Top 100 Golf Courses "BiteSize" Newsletter - October 2014

A lot has happened since we issued our first BiteSize Newsletter last month and we’re pleased to bring you our latest edition.

As autumn closes in for those in the northern hemisphere, spring is already in the air for those lucky golfers in the south. 

Happy golfing from everyone at the Top 100 Team wherever you are in the world.

A Golfer's Dream

A Golfer's Dream

A golfer’s dream by Larry Berle tells the story about his extraordinary adventure that spanned 10 years, a journey which somehow transported him to the first tee at each and every one of America’s Top 100 golf courses.

This September, we asked Larry if he would rate the U.S. Top 100 for us using our simple 1-6 golf ball rating system. Larry agreed and also allowed us to post online a series of exclusive reviews, which are edited extracts from his book. For the next 100 days there will be one of Larry’s reviews posted on the Top 100 website.

English Best In County Rankings Update

Northwood Golf Club

In May 2011 we announced that we were extending our rankings to focus on Best In County golf courses. Since the launch, we've received a fair amount of criticism, stating that our rankings at English County level require an overhaul. Some say we're missing some of the county's best courses, while others suggest we're ranking courses that simply do not deserve to be placed.

Teeing It High In Switzerland

Verbier Golf Club

When the invitation arrived on the Top 100 desk to sample the golf and culture of the Swiss Alps as part of a small media group, Brian jumped at the opportunity without hesitation. Switzerland may not be a top-of-the-list destination for many travelling golfers, but there is more than enough going on in the area to keep both the golfer and non-golfer entertained.

Suffolk Punches Well Above Its Weight

Ipswich (Purdis Heath)

Our English Best In County rankings review continues with Suffolk, in East Anglia, second on our list.

The Top 4 remain unchanged, although the gap between our No.1 Purdis Heath and our No.2 Aldeburgh has closed even more tightly. The Heath course at Woodbridge came out a clear third ahead of Thorpeness. However, from position five onwards, it’s all change.
