A total of sixteen IMG Prestige courses were included in the respected list published every two years by Golf World Magazine. Golf World’s Top 100 Golf Courses is an established and comprehensive ranking of the Best Golf Courses in Continental Europe. The latest ranking of the Top 100 Courses in Continental Europe reflects the changing landscape in golf development.

No fewer than 20 countries are represented in the most comprehensively researched listing ever.

Russell Hannah, Senior Director at IMG Golf commented: “It is always a great pleasure to see IMG Prestige clubs receive the recognition they deserve, and these rankings are testament to both great course design and all of the hard work carried out behind the scenes at each club. The IMG Prestige network has long been associated with quality, and with now over 200 leading courses across the globe, it is no surprise that our clubs continue to dominate prestigious rankings such as these”.

With golf continuing to flourish as a sport in Europe, this ranking will become increasingly difficult to judge in the future. Golf World is already looking to expand the list to include 200 courses, since the level of quality is so high that the margins between being ranked in the 90s or just outside the Top-100 are very fine indeed.

An extensive course review panel and a time-proven judging methodology enable Golf World’s Top 100 rankings to identify the best-in-class golf experiences.

  • Monte Rei, Portugal
  • Bro Hof Slott (Stadium Course), Sweden
