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.

Vale (Wales National) 12/10/2006

14th South Wales - Best in Area 33rd Wales Ranking
The resort at the Vale is a welcome addition to the M4 golfing corridor that includes St Pierre, Celtic Manor, Porthcawl, and Pennard to name a few. The Vale will be hopi...

1st Wiltshire - Best in Area
After a slow start with up and down holes and the 1st and 2nd, the par 5 3rd is in my mind the start of a great course. The 8th has got to go down as one of the fun holes...

London Club (International) 11/09/2006

10th Kent - Best in Area
It is a very decent second course at a location where you are looked after so well. My preference would be the Heritage course as a collection of 18 holes but there are p...

4th Cheshire - Best in Area 100th England Ranking
Certainly cant argue that this is a decent course; but there are far too many blind shots for this to be up there with the great courses. Enjoyable and will play it again...

Cork 03/08/2006

2nd Cork - Best in Area 34th Ireland Ranking
Decent parkland course with plenty of history – certainly one of Ireland’s oldest courses. Brilliant holes along the shoreline (4th and 5th) and watch out for the 17th, i...

Fota Island (Deerpark) 03/08/2006

3rd Cork - Best in Area 35th Ireland Ranking
Mixed feelings, yes it is very well kept and manicured to a high level but out of all the Irish courses I have ever played (30+) this is the first that just had no Irish...

Old Head 03/08/2006

1st Cork - Best in Area 15th Ireland Ranking 65th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Oh my god! I have never been so scared over so many shots as here. This is so spectacular and so good. Old Head is fun, scary, exciting and a place that is totally un-for...

6th Kent - Best in Area
Beautifully carved new course in fine condition. Only for members and their guests which is a shame but if you get the chance take it. Ultra modern style and this is top...

Batchworth Park 09/07/2006

19th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
Difficult to dislike Batchworth Park as there is plenty of variation and a pleasant enough place to play golf (if you can get on, members and guests only). First couple o...

Mill Ride 09/07/2006

This is worth playing and when you have I think you’ll probably want to go back again (I will). Really nice course that exceeded expectations – when you think of golf in...

The Island 07/07/2006

2nd Dublin - Best in Area 8th Ireland Ranking 50th Britain & Ireland Ranking
One of the best links courses around. It’s a bit tough finding the place as there are no signposts and the road you need to take is one of the Beatles kind, i.e. long and...

Mannings Heath (Waterfall) 02/06/2006

Have played here twice; once in the winter and once in the summer. Like most courses, Mannings Heath looks a picture in the summer by comparison. Right now the fairways a...

6th North Scotland - Best in Area 30th Scotland Ranking 94th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Great out and in links. Rather charming with the sheep and cattle wandering around with no interest in your birdie at the 2nd or your eight at the 7th - I do think I saw...
