They’re questions we hear often at GOLF.com:

How do you compile your Top 100 course rankings? Why does one course land at, say, 7th and another at, say, 83rd? What qualities do all truly great courses share? Which courses are on the rise, and why? Which courses are sliding, and why? Which newcomers are destined for greatness?

Good questions all, and now, we’re giving InsideGOLF members an opportunity to pose those very queries, and more, to a small group of our course-rating panelists — in a live setting!

On Thursday, July 7, at 1 p.m. EST, InsideGOLF members will have exclusive access to a live interactive Zoom roundtable, featuring GOLF’s architecture editor Ran Morrissett; veteran GOLF course rater Gordon Dalgleish; and Josh Sens, a GOLF senior writer who sits on GOLF’s course-rating panel. (Not yet an InsideGOLF member? Join here.)

It’s a timely opportunity.

Top 100 Courses in the U.K. and Ireland: Our raters’ first-ever ranking of the golf mecca
By: GOLF’s Raters & Ran Morrissett

Earlier this week, we rolled out our latest list — our first-ever ranking of the Top 100 Courses in the U.K. and Ireland — which is loaded with wild and wonderful designs from one of the world’s most golf-rich regions. With new lists come new questions and new debates, so we’re hopeful this live roundtable setting will give our InsideGOLF members a chance to not only pick the brains of our expert raters about our latest ranking but also share their own opinions about golf in Ireland, Scotland, England and the rest of the British Isles.

Need help planning a trip to Ireland or Scotland? Curious about what makes the Old Course at St. Andrews such a pillar of architectural greatness? Have questions about the hidden gems of the linksland? Our experts are here to help. All you need to do is join InsideGOLF.

Not yet a member? Join here for only $20 and you’ll enjoy a host of incredible benefits, including members-only content on GOLF.com; a $20 credit to the GOLF Pro Shop; a subscription to GOLF Magazine; and, yes, exclusive access to our deep bench of experts.

Our interactive course-rater roundtable will begin Thursday at 1 p.m. EST. InsideGOLF members will receive a notification and Zoom link via email shortly before the discussion commences.
