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.

24th Hertfordshire - Best in Area
A pretty good course and a very good club in a very congested Herts, Essex, North London market and probably a little low in the county rankings. First and foremost this...

My fourth round at Son Gual and as enjoyable and as immaculate as ever. We have a very technical course and one that is probably suited to the better player rather than t...

14th Lisbon & Centre - Best in Area 48th Portugal Ranking
Golfers arriving into Lisbon to play golf are likely to be travelling north to visit Praia del Rey, Royal Obidos and Bom Sucesso – which is a great trip but I would add a...

Praia D'El Rey 24/03/2016

4th Lisbon & Centre - Best in Area 9th Portugal Ranking 48th Continental Europe Ranking
This course is a strong 5-ball ranking, very strong indeed and close to me giving it the full 6-ball treatment; just a couple of holes that need a re-think but definitely...

Royal Obidos 23/03/2016

6th Lisbon & Centre - Best in Area 16th Portugal Ranking
The course here is one that can be described as very well-conditioned and manicured with perfect putting surfaces and wicked run-offs around the greens, the style that ca...

Bom Sucesso 22/03/2016

12th Lisbon & Centre - Best in Area 41st Portugal Ranking
A decent course that is very strong in places. A ‘get you away’ opening hole is followed by a very strong par-5, downhill, moving right with water butting up to the green...

Ponte Vedra (Ocean) 16/02/2016

73rd Florida - Best in Area
The area around Ponte Vedra is full of golf – TPC Sawgrass, The World Golf Hall of Fame and the PGATour HQ are all not too far away. The Ocean course is well worth playin...

7th Kent - Best in Area
The club and course have been around for well over 100 years (1890) but have been fairly private up to now meaning not as many visiting golfers as many other courses, the...

As many have said many times, Surrey is the strongest English county for golf courses; the country rankings tell us this every couple of years. A course in the county sec...

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...

Northamptonshire County 21/10/2015

The course here at Church Brampton had passed me by until this year and I played for the first time in early September. My first piece of advice is, if you have the cours...

Porters Park 08/09/2015

11th 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...

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...
