbarnie Links 10/01/2021

Gem Scotland - Best in Area
Dumbarnie opened to rave reviews just after lockdown and I was fortunate enough to play it 3 times in June and July. As new courses go I hadn’t thought Kingsbarns or Cast...

3rd Ayrshire & Arran - Best in Area 15th Scotland Ranking 37th Britain & Ireland Ranking

3rd Lothians - Best in Area 20th Scotland Ranking 60th Britain & Ireland Ranking

Worplesdon 10/01/2021

9th Surrey - Best in Area 31st England Ranking 75th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Worplesdon is a beautifully presented course with a nice variety of holes. The par 3s stand out, in particular the 10th and 13th. Whilst it’s near neighbour West Hill has...

The Addington 10/01/2021

16th Surrey - Best in Area 58th England Ranking
The Addington is a decent course that is in need of some TLC. The greens are good, and were the fastest I played all year, but elsewhere the conditioning is poor. The goo...
