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.

Dale Hill (Woosnam) 19/09/2009

20th Sussex - Best in Area
Expectations were exceeded on the Woosnam course at Dale Hill. I thought I would get an ok hotel course that was pleasant enough to play; what I got was a decent course w...

Hanbury Manor 01/08/2009

10th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
I have played at Hanbury annually since the course opened in the early 90’s and at present I would say the front nine is looking as good as ever. Not too easy to play the...

Thorpeness 03/05/2009

5th Suffolk - Best in Area
This course thoroughly deserves it's GEM status, in fact it must be close to having a ranking. I played on a bright April morning and enjoyed the course and my round tota...

Notts 17/03/2009

1st Nottinghamshire - Best in Area 18th England Ranking 45th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Hollinwell is not a good course – it is an absolutely fantastic one. Very rarely has a course kept my interest on every shot, on every hole and I have played around 80 of...

Lindrick 16/03/2009

4th Yorkshire - Best in Area 59th England Ranking
I like Lindrick and had a lovely spring day’s golf there. The course is coming to life and the harsh UK winter is waving goodbye. The gorse is starting to bloom and I rea...

Foxhills (Bernard Hunt) 14/03/2009

33rd Surrey - Best in Area
A decent course rather a really great one. The mention of Surrey and golf gets most people weak at the knees as the quality is high and the list on this site has sixteen...

The Addington 03/12/2008

16th Surrey - Best in Area 58th England Ranking
The only negative is that there are two par-3’s in the first three holes – more unusual than negative maybe. Golf at the Addington is everything that is great about the g...

Hanbury Manor 06/10/2008

10th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
Great thing about the course here is that it is a great test and not too busy. Course condition in 2008 has been better than my last visit (2005) and although there are b...

Belfry (PGA National) 30/09/2008

13th Warwickshire - Best in Area
It is difficult to call this a bad course but it is not really a very good course either. The fairways are big and wide, the bunkering is big and the greens are big too....

Abridge 22/09/2008

11th Essex - Best in Area
Abridge is a good course but not quite in the very good category. There is a great clubhouse atmosphere and a healthy membership but the course sort of echoes Essex golf...

Woburn (Duchess) 11/09/2008

5th Buckinghamshire - Best in Area 96th England Ranking
As an example of a tree lined tight driving course that is as pretty as a picture, look no further than the Duchess course. I played in August 2008 (have now played about...

Bearwood Lakes 25/07/2008

4th Berkshire - Best in Area 52nd England Ranking
This is the fourth time I have played the course and not many courses improve on each visit but Bearwood Lakes certainly does. A few years ago the rough was too rough – t...

Rudding Park (Hawtree) 18/06/2008

36th Yorkshire - Best in Area
A fairly average hotel course that has some decent holes late on, the par-3 14th and then a tough par-4 at the 15th would be my choices of best holes. If this was a stand...

A warm welcome awaits at Liphook and this is a very enjoyable course to play. Earlier reviews use the words pretty, short, quaint and hospitable - are all are quite corre...

Worplesdon 29/03/2008

9th Surrey - Best in Area 31st England Ranking 75th Britain & Ireland Ranking
The land here is brilliant, neighbouring courses at West Hill and Woking have this benefit too. After playing the three ‘W’ courses any order of a 1-2-3 would not look wr...

Hampstead 29/01/2008

Gem England - Best in Area
An established 9-hole course with a par of 34, looks easy on paper but not the case on the course. Short par-4 first should be a good start to your card and maybe the par...
