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?

I've played the Eden several times now, and to echo the other reviewers it would be foolish to overlook what is the best value course in the Town - on a fine day, it's an...

Wick 19/03/2019

27th North Scotland - Best in Area
We played Wick several years ago, but I remember it very clearly, which is clearly a good sign. Like many links it's much better than it appears from the road as you dri...
