Keith Baxter

My love affair with golf courses started more than thirty years ago. I’ve lost count of the number of different courses I’ve played down the years, but I have golfed across four continents and have played more than 90 courses in the Britain & Ireland Top 100. I’ve negotiated thousands of ordinary golf holes over the years and hundreds that are truly excellent, but many memorable experiences involved playing average golf courses in wonderful company. I’m the Founder of Top 100 Golf Courses and sometimes play to a 10 handicap.

Luffenham Heath 13/11/2004

1st Leicestershire & Rutland - Best in Area
Luffenham Heath is a pretty course set on high ground and in many ways it is reminiscent of Gog Magog. The main difference is that Gog Magog plays on free-draining chalk...

3rd Cork - Best in Area 37th Ireland Ranking
Played Fota Island on a trip which also included Old Head and in many ways, I found Fota a better test of golf, although Old Head obviously has the location to die for. E...

Dunbar 05/10/2004

6th Lothians - Best in Area 39th Scotland Ranking
Dunbar should be on your play list, just as Muirfield and North Berwick will be for any serious golfing trip to East Lothian. The first two holes and the last are certain...

1st Cambridgeshire - Best in Area
An unusually hilly course for Cambridgeshire with some great views, especially from the 13th across the University City to Ely cathedral beyond (on a clear day). The Old...

1st West Wales - Best in Area 7th Wales Ranking
An enjoyable and unusual links course which left me feeling a tad disappointed considering its lofty reputation. It felt a little claustrophopic in places - greens and te...

Southerndown 17/09/2004

3rd South Wales - Best in Area 6th Wales Ranking
You feel on top of the world here at Southerndown - the course is really exposed to the elements. Watch out for the sheep - they never respond to "fore". The views from t...

Ashburnham 17/09/2004

2nd West Wales - Best in Area 8th Wales Ranking
Ashburnham is about as tough as it gets - especially when the wind blows. This is a man-sized test of golf and memorable too. The greens are tough to hold and even toughe...

Ipswich (Purdis Heath) 08/09/2004

1st Suffolk - Best in Area 48th England Ranking
It's quite a surprise to find a little Sunningdale on the edge of Ipswich. Purdis Heath is a real beauty, a hidden treasure if ever there was one. It's a James Braid clas...
