I have played over 800 different golf courses, of which nearly 670 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.

4th Tasmania - Best in Area 18th Australia Ranking 29th Oceania Ranking
I played Ocean Dunes in February, 2019. I fear this gem of a course will close. The conditioning is poor. Already many of the fairways are not watered and several tee...

Jack Nicklaus is often criticized for his golf course designs. Some of it is fair and some of it is not. I have had the privilege of playing several of his better desig...

We had a lot of rain at Kauri Cliffs even after waiting out a three hour rain delay in order to start, which meant I could only play one round on the golf course. Due to...

1st South Island - Best in Area 6th New Zealand Ranking 25th Oceania Ranking
