Tim Browne

I love the game of golf as a very challenging sport, a great way to see beautiful places all over the world, to be outdoors in the fresh air and to meet people. Played golf all my life, a member of Belvoir Park, a great parkland course in Belfast over 50 years, and a member of Royal County Down, Portsalon and Rosapenna, all exhilarating links courses. Most of my golf has been played in the British Isles but also extensively in USA, France, Spain and Portugal, about 750 courses played to date. Work in practice as a chartered accountant in Belfast. Category 1 golfer for 40+ years. Always enjoy playing a new course.
