I was a late starter to the game and am yet to reach the single figure handicap target I’d initially set myself. The Seniors Tour debut will have to wait a little bit longer.

During several years working for a Golf equipment manufacturer, my interest progressed from the tournaments, players, and golfing toys, on to the courses themselves.

I wouldn’t describe myself as a “list chaser”, but I do love experiencing interesting new courses. Top 100 is the perfect facilitator for this.

Amongst my favourite places visited so far are Brora, De Pan, and Bandon Dunes - and I always enjoy stepping in sheep poo at my home club Royal North Devon.

In need of a great value Billy-Goat climb (I’m not kidding), enjoying great views, lost balls, & fun shot demands - within a thinned flop shot of one of the world’s great...

Links Valley 28/03/2020

26th Netherlands Ranking
The reversible Links Valley is a thoughtful effort, with the variety of green sites being the course’s (courses’) best feature. It’s a shame this thoughtfulness didn’t ex...

Elie 09/03/2020

7th Fife - Best in Area 35th Scotland Ranking
Despite playing Elie around 10 years ago, I can still picture the periscope on #1 - which helps determine if the blind fairway up ahead is clear. I’m sure when I looked...

Royal Ostend 26/02/2020

5th Belgium Ranking 82nd Continental Europe Ranking
Royal Ostend could more accurately be called Royal Odds & Ends. It’s a fragmented series of holes patched together to create an 18 hole layout. A routing that crosses mor...

Eaton 25/02/2020

9th Norfolk - Best in Area
Eaton golf course is quite the oasis within suburban Norwich. It’s not a massive parcel of land - so can feel hemmed in at times - but is nevertheless a pleasant routing...

International - Amsterdam 20/02/2020

15th Netherlands Ranking
This golf club is like a golfing version of Red Bull Leipzig. On one hand you have to admire what has been achieved in a short space of time, but on the other hand I feel...

Corballis Links 18/12/2019

12th Dublin - Best in Area 97th Ireland Ranking
If truth be told I only played Corballis because a good mate was a member there and he bullied me into it. I was on a rare weekend escape and my preference was to fritter...

1st Meath - Best in Area 29th Ireland Ranking
An incredible historic idiot wind caught my tee shot at the first and dumped it into the large bunker on the left hand side of the fairway. I have to say “incredible hist...

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single golfer in possession of good sense for history, must be in want of a trip to The Netherlands. After all, it was in th...

Bernardus 29/09/2019

Bernardus goes straight to the very top of modern Dutch golf courses in my conceited opinion. I prefer it to The International, Lage Vuursche, Swinkelsche, and Stippelber...

Shiver Me Timbers, this place is excellent! The first hole might be a gentle downhill drive and mid iron to an infinity green site introducing a lovely view, but from...

When tracing my roots I discovered that many years ago a Branch from my family tree had once excelled at The Belgian Open. He was possibly the only relative ever to hit 2...

Taking an Uber to RMS directly from Heathrow ironically meant I was indirectly contributing to one of the criticisms thrown at this course. We didn’t get bothered by plan...
