Stuart Eastwood

Kenya based, ageing fast, a septuagenarian golfer now playing off 16, still bent on completing the Top 100 in the British Isles with just a few to go. Have I left the best til last? Loch Lomond. Machrie, 2 x Machrihanish?

My '18’ favourites? That’s hard but maybe… Royal County Down, Kingsbarns, Castle Stuart, North Berwick, both Sunningdale courses, Waterville, Tralee, Saunton East, Royal West Norfolk, Alwoodley, Enniscrone, Rosapenna, Burnham & Berrow, The Addington, Swinley Forest and for its history, Prestwick.

The one course that I feel should appear in the top 100? Dooks… a lovely links amid fantastic views. Seriously underrated IMO.

And the best outside the British Isles? Augusta. Now that was day well spent!

Not to be missed... and outstanding golf course and well worth playing. Loved it. Would play it again if I had the chance. Everything was perfect.

5th Kerry - Best in Area 26th Ireland Ranking
Why Dooks does not appear in the BI Top 100 is a mystery to me. Having played all but 6 of the current list, I can name at least half a dozen courses that do not come clo...

3rd Kerry - Best in Area 15th Ireland Ranking 65th Britain & Ireland Ranking
There is no golf course in the world that beats the scenery of Tralee. For that reason alone, it is a must play. The first nine is decent, not fantastic. It is the sec...

3rd Kenya Ranking
Without doubt the best of the Nairobi courses (and there are some good ones too) and home to the Kenya Open at the moment. Usually in very good condition.
