I’ve reviewed courses for Top 100 Golf Courses since December 2004, an association that developed over time into me first becoming Scottish correspondent then Editor for the website. I’ve made it my business to play each and every layout in the Scottish Top 100 (as well as visiting dozens of potential chart contenders across the country) – after all, how can you possibly compare the best courses nationally if you haven’t played all of them? I make the occasional golf trip to other parts of the UK and Ireland and have been fortunate enough in the last few years to tee it up in a number of other European and African countries, courtesy of my membership of the European Golf and Travel Media Association.

Cawder (Championship) 10/10/2007

1st Glasgow - Best in Area
I played here in May 2005, using an OpenFairways card to obtain a green fee discount. As I recall, I enjoyed the layout, particularly near the end when some water came in...

Pollok 25/01/2005

4th Glasgow - Best in Area
Played the course in October 2003. What a welcome we got at the front door by the caddiemaster and the locker rooms are nothing short of sensational after a recent refurb...
