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.
