Great Britain & Ireland 2020

Golf World Top-100 Courses in Great Britain & Ireland was first launched in the late 1980s. With literally hundreds of fine golf courses across the breadth of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, it is arguably our most competitive ranking. And with many of the best golf courses in the list boasting incredible history, heritage, and prestige, it is also the one that is most difficult to judge. In this ranking, you’ll find courses worthy of hosting major championships and internationally-acclaimed tournaments, those that actually do just that, and a selection of unsung heroes that you may not even have heard of before. www.golfworldtop100.com
