26 Aug Golf World picks the best golf courses in Great Britain and Ireland.
Golf World prides itself on delivering authoritative course rankings and its GB&I Top 100 has been running for more than 25 years. For the first time this year the publication, in association with Polo Ralph Lauren, has ranked golf courses in the four home nations on an individual basis, so check below to see where our fantastic local courses have fared.
The rankings were decided by a specially-selected English panel that featured many of the country’s golfing luminaries including double Major winner Tony Jacklin, Ryder Cup star Oliver Wilson, European Tour winner Graeme Storm, broadcaster Bruce Critchley as well as leading course designers Martin Hawtree, Ross McMurray and Peter McEvoy.
The courses are ranked on a variety of factors such as aesthetic appeal, routing, conditioning and historical significance.
Of course we’ve always known that we are surrounded by the best golf courses in the UK. Now it’s confirmed with our local courses, Sunningdale Old and New and Wentworth West all listed in this year’s Golf World Top Ten.
