Golf World - Scotland.

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

Please note that we have stopped the list at 50 for Scotland as we believe the quality at 50th place is roughly the equivalent to 100th place in the English 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 all the courses on the list (except Scotscraig & Grantown on Spey) and below you can find links to his golf course reviews.
