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.

1st Cyprus Ranking
A few holes in - it was the 4th or 5th - and I thought I was still at the beach. Perhaps after picking me up at the coast the taxi driver just drove around in circles for...

Sheringham 03/09/2018

3rd Norfolk - Best in Area 79th England Ranking
Not sure how you’d categorize Sheringham. It’s not a links but plays a bit like one - much like a firm heathland that’s been transposed to a pretty attractive clifftop se...

If you ask any democrat politician to describe Donald Trump, you’re unlikely to get a positive assessment. I’m a bit like that with courses like this. And in Holland wher...

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...

Bude & North Cornwall 15/08/2018

6th Cornwall - Best in Area
Enjoyed my round here. Not the best course you’ll ever play but it’s “different”, good value, and at the midpoint between Royal North Devon and St Enodoc. Many holes h...

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...

6th Oregon - Best in Area
Making my way over to Waverley Country Club directly after an 11 hour flight from Europe was not ideal preparation. Although I did manage to watch Caddyshack in the plane...

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...

As a William coming over from Holland to play Golf on the banks of the River Boyne, I was a little curious as to the welcome I would receive at County Louth. This is a q...

When you stand on the first tee at Royal North Devon overlooking the flat expanse of the Northam Burrows, you could be forgiven for wondering where the golf course is. It...

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...
