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.

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...

It is always fairly easy to write course reviews when things are good to very good. Not so easy when the words will be negative but to get the balance between courses tha...

Thorpe Hall 22/08/2019

12th Essex - Best in Area
It feels that Thorpe Hall flies a little under the radar in terms of awareness and is only really known by those in the locale or the visiting golfer from other Essex clu...

Highgate 16/08/2019

The course at Highgate, North London is not that well known outside of the area. It is a fantastic club with a decent course and one that visitors should seek out to play...

Centurion Club 20/06/2019

4th Hertfordshire - Best in Area 85th England Ranking
The Centurion has been open around six years and this week I had my fourth visit. Like most courses, they need time to mature, develop and bed-in and that growing period...

I returned to Northamptonshire County Golf Club after a gap of just over three years - this is a course that I loved more or less on arrival back in 2015. It was an easy...

Royal Ashdown Forest (West) 02/01/2019

10th Sussex - Best in Area
I am a fan of the West course and in some places and on some holes I have a preference over the Old course here. That may sound like sacrilege but there is a little half...

A 100+ year old course that has passed me by and my first visit in the scorcher summer of 2018 was really enjoyable – I’ll not go mad and say this is a ‘must-play’ but I...
