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.

Muscat Hills 16/03/2020

2nd Oman Ranking 19th Middle East Ranking
Initially I found this course a little hard to fit into a neat box: was it a desert course, a members course trying to be parkland, or was it a resort course catering to...

6th South Australia - Best in Area 70th Australia Ranking 97th Oceania Ranking
I can see why they use the word Links in the name, with the sandy base and the style of bunkering throughout, but in the true sense this is not a links course: more a lin...

Black Bull 03/12/2019

34th Victoria - Best in Area 83rd Australia Ranking
I just don't get the hype about this course. Maybe in 20 years I'll come back to see how it's grown in, but for now it still resembles the flat cow paddock it was 10 year...
