There are tens of thousands of golf course reviews posted on the Top 100 website and there are more than ten thousand course reviewers registered on our database. This page is dedicated to the Top 100 Reviewers who have posted the most golf course reviews. The page excludes reviews from core members of the Top 100 team.

If you would like to have a say and become a Top 100 Golf Course Reviewer, all you need to do is to fill out a simple form to create a personal account – Join Top 100 – and you’re on your way.

After you have joined Top 100, simply click on Write a review for xxx (where xxx is the course name) within any golf course page and follow the simple steps. We recommend you compose your review first in a document editor and then simply copy and paste your review words into the comments box. You will then need to consider your rating for the golf course.

Our simple and unique rating system allows course ratings on a scale of 1 to 6 golf balls. We have set no specific rules for you to follow when you rate a course except that you (the reviewer) must have played the course first. Important factors, such as course location, condition (or presentation), difficulty and historical importance are left for you, the reviewer, to judge. However, we do ask you to adhere to our Rating Scale guidelines.

The quality of course reviews posted on Top 100 Golf Courses is remarkable. Unlike almost every other review website, our editorial team reads each review and from time to time we run competitions and award prizes for the best reviews. Terms and Conditions apply.
