Greg Watson

I'm a keen golfer and enthusiastic about the history of the game and course design. I love the work of Mr James Braid for me his courses have stood the test of time and very rarely disappoint.

Having played the same courses on a repeated basis year after year I set myself the target of trying play 1000 different courses worldwide, and am currently over half way there (576 and counting) I love all types of courses and there's never anything I can describe as a bad game of golf for me.

I appreciate that everyone's views on a course are subjective and personal, I always look for the positives and hope that others do not take offence if I score a course lower than they have. Very similar to a meal in a restaurant everyone's experience is different, including the company.
