Andy

I've played golf for around 40 years now, mainly around GB&I but have travelled extensively in the last 10 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.

3rd Berkshire - Best in Area 36th England Ranking 85th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Straight from the first hole on the Blue (long par-3 in-front of the clubhouse), the course sets a fine standard. A little more open from the tee than the Red course that...

Fantastic - really enjoyed this heathland beauty. The change in elevation on several holes is evident as early as the 2nd and 3rd holes, two great par 4's - one uphill an...

Berkshire (Red) 31/10/2007

2nd Berkshire - Best in Area 22nd England Ranking 49th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Both courses at The Berkshire are quality with the Red being my favourite, but only just. It is well known that the area around Surrey/Berks has some of the very best hea...

Earlier this year I played and posted a review for the Cornelia course in Turkey and thought it was the best new European course for a while. Well after my round at Monte...

Copt Heath 09/10/2007

5th Warwickshire - Best in Area
Copt Heath is well worth a visit; it is a very green and lush surrounding and is a joyful setting. The course is flat but do not be fooled as there are many tough holes....

Vilamoura has a really nice feel to the place, five courses are open and the Millennium was the fourth. First couple of holes are new and look new; holes 3 through 7 are...

Vilamoura (Old) 29/09/2007

3rd Algarve - Best in Area 6th Portugal Ranking 39th Continental Europe Ranking
The Old course has a brilliant start with a downhill par-4, an uphill par-5 and a picturesque par-3 at the 4th hole. The setting is through the trees that are so familiar...

Played at Finca Cortesin after seeing some promotion at the Open Championship at Carnoustie and thought I would give it a try. The course is very young but the early sign...

22nd Hertfordshire - Best in Area
Good honest parkland course with a fair hint of quality. It is predominantly at its best in the summer but that must be true about many inland park courses. Fantastic gre...

10th Turkey Ranking
In comparison to the Old course at same resort, the New is easier and that is probably because there is more room off of the tee. Around five years newer also but is stil...
