Top 100 Reviewers

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.

Currently spinning golf course-related takes at my Instagram.

I live in St. Charles, MO and play golf as frequently as I am able on the mediocre daily-fee layouts of the St. Louis region while maintaining an index that generally stays between 2 and 4. I write my course reviews like an engineer becaus...

BB - 71 Reviews

I was a late starter to the game and am yet to reach the single figure handicap target I’d initially set myself. The Seniors Tour debut will have to wait a little bit longer.

As a dad and a husband I am not a member of a club, I don’t have the time if I am to play lots of courses. My main goal is to play new courses and my regular playing partners are the same.

I completed playing the Top 100 in Britain and Ireland ten years ago and since then I’ve continued to play as many new courses as I can wherever I happen to be in the world.

Ivan - 56 Reviews

As a keen sportsman, hit by MS at the age of 35 (55 now) I find that golf is the best way to exercise and enjoy the outdoors, while still getting that competition. Play 4 times most weeks in the Uk, and South Africa in our winter. I play over 50 courses most years - really enjoy it. Handicap has ris...
