I am a 12-handicap member of Les Mielles in Jersey and am on the waiting list to join La Moye Golf Club which I’m hoping to get into within the next few years. I am on the border of being a golf fanatic and play as many qualifying competitions as I can. As others from Jersey have alluded to, it is quite difficult for us to travel to play other courses as we have to get across the water first!
I don’t really have a favourite type of course and like to take each course on its own merits, however I do tend to prefer courses which have some elevation changes or are a little bit quirky. For example, I found Royal Liverpool, whilst absolutely pristine, a little bit flat and bland for my liking whereas others would enjoy and appreciate the technical and strategic aspects of the course. I think that you can also rely on me to give an impartial review, even if I’ve played terribly at the course (which is most of the time)!If I won the lottery, I would try and play as many new courses as I possibly could whilst having a happy family at home. At the moment, my two favourite courses so far have been Wolf Creek in Mesquite and St George’s Hill.
