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 golfing toys, the tournaments, & the players, 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.

The Dutch use their superlative "Gezellig" for describing many of the finer and intimate experiences in life. It doesn't translate that well (cosy?), but nevertheless app...

It was the best of times (playing The Island), it was the worst of times (a 4 club wind), it was the age of wisdom (€80 green fee in March), it was the age of foolishness...

3rd Belgium Ranking 44th Continental Europe Ranking
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...

It was the day after The Open and we'd decided to have a quick round somewhere locally prior to heading back home. We had our preferences but most of them were understand...

Saunton (West) 21/08/2018

3rd Devon - Best in Area 61st England Ranking
Much like with the East course, the first hole on the West is a great getaway. It requires a solid drive left centre fairway, and then a mid or short iron up into a raise...

Royal Fagnes 10/08/2018

8th Belgium Ranking
So we dropped off our friend at the Spa just down the road (when in Rome, he said) and 10 minutes later we were on the first tee. It was an incredibly hot day and we hope...

Only 3 reviews? I’d better write something then. Played here in late July 2014, so not seen the recent bunker renovation mentioned below. Funnily enough some of them were...
