Alex Sherratt

I have been playing golf for 35+ years; I am member at Church Stretton Golf Club in Shropshire. Lowest handicap I have achieved is 3; lowest gross round in a comp is a -6. Anyway forget the figures I just enjoy playing golf on different layouts. I am close to playing over 150 differing courses and out of the current Top 100 I have played just over 20. My thoughts are that the Top 100 courses are getting too expensive and are thus becoming out of reach for many people. My top 3 courses are Hillside, Royal Liverpool (Hoylake) and Moray (Old).

What I would call a pleasant course, not long or hard making it ideal for the 1st leg of our trip whilst on the way to Cardiff. The course seems to circle around the club...

Played last week between Xmas and New Year, the weather was not good (it got very wet) so the greens flooded towards the end of the round. The course is an old fashioned...

Day 1 of our trip, the jury was out over the first 6 or 7 holes as it all seems a little bit crammed in and almost dangerous! However once you reach the bottom corner and...
