James

I’m a keen golfer with over 30 years of golfing experience in both amateur and professional ranks. I like scenic courses that are harmonious with their environment, courses that take you on a journey with their routing and are an honest but fair technical test. Currently playing off a 1 handicap in Surrey, England, I’m a keen a skier, golf writer and traveller. I’m the consulting Director of Acceler-it, bringing Personnel and Capital investment through private equity 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, Vietnam and Mauritius. I’m a member of several societies and also play competitively in teams and individually.
