Thomas Dean

I'm a member of Hindhead Golf Club based down in the Heathland belt of Surrey, England. Playing to a handicap of 7, most of my golf experience has been limited to the UK and Ireland, of which, I've played around a third of the top 100 courses.

Favourite courses played to date include Cruden Bay, Royal St George's, Royal Birkdale, Ganton, Royal Dornoch and St Enodoc.
