Mark White

I have played 706 different golf courses, of which I consider 450 of them worth playing if in the area. I don't chase "lists" but I look at them to see whether a course worth playing is nearby on my travels. I have my own rating system and have ranked every course I have played and recorded every score since 1993. My golf bucket list is to play in every state in the USA (43 so far). I lived in England from 1993-1998 and am a member of a club in Scotland so I continue to go every year to the U.K or Ireland. I have played in Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, Singapore, Tunisia, UK and the USA but have yet to play in Japan or the Caribbean.
