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.

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...

Hunstanton 19/05/2018

2nd Norfolk - Best in Area 28th England Ranking 69th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Once you’ve genuinely caught the bug for links golf, the treelined parkland variety just somehow feels inferior. Hunstanton is everything I’d expect of a traditional link...

There are a lot of positives that can be said about the course at Beau Desert as it makes a rise and fall through the outskirts of Cannock Chase, an Area of Outstanding N...

Sheringham 24/04/2018

3rd Norfolk - Best in Area 79th England Ranking
Firstly, I have to point out that Sheringham is not a links. I’m struggling to understand why a number of reviewers are insisting that it is. The turf doesn’t compress li...

Royal West Norfolk 18/04/2018

1st Norfolk - Best in Area 17th England Ranking 43rd Britain & Ireland Ranking
Royal West Norfolk, or Brancaster as it’s known to the locals is a completely unique experience and something I’d recommend as a “must play” for all keen links golfers. B...

For my money, the golf available in Dorset stands up to some of the best that heathland golf has to offer in the whole of England, and there are two Dorset courses that c...

Hayling 06/07/2017

2nd Hampshire - Best in Area 65th England Ranking
Since Hayling Golf Club doesn’t sit within an area renowned for links courses such as Kent or Southport, it unjustly goes relatively unnoticed. That’s a real shame becaus...
