Scarlett

I'm an Australian who has been fortunate enough to live in a few different countries and even more fortunate to have been able to travel widely throughout the world with my job and on holidays. My golf sticks pretty much always go with me and at last count I've been able to experience life and golf in 56 different countries and played about 600 different courses (315 of those in Australia, including all of the top 100 public access courses).

Even though I know it's highly unlikely, I love the thought of trying to play golf in every country in the world with a golf course - it's a long, long term goal.

My excuse for my 13 handicap is that I'm still working full time. My favourite golf courses include the rather diverse: Prestwick, Barnbougle Dunes, Paa-Ko Ridge, all the courses at St Andrews, and NSW Golf Club.

Cranbourne 05/12/2018

37th Victoria - Best in Area 92nd Australia Ranking
Just a really pleasant parkland course that was challenging but if played well, very fair. The bunkering and sandy base were standouts, with fairway and greenside bunker...

Federal 05/12/2018

2nd ACT - Best in Area 94th Australia Ranking
I'm fortunate to have played Federal many times and it really is one of those courses where I just don't tire of it, probably because to play Federal well, you have to be...

Tasmania 05/12/2018

5th Tasmania - Best in Area 95th Australia Ranking
To declare my intentions early: I love this golf course. I love the smell of the mature eucalypts lining many of the holes; I love the unpretentiousness of the club; I lo...

Secret Harbour 05/12/2018

12th Western Australia - Best in Area 96th Australia Ranking
"Secrets" (I hope the club didn't waste too much money on that marketing gumph) is not a seaside links as the former name, Secret Harbour Golf Links suggests, but is set...

This is a country town golf course of high quality that has part parkland feel but also some elements of linksland being quite close to the ocean and on old dunes. I play...

Heritage (St John) 01/12/2018

40th Victoria - Best in Area 100th Australia Ranking
The St. John course occupies the better parcel of land at this 36-hole club and is the superior of the two courses. It is for the most part quite open and flows like a li...

I liked Scotscraig, I really did, but just didn't have the time to do it justice. This course was the venue for the second of four games played on the summer solstice a f...

Considering the golfing pedigree on offer both in Scotland and closer to Drumoig in the Fife region, this course can only really be considered average. It's a fine course...
