The Top 100 Tour was launched in 2019 by PGA professional Nathan Cook. The Tour was formed to give golfers the chance to play the highest-ranked courses in our Country, enjoy a great day out, play some courses that you may not otherwise be able to even get the chance to play on, meet new people and tick off course by course.
The Tour is going into its 3rd full season, and the schedule is bigger than ever with 12 courses being ticked off this year and the highest number of golfers signed up per event. Each event is run between April and October to allow us to play these courses in the height of summer and the courses being in there best condition possible.
Since the Tour started in 2019, they’ve played at 11 courses, including three in the top 10 – Sunningdale (Old and New) and St. Enodoc in Cornwall. Events have varied from one-day events to three-day trips. Some of the golf courses played on the tour include:
Membership of the Tour is just £20 for life and the events range from £60-£350 depending on the venue. With the membership you will receive your own Top 100 passport, a list of the courses with information on each and space to put a stamp once played in an event.
The Tour is open to all golfers, a friendly group just looking to have a great experience, some venues may require a handicap limit but most are very relaxed. There are a few prizes up for grabs at each event and we have recently partnered with UP Apparel to supply some prizes on the day.
The plan for the tour is to keep growing, allowing more golfers to enjoy our days. We then would like to move beyond England and look at the UK. Some other ideas are to run trips alongside the England Tour with trips abroad ticking off some top European courses.
So far it’s been a great experience organising each event and playing some unbelievable courses. We recently visited Sunningdale which is number 1 in England and it was just an amazing bucket list day for everyone that attended and the best course I have personally ever played!
