My name is Ulrich Mayring, I am based in Germany and currently play off 12. Continental and sometimes non-continental Europe are my main stomping grounds and over the years I have accumulated more than 200 course reviews. Most of them still await repurposing for this site, but performing double duty as the German Correspondent for Top 100 doesn't make the process any faster!
However, once I do get around to comment, I try to make it count. At http://gcescale.mayring.de I have described my guidelines for judging the quality of a golf course: quirk, scenery, shot values and flow. Using this system, the leaders in their respective countries turned out to be Cruden Bay, St Enodoc, Kennemer, Hamburger Golf-Club, Acquasanta, Hardelot Les Pins and Seefeld-Wildmoos. Among the modern courses my favorites are Belle Dune, Wendelinus, Le Querce, Millstätter See, Cihelny, Gerre Losone and Harre Vig.
