T P Dean

I'm a member of Hindhead Golf Club, located in the heathland belt of Surrey. Playing to a single figure handicap, most of my golf experience has been limited to the UK and Ireland, of which I've played around half of the top 100 courses. I wouldn't consider myself a list chaser, just a fan of great golf. So with that, Top100golfcourses.com has been a wonderful reference tool over the years. My bias is strongly towards links golf, although I have a passion for heathland golf too. And if the course is quirky, undulating and has some great views, then you're starting to mix some of my favourite ingredients.

2nd Cornwall - Best in Area 66th England Ranking
Perranporth. What a roller coaster ride. Be sure to visit Perranporth wearing your best suit of armour and come prepared for the battle as this course is routed across so...

Rye (Old) 28/08/2019

2nd Sussex - Best in Area 24th England Ranking 53rd Britain & Ireland Ranking
Rye was Harry Colt’s first design but due to the original course being played over the busy road to Camber Sands, today’s routing is very different from when he first des...

West Lancs is a beautifully pristine links, in the brilliant condition that you’d expect of an Open venue so it’s no wonder this place is often used for final qualifying....

Stoneham 08/08/2019

3rd Hampshire - Best in Area 81st England Ranking
Positioned in the middle of a horseshoe of where the M3 and the M27 motorways collide, Stoneham’s location is an odd one. You wouldn’t choose to build a golf course in an...

If you listen to the rhetoric coming out of golf organisations recently about the diminishing numbers taking up golf due to the length of time it takes to play, short cou...

Goswick 15/07/2019

1st Northumberland - Best in Area 86th England Ranking
A stone’s throw short of the border near the holy island of Lindisfarne lies Goswick, a tremendous little links course that warrants a stop-off if you’re making the long...

Ferndown (Old) 21/05/2019

4th Dorset - Best in Area 52nd England Ranking
Albeit flatter and more tree-lined than its neighbours at nearby Parkstone and Broadstone, Ferndown is another Dorset heathland gem. It must be a great course to be a mem...

Cleeve Hill 13/02/2019

6th Gloucestershire - Best in Area
Let’s make no mistake here, Cleeve Hill is municipal golf. The course is scruffy and tatty, basically being shared farmland where sheep graze and maintenance is minimal....

Wrotham Heath 19/10/2018

22nd Kent - Best in Area
Whilst it’s never going to be on the radar for the bucket-list golfer, Wrotham Heath is an enjoyable, sporty course and offers much more to a visiting golfer than what yo...

I played Formby earlier last month when two months of hot sun had proceeded my visit and baked out the course to a parched brown colour. Through a combination of these co...

Worplesdon 07/06/2018

9th Surrey - Best in Area 30th England Ranking 71st Britain & Ireland Ranking
Worplesdon was the missing piece in my 3W jigsaw, so obvious comparisons were made during the round with nearby Woking and West Hill. One immediate area where Worplesdon...
