South Africa 2022

Former Golf Digest editor Stuart McLean, based in Cape Town, launched a digital platform for South Africa’s Top 100 Course Rankings in 2020. McLean first introduced the rankings in Golf Digest SA in 1998 and has now announced his first rankings since that publication closed. The extensive website offers a page of content and information on each of 125 South African courses – there is both a national ranking and regional rankings. The website has a facility for the golfing public to review and rate the Conditioning of courses they play, plus club facilities. There is a News section with regular articles and blogs, and golfers can sign up to receive a monthly newsletter. www.satop100courses.com
