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.

93rd Florida - Best in Area
The Mission Inn resort is a little way out of Orlando, about 45 minutes north-west and may not be a natural choice for holidaying visitors but I would certainly say why n...

Llavaneras 12/11/2014

17th North East Spain - Best in Area
Llavaneras is worth a visit – here is a Spanish course in easy reach of Barcelona with some history (opened in 1945) and it is not like many of the newer courses of the c...

What a pleasant surprise … there are many parkland courses in Hertfordshire and the area south of the county on the way into London and WGC is one of the better ones and...

Lee Valley 14/09/2014

8th Cork - Best in Area
If one of the measures of a golf club is all about the welcome and friendliness, then Lee Valley is towards the very top end. The course has plenty going for it too – if...

Castlemartyr 12/09/2014

4th Cork - Best in Area 73rd Ireland Ranking
The course at Castlemartyr is difficult to find fault with and there are plenty of positives. I say this with this style of course not being my favourite by a long stretc...

West Surrey 16/08/2014

22nd Surrey - Best in Area
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...

Blackwell 08/08/2014

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...

Formby Hall 05/08/2014

20th Lancashire - Best in Area
The Formby Hall resort is a super place to stay and play and ideal to use as a base to visit the courses along England’s Golf Coast. The course starts slowly for me and b...

A decent parkland course that has some stand-out holes and is a pleasure to play and without a doubt the best course of this style in the county of Durham. The course has...

This is a very good club and a full membership underlines the popularity in some tough financial times for many clubs. As for the course, I would say that this is rightly...
