Dan Hare

I am an 10-handicap member of Les Mielles in Jersey, where I am lucky enough to be able to regularly play some great golf both on the island and in France. I'm a traditional links golf addict and have an unofficial challenge with a good friend to play all classic links courses in Britain in a few weeks per year, of course using the Top 100 Golf Courses and its informed users as our Bible!

If I could only play at one golf course for the rest of my life it would have to be Royal Dornoch (gorse controversy not withstanding) – maybe one day I would birdie Foxy?

We finally had the chance to "complete the set" at Gullane, as always an enjoyable place to visit and play golf. It was probably more than a five club wind, drivers out o...

Fun experience to tread in the footsteps, see Mrs. Formans, and play on springy turf. That said, the golf itself is fun and great value but with only a few quality holes...
