I’ve been an avid golfer since I was about 15 years old, living in Edinburgh. I am a member at Archerfield, North Berwick and Royal Dornoch and play off 9. I love playing new courses and have set myself a challenge of playing the top 100 courses in GB&I and as many of the top 100 courses in the world as possible.

3rd Lothians - Best in Area 20th Scotland Ranking 60th Britain & Ireland Ranking

The Addington 10/01/2021

16th Surrey - Best in Area 58th England Ranking
The Addington is a decent course that is in need of some TLC. The greens are good, and were the fastest I played all year, but elsewhere the conditioning is poor. The goo...

Hankley Common 10/01/2021

8th Surrey - Best in Area 29th England Ranking 70th Britain & Ireland Ranking
The striking thing about Hankley is the expanse of land that the course covers. The first 4 holes are played in a loop back to the clubhouse but then the course opens up...
