James

I’m a keen golfer with over 35 years of golfing experience in both amateur and professional ranks. I like scenic courses that are harmonious with their environment, strategic courses that take you on a journey with their routing and are an honest but fair technical test that inspire to take on heroic and thrilling shots. Risk and reward. Currently playing off a 3 handicap at Blackmoor, England, I’m a keen a skier, golfer and traveller. I’m the consulting Director of Acceler-it, bringing IT Personnel to fast growth young tech companies. I’ve played in over twenty countries and am still keen to travel to the ends of the earth to play a new course; my bucket list locations are Argentina (Done), Vietnam and Mauritius. I’m a member of several societies and also play competitively in teams and individually.

Llao Llao 12/12/2018

33rd Argentina Ranking
The whistling wind is whipping over the vast glacial lake, sending sea like waves shh-ing onto the stoney shore below. The busy trees whinny and sway as I send my ball in...

Climbing out of the city to the North you will find the rolling landscape, tangled shrub and wild flora of the low sierra for as far as the eye can see. Nestled in amongs...

Well, when you go and see a comedian live, you want to hear new jokes, not the ones you have heard already right? But when you go and see the rolling Stones the last thin...

Córdoba 07/12/2018

12th Argentina Ranking
This is no course for flip flops folks. The closest course to downtown Cordoba is probably the greatest overall test of the big four you will play in Cordoba. You will n...

I think this is my first true Mackenzie Course. Now, I think if you dropped me onto any of his courses blindfolded, I think I would be able to tell you he designed it. I...

The pancake flat land around Buenos Aires means that if you want to build a course here you need to shape everything and move earth. When they laid down this course they...

Now I like a walk but there is a little too much perambulation about The Remedy Oak Course. Between tees and Greens you will have plenty of time to talk. Perhaps complain...
