Mark White

I have played over 900 different golf courses, of which over 700 of them are on this website. 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. My golf bucket list is to play in every state in the USA (47 so far) and at least 20 countries. 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. There are about 400 more golf courses I would love to play. So much golf.....so little time.

11th Lothians - Best in Area 67th Scotland Ranking
Longniddry is a pleasant course to play particularly if one is adding a second round on the same day. While the yardage seems short at 6271 yards, the course has no par...

Little Aston 22/07/2022

3rd Staffordshire - Best in Area 54th England Ranking

Metropolis 16/07/2022

50th New York - Best in Area
Metropolis is a course of inconsistency. In the golf rich state of New York, if a course is recognized as being in the top 40, it is a course very much worth playing. M...
