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.
Other courses which are also featured but do not make the other two lists are; JCB, North Hants, Beaconsfield, Thorndon Park, Hadley Wood, Fairhaven and Sandiway. Prince's (Himalayas) is also included as a standalone nine-holes.
A quartet of courses that feature in both the other two lists but not here are; St. Annes Old Links, Luffenham Heath, Fulford and Cavendish.
Golf Empire founder, Ed Battye, has played all the courses on the list (except Queenwood & Beaconsfield) and below you can find links to his golf course reviews with his own personal thoughts.
