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 Editor-in-Chief and Founder of Top 100 Golf Courses and sometimes play to a 10 handicap.

Abama 27/03/2008

3rd Canary Islands - Best in Area 41st Spain Ranking
One word for me sums up Abama… “Oasis”. It’s a slice of tropical heaven in an otherwise barren volcanic landscape. Atlantic seaward views are stunning with the island of...

Robinson Nobilis 12/03/2007

14th Turkey Ranking
Played the Robinson Noblis in 2003 and was impressed. It's mature beyond its years due to its routing through an old pine forest. Position off the tee is the key to scori...
