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 7. 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.

Western Gailes 10/01/2021

4th Ayrshire & Arran - Best in Area 18th Scotland Ranking 41st Britain & Ireland Ranking
