Not many after 40 years of playing but don't really care as I'm a member of one.

As an observation, it's interesting looking at the 'latest'review of Silloth. Assessor feedback says "A truly wonderful course. If it wasn’t for its location (which is part of its charm) it would be much higher up the rankings and receive far more press. A visit to Silloth is life-affirming stuff."

Looks like spending a little extra time in your car for a jolly marks you down......🤣🤣🤣

I find that comment strange because when courses are ranked location is not a factor. I'll highlight it back to the senior panellists.

If anything it should gain us places, keeps the numbers of our American friends down to the odd handful in pre covid days :D

I gauged that. I can't remember quite where it was previously, I thought somewhere in the 80's but to drop out it must have dropped a lot of places. It hasn't been neglected or declined so I'm surprised that has happened.
No it was right down in the low 90's from memory.

I’ve played 38 but quite a few of those would not be in my top 100. Immediately Thorndon Park in Essex and both Enville courses spring to mind.

I think you might be looking at the Golf World Top 100 in England, rather than the Golf Monthly UK and Ireland.

27 for me, and some fabulous memories.

I'm another who thought the Brabazon to be the one I am least likely to visit again.
