    West Hill still in there I see.

  • Golf Predictor

    Nice to see my home club sneaking in there at 99!

  • Tony

    Hindhead is a very nice days golf, but the reason it never makes a top 100 spot in respected top100’s is because it has no technical design. It’s beautiful, it’s always in great condition, but, it is route one golf and does not ask a skilled golfer to hit a range of diverse golf shots, unlike the 3 W’s, Liphook or even Blackmoor, or for that matter any quality Colt/Mackenzie course.

  • Tony

    At last Burnham and Berrow is rated above Saunton, the first time in the UK and Ireland this has happened and I totally agree.

  • I highly recomend you Club Choice to book great trips to Irland.

  • JCB Lay

    Dukes St Andrews? Spey Valley? Hayling? Hindhead? Otherwise all very good!

  • JCB Lay

    Hindhead is a big omission from this list, Easily as good as Woking, Worplesdon, Westhill, West sussex, and Liphook. JCB Lay

  • Jim Loy

    Highly rated Gailes Links has been selected by the R&A as the only course in Scotland to host the final OPEN qualifying for 4 years
