Golf World Magazine

Golf World - Ireland.

Golf World Magazine produced a Top 100 Ireland in 2019 and the results can be seen below.

Please note that we have stopped the list at 30 for Ireland as we believe the quality at 20th place is roughly the equivalent to 100th place in the English list, 50th place in the Scottish list and 20th place in the Welsh list.

As usual the list is a good one and highlights the best Scottish golf courses.

Comparing it to the equivalent lists from National Club Golfer and the Top 100 website you will spot the following courses towards the bottom of the list which do not feature in the other two; Scotscraig, Grantown on Spey, Peterhead (Old), Blairgowrie (Lansdowne), Lanark and Fortrose & Rosemarkie.

Contrastingly, Montrose (Medal), Spey Valley and St. Andrews (Jubilee) cannot be found here but are in the other two lists.

Golf Empire founder, Ed Battye, has played some of courses on the list and below you can find links to his golf course reviews.
