Tim Elliott

I like playing different golf courses and holidaying in fabulous locations around the world playing the game. I also enjoy reviewing golf courses that I have played and comparing my reflections with others. My life target is to play 1000 separate golf courses, and I hope to reach 750 in 2022. I use the ‘Top 100 Golf Courses’ website as my guide so that I only play at good quality locations.

My handicap is 14 at Hankley Common, Surrey, UK and I also have membership rights at Gleneagles in Scotland and Simola in South Africa.
