Whilst the lower fifth will always be up for debate this is an ideal place to start if you are looking to play the best courses in England.
The beauty of their website is that you can dig much deeper into seven regional charts across the country if you so wish.
Comparing it to the equivalent lists from National Club Golfer and Golf World the course that immediately jumps out is the private Queenwood. Due to its limited play by the golfing public judging and ranking a course like this is not easy so fair play to Top 100 for including it. The Wisley, another very private club, is another that is on the Top 100 website list but not on the other two lists.
Other courses which are also featured but do not make the other two lists are; North Hants, Thorndon Park, Hadley Wood, Crowborough Beacon, Northants County, Moor Park (High), Close House (Colt) and Sandiway.
A number of courses that feature in both the other two lists but not here are; Kington, Seascale, Cleeve Hill, Prestbury, Berkhamsted, St. Annes Old Links, Thorpeness, Luffenham Heath and Centurion.
Golf Empire founder, Ed Battye, has played all the courses on the list (98 out of 100) and below you can find links to his golf course reviews with his own personal thoughts.
