David Richards

Dave’s love affair with golf began in his early teens. This hobby soon took hold and he spent the next few years working in pro shops, before going on to work with Keith in the very, very early days of Top 100 and finally working for the Acushnet company looking after European marketing for FootJoy. He has a preference for links style golf with his personal favourites being Kiawah Island, Royal Liverpool and his old home club of Royal St David’s. Nowadays he can be found on a bike more often than on a golf course, but his passion and knowledge of golf remains undimmed and we are sure we’ll see Dave hacking about in the undergrowth again in the not too distant future.

Kilspindie 25/08/2020

10th Lothians - Best in Area 59th Scotland Ranking
What a pleasure - Kilspindie as I'm sure you are now aware, is not a long course. At around 5500 yards it may seem lacking, but don't let the distance worry you, this is...

The first thing that strikes you about Moor Park is the amazing clubhouse. A mammoth building that smacks of history and elegance. The course itself opens up with a wel...

What an enjoyable course. After a very weak start, this course just gets better and better. The Par 5's are good testing risk reward holes and the par 3's make you thin...

The Gogs. I have now played this on 4 occasions. Placing it as the number one course in Cambridgeshire in all honesty isn't saying much (it has little competition). Ho...

2nd Essex - Best in Area
You get the feeling of links golf here, the ground is tight and springy, and when the wind blows it can really impact on your club selection. 11 and 12 are probably the...

Frankly I wish they had decided on either a parkland or a links course. This doesn't feel right. 9 Parkland holes and 9 Links holes. The links holes are a good selecti...

Set in the heart of affluent Cheshire this course has the feeling of being a little too rich for its own good. The course is OK, the clubhouse is beautiful. One can't h...
