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?

18th Hampshire - Best in Area
Having played Old Thorns, it is a classic case of two sets of holes - some beauties in the mature hilly wooded part, but then some rather plain flat holes out amongst som...

St Andrews (Jubilee) 19/03/2010

8th Fife - Best in Area 47th Scotland Ranking
