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.

Good balance to the course with holes of a consistently decent quality. Didn't like the Par 3 9th with a great big tree in front of the green, but liked many others. Ho...

14th Netherlands Ranking
It's difficult to be completely objective with De Goyer as it's my home course in The Netherlands. I tend to look forward to playing other courses. There's a marriage ana...

Domburgsche 11/10/2016

29th Netherlands Ranking
Said to be the the only links course in Holland, presumably because you can see, hear, and feel the sea from a few of the tees. Domburg starts promising with a run of lin...

Lauswolt 11/10/2016

27th Netherlands Ranking
Lauswolt is a decent enough course and has some lovely holes. What lets it down is the quality contrast between the older Pennink nine and the newer nine. Some of the hol...
