Mark White

I have played over 800 different golf courses, of which over 620 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 (44 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 600 more golf courses I would love to play. So much golf.....so little time.
