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.

This is one seriously tough golf course and it's not for the feint hearted. First of all, it's long. Secondly the rough is brutal. Thirdly the greens are slick with wicke...

Sheringham 21/08/2005

3rd Norfolk - Best in Area 79th England Ranking
Ah Sheringham, a lovely course with super sea views and some testing 400-yard plus par fours. Don’t come here expecting to play a classic links, this cliff-top course has...

7th Norfolk - Best in Area
I'm not one of Dave Thomas's fans really when it comes to design, he generally creates long, heavily bunkered and frankly dull courses. Well, something went right for him...

Moortown 12/08/2005

3rd Yorkshire - Best in Area 53rd England Ranking
Moortown is certainly worth playing for just one hole, the 10th, Gibraltar, it's a simply fantastic par three. There are a couple of other good holes but there are too ma...

Loch Lomond 06/04/2005

1st Dunbartonshire - Best in Area 17th Scotland Ranking 40th Britain & Ireland Ranking
One of the best inland courses I have ever had the pleasure to play. It's a great shame that it is not open to more "ordinary" people and I'm sure if it were, it would be...

5th Angus & Dundee - Best in Area 65th Scotland Ranking
First off, I have to confess that I am a links lover, followed by heathland and then parkland etc. But I think Downfield is a cracking golf course which can hold its head...
