Ballyliffin (Glashedy)
We played both courses in consecutive days, Old on a Tuesday and Glashedy on a Wednesday on this really fantastic 36 holes facility. Again I was honored to play with Paddy the captain on Old and with
Ardglass
I was told some months before going, when some customers came back, that the course was not that good despite 5 great starting holes and a couple more that were worth. I have to say unfortunately tota
Mission Hills (Olazabal)
The Olazabal course at Mission Hills Golf Club has numerous majestic vistas of untouched jungle. Natural lakes and streams create an outstanding backdrop throughout the course. The undulating concave
Ulzama
Ulzama is without any doubt one of the best courses in Northern Spain, and one of the most outstanding works of Javier Arana, the architect of El Saler, Valencia. It is located in an impressive forest
Woodhall Spa (Hotchkin)
Although a nice course its ridiculous to put the Hotchin in the top 100 courses in the world. There are some very good holes and they have made the best of the very flat Lincolnshire land but I al
Visby
​As a member at Visby, I have, as I write this, played the course 435 times since it was reopened after the rebuild in 2009.​ It is nothing short of FANTASTIC, and offers new challenges ev

El Saler is set in a natural landscape of great beauty, Albufera Natural Park, where the mediteranean forest meets the sea through a large natural lake which communicates with the same Mediterranean.
Shanghai Links
Shanghai Links Golf & Country Club is a seaside course laid out on flat terrain along the Yangtze River. Some tees and greens are elevated, providing minor ups & downs through the course. Wind pl

I had arranged for a large group of us to play the course and ended up having one of the worst experiences and embarrassments possible. The course was in poor condition, our times weren't booked in th
Woodbridge (Heath)
I finally decided to make the long four hour drive to Woodbridge on a bright autumnal day and found it to be an absolute pleasure from start to finish. The course is a par 70 measuring almost 6,300 ya

Kingswood Golf & Country Club
Played the course yesterday after they had had to close the front nine on the Friday due to heavy rain. To the greenkeepers' credit, you wouldn't have noticed the difference between the front and back
Streamsong (Red)
Played the Red on 8th December 2014, on setting off from the first my 4 ball were not overly impressed as the course appeared ragged round the edges. Then after a few holes it dawned on us that maybe
Atlantic
I did it! What an accomplishment! There have been days when I thought this 10-year journey would never end. My quest ended at Atlantic Golf Club on Long Island in Bridgehampton. Designed in 1992 by Re
Winged Foot (West)
A couple weeks ago during an amazing golf tour I had the distinct honor of playing Winged Foot. What a special place enriched in golf history. Winged Foot has hosted several major tournaments in its h
Baltimore (East)
Baltimore Country Club was designed by A.W Tillinghast, who had several courses on the Top 100. He is also credited with Bethpage Black, but recent evidence seems to refute that. He most certainly des

Queenstown (Kelvin Heights)
There’s not really too much to add to my review of 17 Feb 2011 (see below). This is a solid, enjoyable and extremely scenic course, and a reasonable test too, especially if the wind gets up. The cours
Jockey Club Kau Sai Chau (North)
The North course is excellent, making full use of the natural terrain with great views. It is as if the designer, Gary Player, was asking each golfer at each hole “How should you attack this hole
Florida, Country Club of
I was shocked at how great this course was and how I had never heard of it as I live only a few miles away. The greens putt true and the rough can be quite penalizing at times. The clubhouse and ma
North Palm Beach
An elite course that maybe doesn't get its due. Playing this course right now is both fun and challenging. The landing areas allow for errant drives to be corrected, but the greens are as penalizin
Winged Foot (West)
Several years after I played Winged Foot East, I finally got an invitation to play the West course…

The average green at Winged Foot is 5,100 square feet, small by today’s standards. In his bo
Clearwater Bay
The course at Clearwater Bay is located on a remote rock outcrop at the southernmost part of the Sai Kung peninsula on the cliff top along the coastline. The scenery seen from the course is breathtaki
Homestead (Cascades)
It’s a challenge to get to the Homestead if you don’t live within driving distance of it. We flew to Roanoke and then drove an hour-and-a-half to get there. But it was well worth the time and effort,
Quarry at La Quinta
Along with Double Eagle in Columbus, Ohio, the Quarry at La Quinta may be one of the best conditioned courses I’ve ever played. Most greens in the West are bent grass; most greens in Florida are Bermu
Discovery Bay (Diamond & Ruby)
Discovery Bay is a challenging course located on a hill along the coastline of Lantau Island, which is the largest island in Hong Kong. The course is well designed on difficult terrain and it provides
Wade Hampton
Wade Hampton is in Cashiers, North Carolina, where the rich of Atlanta, eastern Tennessee, and Florida come to escape the summer heat. It’s another fine fall day, and Wade Hampton is another fabulous
Hindhead
Finally a review for one of my very favourite unsung courses. Front nine here is staggering. As good as anywhere outside the top 3 or 4 inland courses nationally. Gorgeously framed shots through and s
Grandfather
It’s a beautiful day in the Allegheny Mountains of North Carolina. We’re in Linville, home of Grandfather Mountain Golf & Country Club at the base of Grandfather Mountain. It took us a few hours to dr
Fishers Island
Fishers Island was designed by Seth Raynor in 1926. Similar to Shoreacres and Camargo, the course features those trademark Seth Raynor greens that almost look like they are sitting up on benches. Yet
Hong Kong (New)
The New course is flatter than the Eden course; it’s also the longest of the three courses at Hong Kong Golf Club and the most pleasant one to play. The trees on the New are fully mature and give the
Hong Kong (Eden)
The Hong Kong Golf Club has three 18-hole courses, the Old, New & Eden courses. The Eden is short; 6,060 yards for par 70 but many holes are intimidating because there are narrow fairways and big
Shoreacres
Big greens are a prominent feature of Raynor’s courses; his greens often are square or rectangular in shape and sit on raised plateaus that appear flat, or almost flat, at first glance. Looks, however
Merion (East)
Being a true lover of links golf and a member of a wonderful links course I’ve always maintained that my least favorite type of course is parkland and true to form most parkland courses in the US whil
Victoria National
Victoria National is one of the courses that I was able to get on with a phone call from the pro at my club. It was founded by Terry Friedman, who had bought a former coal mine with a golf course in m
Clandeboye (Dufferin)
The Dufferin course at Clandeboye is a good golf course with some interesting holes such as Clandeboye (Dufferin) Golf Course - Photo by reviewer
Portstewart (Strand)
The first 9 holes in Portstewart have nothing to envy to other famous courses such as Royal County Down and Royal Portrush. Among these giant dunes the sense of isolation I experienced was unparallele
Ballycastle
We played a fourball in Ballycastle one afternoon last August after 18 holes in Portstewart. Ballycastle Golf Course - Photo by reviewer
Hirsala
Played this course a while ago. Very beautiful site and the course sits well in it. As a Swede, both the layout and the site itself reminded me a lot of Vidbynäs North. Played on a weekday, so the mo
Silloth on Solway
I returned to Silloth today - eight years after my last visit - in expectation of a decent winter’s day out on the links under sunny blue skies and I’m glad to report that neither the course nor the w
Bethpage (Black)
When I finally got to the front of the line, at 6:00 a.m., I had a 10:30 time and four-and-a-half hours to kill. I made friends with the starter as best I could (he was a busy guy), and at 10, there w
Rio Real
A massive disappointment due to the state of the greens which were universally awful. Work is planned to improve them but there is a huge amount of work needed to bring this report course up to a dece
Shadow Creek (North)
I know that feeling of anticipation well. In 1989, Shadow Creek debuted at No.8, the highest debut in the history of the Top 100. The course was dreamed up by casino guru Steve Wynn and designed by To
Royal Portrush (Valley)
The Valley Couse usually goes unnoticed by many visitors, attracted by the fame of Dunluce. However, we can say, without Royal Portrush (Valley) Golf Course - Photo by reviewer
Colonial
This club is the home of the annual Colonial Invitational. Annika Sorenstam played against the men here and just barely missed the cut. (I’m sure you read about it – it was covered ad nauseam.) Most i
Southern Hills Country Club
Perry Maxwell designed Southern Hills, and he excels at making a course look easy and play hard. The course was rated No.25 on the Golf Digest list. During the summer of 1999, just two years before th
Sanctuary
The Sanctuary has no members and no public play. So, how exactly do you arrange to play the course? The Sanctuary’s owners Dave and Gail Liniger are founders of RE/MAX Realty. Why not just call Dave L
Royal Liverpool
I played here on Wednesday and had a thoroughly enjoyable round. If I'm honest I will a little underwhelmed with the course, I played Hillside the day after and found it visually more appealing and
La Manga (West)
I was most impressed with this course. It is a delight on the eye which is a marked change from the other two courses here. Its true that you dont need driver on any holes except the 18th (more of whi
Littlestone
Visited Littlestone in the last week of October for the first time and was impressed with this jolly course. After a gentle opening hole this is a course that appears to build as your round progresse
Wilmington (South)
Howdy had many Palmer tales to tell. The best story was about the day Arnie shot a hole-in-one with him at Wilmington Country Club; Howdy told it as we stood on the 13th tee where it happened. (It is
Royal County Down (Championship)
No doubt that RCD is a very special golf course, set at an almost unparalleled scenery and most of the holes are very original. That said, I agree with a previous post that it is too complicated for
Crosswater

Vinpearl - Nha Trang
I played this course on a 3 weeks trip to Vietnam with friends in jan 2012. It is spectacular in every sense. First of all we arrived at the 1st Tee via a private speed boat & a ‘stretched’ golf buggy
Bandon Dunes (Bandon Dunes)
Bandon Dunes feels like a Scottish links course, as well it should. It was designed by an unknown Scottish architect named David McLay Kidd (his father was a golf course manager at Gleneagles in Scotl
Trump International Golf Links, Aberdeen
I had the pleasure of playing this fantastic golf course on Monday 24th November. The layout of the course is incredible, and compares with anything I have played. Considering this course is only 3
Cruden Bay
I returned to play Cruden Bay for the second time in mid-September. Weather conditions were excellent and the course was in very good condition with what seemed like unusually verdant rough for this
Peachtree
It seems to be a Bobby Jones weekend. But how could it be anything else, since Atlanta was the man’s home. It is another glorious day in Atlanta. I am staying in a northern suburb, socially and econom
East Lake
As I approached the course in my rental car, you could see that the club and surrounding grounds had a spanking new look that contrasted with a neighborhood in transition. The more I learned about how

Laurel Valley
It was just Jeff, me, and our caddie, Brian. Brian was a 4 handicap and had caddied for Arnold Palmer dozens of times. He’d even played a few rounds of golf with Arnie. He was a great caddie and made
Aldeburgh
This is a very fine heathland golf course, longer than its 'card' suggests, maybe because of the quirk that it has no par 5's so its long 4's are very challenging. The fairway playing surfaces are sup
Kiawah Island Resort (Ocean)
We played the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island near Charleston, South Carolina, USA this month (Nov. 2014). Pete Dye designed the course in 1989-90, I believe, to host the 1991 Ryder Cup Matches. It is a
Double Eagle
Double Eagle is known for its superior condition, and I would wholeheartedly agree with that assessment. It felt like we were walking on plush carpet for 18 holes. The greens are true and quick. There
Valhalla
One call from my pro and we had a tee time at Valhalla, the site of the 1996 PGA Championship. It took us about three hours to fly to Louisville, Kentucky, where we got a courtesy car from the airport
Sand Hills
Sand Hills is all about the golf. “Golf courses are built for many reasons,” Bill Coore said over lunch months later. “The main ones are demographically driven: to support real-estate development or p
Trump International (Championship) - West Palm Beach
good track similar to Shadow Creek from Vegas. Trump spends money and keeps the courses in good condition.
Mountain Lake
A true hidden gem that doesn't get talked about too much. I loved the square greens and bunkers....biarritz, redan, and a fairly good amount of hills for the middle of florida.
Bear's Club
Very upscale and manicured golf course
Baltusrol (Lower)
Baltusrol holds a cherished place in golf’s rich history. It has hosted 16 national championships. The giants of golf have walked its fairways for more than a hundred years: Bobby Jones was here. So,
Shoal Creek
Shoal Creek hosted the 1984 and 1990 PGA Championships; the 1990 Championship brought notoriety to the club that it much rather would have avoided. A month before the championship, Hall Thompson, foun
Pennard
I’ve had the good fortune to play some fabulous links golf courses including, Royal County Down, Royal Portrush, Royal Birkdale and Royal Porthcawl. Now I’m not saying that Pennard is in the same lea
Country Club, Brookline (Clyde & Squirrel)
It was very windy (two to three clubs of wind) the day I played the Country Club, but I had an excellent front nine. I shot 40, followed by a 46 on the back nine for an 86 on the day. Then Ed showed m
Salem
Salem Country Club was designed by Donald Ross. I’m usually not a big Donald Ross fan, but there are two or three of his courses I really like and Salem is one of them. Ross must have spent a lot of t
Pine Valley
Pine Valley. . . Where to start. I believe when reviewing PV one must first state, and understand, the level it is being rated at, and the courses it is being ranked against. PV appears at #1 in the v
Golf Club
The Golf Club was founded in 1967 by Fred Jones. Rumour has it that Jones wanted to get into Scioto but couldn’t get an invitation, so he decided to build his own club and hired a virtually unknown Pe
Platja de Pals
Excellent Golf Course. Last time I played was october the 26th. Fairways & greens where cleaned and fast. Pay attention to 7th left dog leg hole, a wrong club choice at the tee, could make you in tro
Canterbury Golf Club - Ohio
The greens were in beautiful condition with very subtle and hard-to-read breaks. The front nine was the warm up to a hilly and exciting back nine with some great holes and elevation changes. Number 16
Crans-sur-Sierre
Crans-sur-Sierre in the Swiss Alps is without doubt one of most stunning locations in world golf. As the course is perched high upon a 1500 metre plateau, it can be very difficult to tear your eyes aw
Thornhill Golf & Country Club
Thornhill is an exceptional course laid out near the heart of a bustling city. Though not often talked about, Thornhill is a hidden gem and is a Stanley Thompson masterpiece. While not as long as some

I was really looking forward to playing Anfi having read the great reviews. Unfortunately it ended up being a disappointing experience. We turned up nice and early to warm up properly only to be
Llavaneras
Llavaneras is worth a visit – here is a Spanish course in easy reach of Barcelona with some history (opened in 1945) and it is not like many of the newer courses of the country which can be set-up to
Thorndon Park

I was the only one there, save a couple of employees. The sun, a massive orange ball, greeted me as it rose slowly over the end of Long Island. I took my time touring the locker room’s photos and view
St George's Golf & Country Club - Ontario
Both times that I have played at St. George's have been excellent experiences. The conditioning of the course was fantastic with some of the fastest greens I have putted on. Though neither time, I pla
Muskoka Bay
Muskoka Bay is probably the best public golf course in Ontario. The course is difficult but very dramatic and extremely fun. The highlight of playing Muskoka Bay is definitely being able to see (and h
Bayview
Bayview is a great course which is always impeccable condition. It has a good routing as well as excellent staff and facilities. Currently, it is undergoing renovations to update the irrigation system
East Sussex National (West)
I remember making the trip to play here when the courses first opened in 1990 to great fanfare. The much anticipated opening was big news back then. Billed as England's Augusta, no expense was spared
Grand Lucayan (Reef)
The Reef course is heading in the same direction as its sister course, the Dick Wilson-designed Lucayan, which closed. I stayed at the Grand Lucayan Beach & Golf Resort and frankly they would do thems
Garden City
There are three rules at Garden City: 1. No women; 2. Wear a sport coat in the clubhouse; 3. No cell phones on the course. That’s it! Anything else goes. Word has it that no one cares whether or not y
Spey Bay
Its been a few years since I last played Spey Bay and it is always nice to play so close to the sea, however my visit was somewhat overshadowed by how much the course/club has changed (for the worse),
Isla Canela
A group of us from Gloucestershire have been going over every December for the last 10 years or so to play for a week on the “Spanish Algarve” and always play Isla Canela at least once. Handicaps 5-20
Salobre (South)
A short but tight layout set in a valley with holiday villas on both sides (fortunately far enough back that they don't entrude on the course). We played in early November, which seems a good time of
Harbour Town
I had heard from several locals that the course would be in terrible shape, and parts of it were, but most of it was fine. The day was overcast and rain was predicted, but as I stood on the first tee
Ferndown (Old)
Played Ferndown a couple of weeks ago in glorious autumn sunshine. Received a warm welcome from all and knew from walking onto the first tee I was in for a treat. The course was in superb order and ha
Thracian Cliffs
Given its spectacular setting and the glorious weather my group enjoyed it sounds almost churlish of me to disagree with these other reviews of fulsome praise for the course. But disagree I must.

Burnham & Berrow (Championship)
The first tee gives you a small hint of what’s in store as their appears to be only a slither of fairway available to hit.... it’s no illusion! Lots of drives requiring total accuracy or you will lik
