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.

Arabella 21/04/2014

3rd Western Cape - Best in Area 10th South Africa Ranking
A highly ranked course in the country and rightly so; there are some places on the course that are as good as anywhere. This estate is in a great location right on the ‘B...

Bedford & County 19/03/2014

4th Bedfordshire - Best in Area
The county of Bedfordshire is one that is not blessed with real stand-out courses but it is great to see the Top 10 featured here. This club has a healthy membership and...

Disney (Lake Buena Vista) 07/03/2014

95th Florida - Best in Area
In a similar style to Disney’s Palm course, this experience should give you golf with a smile on your face as it is very easy to get drawn into the Disney spirit. I would...

Disney (Palm) 09/02/2014

99th Florida - Best in Area
“Welcome to the happiest place on turf” is the warm welcome at the Disney courses – not too sure about happiest but it is certainly great fun. Disney courses should not b...

3rd Florida - Best in Area 55th USA Ranking 63rd North America Ranking
Great anticipation ahead of playing here as I had heard and read some great opinions over the last year or so since opening. First thing to mention is that if you are sta...

Lumine (Lakes) 10/01/2014

22nd Northern Spain - Best in Area
The Lakes course is a similar looking course to some of those in Dubai with plenty of bold bunkering that is very visual from the tee boxes. Around five years old now and...

Lumine (Hills) 10/01/2014

11th Northern Spain - Best in Area 40th Spain Ranking
So many fantastic holes on the Hills course make me say that this one of my favourites on the Costa Daurada, probably along with Bonmont my pick in the area. The biggest...

Sweetwoods Park 18/12/2013

17th Sussex - Best in Area
Sweetwoods Park is a welcome addition to the Top 100 site. The course opened back in the boom-time of the 90’s (1994) but it is the new ownership in recent years that has...

Effingham 08/12/2013

24th Surrey - Best in Area
A lot of fun at Effingham and pretty easy off of the tee (which helps) on most holes but it is great to see the course now as part of the county listing. As we know Surre...

Bonmont 28/11/2013

10th Northern Spain - Best in Area 37th Spain Ranking
Bonmont delivers what many other courses try to deliver but fail to do – this is a course that is undoubtedly great fun, top-end quality and also a serious challenge for...

Penati (Heritage) 27/11/2013

1st Slovakia Ranking 93rd Continental Europe Ranking
After seeing the course only months after opening, it is clear that the potential to mature into a European big hitter is a ‘when’ and not an ‘if’. The resort has the Leg...

I have now played ‘Bucks’ four times over the last ten years and right now I would say the presentation and conditioning is a good as ever, certainly the greens were espe...

Emporda (Forest) 27/11/2013

7th Northern Spain - Best in Area 30th Spain Ranking
Given the chance to play one round at Emporda, I would choose the Forest over the Links every time. For me it is a better looking course with so many tree line holes that...

Penati (Legend) 21/11/2013

2nd Slovakia Ranking
A very good looking course that has obviously had a big budget to make it look very good right from the off – I played in late summer 2013 just over a year after opening...

Emporda (Links) 18/11/2013

Currently (Nov '13) this course has a decent ranking (#16 in Spain), one of the reasons to play it obviously. I think I will keep this review fairly short as anything len...

England’s newest course and this arrives with a lot of anticipation of being one of the very best new builds in recent years. I was lucky enough to play on a hot sunny Au...
