5.0 out of 5 stars Top 100 Golf Courses - Top Book
A beautifully packaged account of the 100 best golf courses in the UK and Ireland. This is a well photographed and well researched book which is a perfect addition to any golfers collection of literature about the game. It is concise yet detailed, with an interesting mix of the authors considered views merged with the opinions of the many who visit the website. An ideal...

3.0 out of 5 stars OK read, but mainly for the low handicappers
As a retired person with a high-ish handicap, many of these courses are 'pie in the sky' for me. It's Ok to fantasize I suppose. The best part of the book were the actual player reviews (the first descriptions were a bit bland, giving an "Oh! they're all brilliant, are they?" effect) and the 'nearly top 100' courses - much more likely to appeal to me to play. We...

5.0 out of 5 stars Top 100 Golf Courses - Top Book, 9 Sep 2005
This review is from: Top 100 Golf Courses of the British Isles (Hardcover)
A beautifully packaged account of the 100 best golf courses in the UK and Ireland. This is a well photographed and well researched book which is a perfect addition to any golfers collection of literature about the game. It is concise yet detailed, with an interesting mix of the authors considered views merged with the opinions of the many who visit the website. An ideal buy for anybody visiting the UK wishing to play the best courses and some of the hidden gems, but also a great read for those who want to enjoy a society day or as a supporting guide for a holiday. I could imagine it making a great stocking filler at xmas for any golfer. Great value.

5.0 out of 5 stars One for golf course lovers, 24 Aug 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Top 100 Golf Courses of the British Isles (Hardcover)
Picked this title up at Aberdovey GC and I haven't been able to put it down since. The honest reviews from real golfers are great to read and I have to say in the most part these reviews are accurate. Some of the pictures are brilliant and others are OK but that's because most of the photos are not the work of professional golf course photographers. It could do with a map for travelling golfers showing where the courses are in relation to each other but apart from that it's a nice book and one which will appeal to golfers who like playing different courses.

Really good book this one - different to the usual guides. This one actually looks as though it has been written by golfers for golfers rather than an imaginary panel somewhere ..... Worht buying ...

This review is from: Top 100 Golf Courses of the British Isles (Hardcover)
As a retired person with a high-ish handicap, many of these courses are 'pie in the sky' for me. It's Ok to fantasize I suppose. The best part of the book were the actual player reviews (the first descriptions were a bit bland, giving an "Oh! they're all brilliant, are they?" effect) and the 'nearly top 100' courses - much more likely to appeal to me to play. We are planning a venture into a couple of 'must play' reasonably priced courses, and this did help us confirm our preferences, apart from that - 'pass'.

5.0 out of 5 stars top 100 golf courses of GB, 22 July 2010
This review is from: Top 100 Golf Courses of the British Isles (Hardcover)
Lovely book with beautiful pictures. It brought back a lot of memories. I now live in France and it was so nostalgic to see the courses I used to play.
