T P Dean

I'm a member of Hindhead Golf Club and a Top 100 GB&I panellist. Playing to a single figure handicap, I've played over 70 of the top 100 GB&I courses and more than 80 of England’s top 100. My bias is strongly towards links golf, although I have a passion for heathland golf too. And if the course is quirky, undulating and has some great views, then you're starting to mix some of my favourite ingredients.
