Neil White

I am a listaoholic and keen golfer so, in June 2020, I set about the challenge of taking on England's top 100 courses with a notion to be followed by the British Isles, Europe and even The World. The collected warblings about my travels can be found at www.thegolfpilgrim.com and I can be followed on Instagram under The Golf Pilgrim tag.
