Scarlett

I'm an Australian who has been fortunate enough to live in a few different countries and 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 68 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.

2nd Cyprus Ranking

I've played this course on and off for the past 15 years and it's looking as good as it ever has circa late 2021. The relatively standard suburban parkland course has und...

Palmer Coolum 13/03/2022

13th Queensland - Best in Area 95th Australia Ranking
A championship resort course on the Sunshine Coast that makes heavy use of water hazards and bunkering. The hazards are almost always in play making any poor shots costly...

It's hard to know what to expect when travelling to a par 3 course: will it be a bit 'mickey mouse' or will it be a decent golf course, just shorter? Does it cater to onl...

Right from the start I need to correct some of the marketing waffle related to this course: it is not a links course, nor a links-style course. Unless of course you're ar...

I'm going to call this a 9-ish hole links course set along the coast at the edge of Currie township. 9-ish, due to the different tees, fairways and greens employed to pro...

Well it says 'waters' in the name so I guess it 'does what is says on the tin': the course is built on native swamp land so there certainly are red stakes everywhere. Ins...
