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.

Chisholm Links 28/06/2019

7th South Island - Best in Area 21st New Zealand Ranking
What Chisholm Links manages to achieve as an underfunded council owned piece of land is quite remarkable, mostly due to a coterie of members of the club sited on the link...
