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.

Dunstable Downs 28/10/2015

2nd Bedfordshire - Best in Area
A game at Dunstable is really enjoyable and although both the front and the back nine are par-35, there is a clear distinction between them. On the front, it is not until...

Porters Park 08/09/2015

8th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
This is a strong 4-ball rating and some may say that the recent positive move from 16th to 11th in the Hertfordshire rankings is not enough – possibly… One of the first t...

Crowborough Beacon 28/08/2015

5th Sussex - Best in Area 86th England Ranking
This course is on high land, well above sea level and a worthy member of the English Top 100. Being this high, there is a slight delay in the growth of the course each ye...

4th Nottinghamshire - Best in Area
The course at Worksop has a lot going for it, especially the heathland turf that is a joy to play from when the weather is fine and has fantastic drainage when needed. Th...

Royal Cromer 12/06/2015

5th Norfolk - Best in Area
A huge improvement since my last visit eight years ago. Many changes to the course have taken place in that time; bunkering is now very strong indeed with consistent sand...

Blackmoor 29/05/2015

4th Hampshire - Best in Area 71st England Ranking
The top-end of the Hampshire rankings is very strong, the only two currently in front of Blackmoor are Liphook and Hayling. I played Blackmoor for the first time in 2015...

West Surrey 16/08/2014

First visit in over 20 years and I genuinely didn’t remember the course being this good. Obviously Surrey has so many great courses, including 20% of the best in country...

Playing at Blackwell is a treat, one of the very best club/course combinations around and worthy of a place in the Top 100 for the country. A traditional English club wit...

Ferndown (Old) 06/08/2014

4th Dorset - Best in Area 51st England Ranking
Slightly different to near neighbours, Broadstone and Parkstone in that the course is on much flatter ground and certainly less dramatic. In saying this it is still a 5-b...

I have been coming to Chart Hills on and off for around 20 years and right now it is not in the best shape. I have to agree with the recent review; conditioning and prese...
