Top 100 Golf Courses "BiteSize" - December 2014

As another year draws to a close, we’re pleased to bring you the latest edition of our BiteSize Newsletter.

It may be mid-winter in the north but it’s mid-summer in the south and our intrepid U.S. Consultant, Fergal O’Leary, is Down Under for the entire holiday period. His golfing itinerary is truly eye-watering, tackling sixteen top ranked courses in eleven days across Australia and New Zealand. We’ll be thinking about him when he plays Kauri Cliffs on Christmas Day as he continues his quest to become the youngest person to play the Top 100 Golf Courses of the World.  

Season’s greetings from everyone at Top 100 wherever you may be.

Top 15 Golf Courses of Korea 2015

South Cape Owners Club

South Korea has produced more than its fair share of top class professional golfers in recent years, with many of them venturing away from their native land to compete in various lucrative tours around the world. Back home, they’re leaving behind a country that has expanded from a couple of dozen courses and less than a million rounds played annually in 1980 to over 400 courses and more than 25 million rounds played every year nowadays.

Top 100 Golf Courses has just reappraised its rankings for Korea and we’ve decided to increase our featured list by 50%, creating a Top 15 chart for this flourishing destination.

Golf's Royal Clubs

Golf's Royal Clubs

Architect and author Scott Macpherson, a New Zealander now living and working in Scotland, had his first golf book St Andrews: The Evolution of the Old Course published in 2007. To mark the Diamond Jubilee of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 2012, the R&A commissioned Scott to write another book about the golf clubs that have acquired their royal title from the British monarchy. The result is a lavishly photographed book crammed full of facts and figures about these special clubs, supported by course related items such as maps, scorecards and full design credit details.

Top 20 Golf Courses of Indonesia 2015

Bali National Golf Club

Top 100 Golf Courses first began ranking Indonesian courses in 2009, when Bali Golf & Country Club was placed at number 8 in the national chart. It dropped one place to number 9 when the rankings were updated two years later then it fell out of the listings altogether in 2013, due to a renovation that caused the lengthy closure of the 18-hole layout.

Now, two years further on, the revamped layout at Bali National Golf Club (the facility has been rebranded) enters the first edition of our extended Indonesian Top 20 at position number 4, the highest new entry.

Ballyliffin – a review by Javier Pintos

Ballyliffin Golf Club

If you are willing to play a true natural course, this Old course is one of the best choices you have in the world… I played a twosome with the Club Captain, Paddy, and it was nice as I was able to learn a lot about the history of the course and the club, how the new Glashedy was built, how Faldo helped and the day Rory as a young kid smashed the Glashedy course with a 66.
