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.

Manor House 16/08/2005

2nd Wiltshire - Best in Area
The course at the Manor House is well worth the visit. After a gentle 1st hole, the 2nd (par 3) and 3rd (par 5 into and over the valley) are real quality golf holes and a...

North Hants 23/05/2005

5th Hampshire - Best in Area 81st England Ranking
What a great golfing experience. North Hants is very similar to some of it’s nearby Surrey heathland neighbours – but in my mind is better than most of them. A course of...

Slaley Hall (Hunting) 26/04/2005

4th Northumberland - Best in Area
Modern course built on a great piece of land – plenty of variety here although there is something lacking. The course suffers out of season and does look a little weather...

Brocket Hall (Melbourne) 20/04/2005

12th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
What I like most about the Melbourne course is the variety and quality. When you get these two traits, then you are on to a winner. A very tough opening drive with the Ri...

Brocket Hall (Palmerston) 20/04/2005

13th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
Billed as the second and newer course at Brocket but this could easily be the pick of the two for some. Very Woburnesque in places (which is always a plus point) and also...

Belfry (PGA National) 16/04/2005

13th Warwickshire - Best in Area
Not a lot to say about the PGA at the Belfry. All pretty samey and rather predictable. The quality is not too bad but nothing more than an average rating from me - have p...

Belfry (Brabazon) 15/04/2005

1st Warwickshire - Best in Area 76th England Ranking
After reading comments from other golfers about the Brabazon, I was nervous that my wander around the famous 18 would be disappointing – Nothing of the sort, the Brabazon...

West Hill 11/02/2005

10th Surrey - Best in Area 33rd England Ranking 79th Britain & Ireland Ranking
West Hill is a tough test with a par of 69, which includes 5 par 4’s over 400 yards. Straight driving is needed to enable a chance of getting to the green on these holes...

This is one for the purists. Great location with 18 holes weaving their way through the quality that is the National Trust’s beautiful woodland. The variety of holes are...

Had a couple of rounds here and this is in the top end of the course and resort market. The hotel and leisure facilities along with the golf course make Hanbury Manor a s...

The Grove 25/09/2004

Ah The Grove ... There is no doubt this is good, the attention to detail around the course is high and the greens were as good as any (and I played in January) - but ther...

Beau Desert 08/09/2004

3rd Staffordshire - Best in Area 55th England Ranking
Similar to the other reviews; this is a lovely golf course full of quality. Every hole is worthy of a mention here and difficult to pick the best (maybe the 12th). The ke...
