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.

7th United Arab Emirates Ranking 8th Middle East Ranking
Played the Majlis course in January 2001, just ahead of the Desert Classic which I watched with interest as Thomas Bjorn went on to win. Naturally I went for it on the 18...

Abaco Club 13/10/2006

2nd Bahamas Ranking 6th Caribbean Ranking
Have been fortunate enough to play this course a couple of times and it is magnificent. The holes weave up and down in a manner very reminiscent of a links course, althou...

Hardelot (Les Dunes) 09/08/2006

27th North East France - Best in Area 60th France Ranking
Les Dunes is a really enjoyable course which is much more in the mould of a Sunningdale than a Royal Birkdale. Dunes to me indicate a links course and that it is not. It...

Cedar Valley 05/07/2006

1st Antigua and Barbuda Ranking 48th Caribbean Ranking
First of all Antigua is a wonderful island as most people I'm sure would agree if they've been lucky enough to spend some time here, but Antigua hasn't yet got a really t...

Jolly Harbour 05/07/2006

2nd Antigua and Barbuda Ranking
Jolly Harbour is a pleasant enough seaside holiday course with some OK holes but it's not exciting and it doesn't get the pulse racing. I wouldn't play here ahead of the...

Hesketh 26/06/2006

14th Lancashire - Best in Area
Hesketh is a tough test but there are better courses to play in this neck of the woods. It's a shame that the property doesn't have more of the brilliant tumbling links l...

Tain 15/06/2006

16th North Scotland - Best in Area 88th Scotland Ranking
Tain, a thoroughly enjoyable course in a glorious setting, let down only by annoying military jets which seem to whizz up and down play fighting with alarming regularity....

Golspie 26/05/2006

10th North Scotland - Best in Area 63rd Scotland Ranking
Played Golspie last week and it's not in the same league as Royal Dornoch but who said it was? This is a stunning little course with probably the ugliest clubhouse I have...

Western Gailes 23/04/2006

3rd Ayrshire & Arran - Best in Area 15th Scotland Ranking 37th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Western Gailes is the understated gem of the Ayrshire coast. It doesn't have the pedigree of Turnberry, Troon or Prestwick, but in many ways Western is the best all round...
