Dan Hare

I am an 10-handicap member of Les Mielles in Jersey, where I am lucky enough to be able to regularly play some great golf both on the island and in France. I'm a traditional links golf addict and have an unofficial challenge with a good friend to play all classic links courses in Britain in a few weeks per year, of course using the Top 100 Golf Courses and its informed users as our Bible!

If I could only play at one golf course for the rest of my life it would have to be Royal Dornoch (gorse controversy not withstanding) – maybe one day I would birdie Foxy?

14th Fife - Best in Area 70th Scotland Ranking
Gil Hanse has done a very good job with the land that he was given, and while it's impossible not to be aware of the flat location Craighead is a very good golf course. P...

11th North Scotland - Best in Area 69th Scotland Ranking
It's been a few years since I played here, but it is as fresh as if it were yesterday and I'm sure it hasn't changed ! They certainly couldn't build them like this any m...

Crail (Balcomie) 08/01/2020

13th Fife - Best in Area 67th Scotland Ranking
I'm surprised at some of the low rankings for Balcomie. It's definitely not a championship length course, but if I think of fun rounds of golf I've had on a traditional l...

Leven Links 08/01/2020

9th Fife - Best in Area 48th Scotland Ranking
An excellent complement to its neighbouring Lundin Links, to which it feels like the artisan club. Leven is unpretentious and a little rougher round the edges, but offers...

Like its siblings, perfectly acceptable for a society golf trip - the shuttle buses etc all work well from a few hotels - but not a destination for a two or four ball. Sl...
