Chris Griffiths

On a lifelong journey to play the English Top 100 courses, and any other 'Top 100' along the way.

A left handed golfer, playing off 12, with an abnormal baseball grip (pals don't let me forget it), I am seeking what everybody does - consistency. Still searching.

Absolutely adore heathland courses, but have played many great links and parkland courses. That said, I am not particularly picky and "Any day on the golf course, is better than any other day".

My top 5 English courses would have to be:

1. The Berkshire (Red)

2. Woodhall Spa

3. St. Enedoc (Church)

4. Liphook

5. Woburn (Marquess)
