Top 100 Golf Courses "BiteSize" - May 2015

May has been a busy month for many Top 100 contributors. Our Editor continues to visit Scotland’s lesser-known gems, coupled with a long overdue look at the Trump International Golf Links at Balmedie. Even our Editor-in-Chief managed to dust off his clubs and play both courses at Saunton this month. Hopefully you are also managing to play some top golf courses. If so, we look forward to reading your reviews.

Fergal Makes History

This summer, Dublin-native Fergal O’Leary will prove the catch phrase ‘luck of the Irish’ and become the youngest man in history to play the World’s Top 100 Golf Courses. The 32-year old will conclude his quest at the Durban Country Club in South Africa this August.

The 3 Royals Adventure

Javier Pintos, our Argentine Correspondent, visited England’s Golf Coast last summer. With Rory McIlroy’s win at Royal Liverpool still echoing around the north west, our intrepid reporter travelled from Buenos Aires to play three of England’s current Open rota courses in just three days. “It was not just playing golf, it was more of an adventure due to the long flight and the short time I had in Liverpool to complete this trip.”

Top 10 Golf Courses in Nottinghamshire 2015

Notts Golf Club, or Hollinwell as it is so called because there is a holy well located amongst the trees close to the 8th fairway, is one of the county’s oldest clubs. This unique golf course not only heads our Nottinghamshire Best In County table, but also occupies a lofty position within our Britain & Ireland rankings. However, if you think Nottinghamshire is all about one course, then think again. This county has serious strength. Although Notts is our undisputed No.1, Sherwood Forest Golf Club is not that far behind.

Top 30 Golf Courses in Hertfordshire 2015

Our re-ranking process involved polling every club in Hertfordshire and we were overwhelmed by a response rate of more than 50%. It took significant time to collate and process the data, which resulted in a number of moves, but our top two Hertfordshire courses remain unchanged. The Grove continues to be well supported and was a favourite for some, but Ashridge once again emerged as the clear winner. The Centurion Club makes a positive two-place upward move, as does the revitalised Hanbury Manor, which moves to 8th spot.

Top 10 Golf Courses in Norfolk 2015

Royal West Norfolk and Hunstanton are jewels in the crown of Norfolk golf and both (while very different links experiences) are not only friendly rivals, but also golfing household names. Keep heading eastwards along the coast and you’ll come to Sheringham Golf Club where there’s a fine cliff edge course that’s often incorrectly labelled as a links. Its next-door neighbour, Royal Cromer, is also perched on the cliffs and these two clubs share a similar rivalry to that of Hunstanton and Brancaster.
