Marty Brown

I started my PGA golf career back in 1986. In that time my career path has taken me from Cheshire to Royal Jersey, Fulford in York and back to Cheshire where since 2007 I have been Head Professional at Delamere Forest Golf Club. Favourite Top 100 courses include Royal Birkdale, Royal Dornoch, Waterville & Prestwick for its old fashioned style on & off course. I simply enjoy the beauty of the land whether I shoot 70 or 80 (or more!)

Played middle of March and thankfully caught it on a calm day. Having played the course with the wind blowing I know how tough the course can be. Not that playing without...

Played early March having not played for nearly 9 years. I took a friend who I had bored for that time telling him how good Ganton is. The 133-mile journey to get there w...

Dunaverty 29/07/2015

5th Argyll & Bute - Best in Area
Quite simply fun holiday golf at its best. Playing Dunaverty was a great way to gently break us in before challenging the big courses at Machrihanish. I agree with Mr McC...

Portsalon 16/08/2014

5th Donegal - Best in Area 21st Ireland Ranking
Portsalon was viewed by our party as the travelling day course, something to break us in having flown to Belfast followed by a 2 ½ hour drive North West. It turned o...

1st Worcestershire - Best in Area 88th England Ranking

5th Yorkshire - Best in Area
Having played Fulford regularly over the last 10 years it was once again enjoyable to make the journey over the Pennines in early September. The course was in decent cond...

Prestwick 15/08/2012

4th Ayrshire & Arran - Best in Area 16th Scotland Ranking 38th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Anyone serious about golf and its heritage must make a pilgrimage to Prestwick. I had been warned about the 1st tee shot but nothing quite prepares you. The more you look...

Royal Guernsey 02/02/2011

1st Guernsey Ranking
Played many times in the 1990’s while living in Jersey. L’Ancresse is a real rustic links style of course. With it being on Common Land grazing rights were still in place...

Murcar Links 02/09/2010

4th North East Scotland - Best in Area 34th Scotland Ranking
Good test of golf by anyone’s standard. Doesn’t not have the polished feel like Royal Aberdeen next door but I don’t think they go after that either. Th...

2nd Cheshire - Best in Area 40th England Ranking 93rd Britain & Ireland Ranking
Delamere is such a delight to play. From the moment you turn into the drive you lose yourself in the tranquillity of the place, that is if you find the place to start wit...

Carne (Hackett) 14/06/2009

1st Mayo - Best in Area 12th Ireland Ranking 59th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Well worth the trip out West. Pure rustic links at its best. Can’t believe the course is less than 20 years old, feels like it as been their forever. Like Enniscrone, Car...
