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.

6th Lothians - Best in Area 39th Scotland Ranking
I first played Dunbar in September, 1995 and thought it was just okay. A summary of my notes at that time follows:"Goes way out and back. Closest you will play to the w...

Misquamicut 02/10/2019

6th Rhode Island - Best in Area
Joy is the word that springs to mind when playing The Misquamicut Club. The first ten holes are a rolling adventure and you play three of the best par 3's you will ever...

Luffness New 01/10/2019

8th Lothians - Best in Area 46th Scotland Ranking
One plays Luffness New for the fun of the game as well as a relatively quick round of golf. It is not a golf course that provides a real challenge unless the wind is rea...

Brora 29/09/2019

6th North Scotland - Best in Area 29th Scotland Ranking 89th Britain & Ireland Ranking
I would go a bit stronger on my recommendation for Brora. If one is in the area to play Castle Stuart and Royal Dornoch, then one should always add Brora to the schedule...

14th Surrey - Best in Area 54th England Ranking
New Zealand is a very enjoyable and attractive golf course once the fog lifts. I played the first six holes early in the morning when a fog made it difficult to see the...
