David Oliver

Single figure golfer, home club the Royal Jersey Golf Club. Played 95 of the GB&I Top 100. The only type of course I am not overly fond of are parkland / tree lined courses. Fan of Coore & Crenshaw, McLay Kidd, Doak and Harry Colt. Favourite resorts are Bandon and Streamsong. Favourite courses in no particular order are Chambers Bay, Royal County Down, Doonbeg, Les Bordes, Oitavos, West Cliffs, Pebble Beach, Streamsong Blue, Old Head, Birkdale, Carne, TPC Sawgrass, Pacific Dunes, Skibo Castle and Tobacco Road. Passionate about rankings but I find reviews of private courses frustrating as I, most avid golfers, want to the opportunity to play all courses especially if they are considered great.

I just did not "get" this course, sorry. I have played over 100 couses in the GB&I including 40+ in Ireland and this is disappointing. I do love quirky courses but this d...
