Andy

I've played golf for around 40 years now, mainly around GB&I but have travelled extensively in the last 15 years to play and have had a great time. Coastal golf remains my favourite style of course and would always be my first choice, in saying that a recent visit to The Links at Fancourt, South Africa gave an instant entry to my personal top 5. Must have played close to 1,000 courses now and love sharing my thoughts on the Top 100 website, which is the best source around to research courses and opinions.

My last visit to Denham was at least 25 years ago, when those IT supplier golf days were aplenty, and Denham was part of that rota to host them. In those days my scoring...

Puttenham 04/09/2019

38th Surrey - Best in Area
Puttenham has been around forever but in terms of any rankings, it has flown way under the radar. Not a course that is well known from too far away from the club but I sa...

My second round at La Finca and my words from the review below from 2017 are still pretty much as I would write again now. What I would say in 2019, we have a much better...
