    How far do you travel? And how far would you travel?

    I had a tough decision to make a few years ago. Loved the club I was at ( Lymm ), lots of friends there who I grew up with. Thing is, I was only managing to play once a week ( maybe 1 and then 9 in the summer). Travel was the main issue during the week, getting across Warrington in the week (up...

    Southport accommodation advice

    Vincent is the best hotel in Southport by a country mile... bumped into Freddie Couples in there when he played the senior open at Birkdale a few years ago. Not cheap though. Bliss Hotel or Hotel 21 are probably the next best. Avoid the Scarasbrick like the plague.... Or go for a small family...

    Championship course is OK, stay away from the other course (Premier) as its gone really down hill, shame as its a good layout! Carden Park in Chester is a better set up now...

    Hardest course you’ve played, and why?

    Southernerss as already mentioned was a brute that day. I nutted driver on that par 3, and came up well short! Didn't somebody score 36 pts with the next closest being 24 or something 🤣🤣 On another note, I played St Annes Old Links and struggled to crack a 100 (off 14 at the time) as did many...

    Scottsdale golf Custom fitting

    The new scotsdale place looks great, with the added bonus of them building the clubs there while you wait. Personally though, the fitting experience you get with tour x is second to none! You may have to wait a little while for your bats, but Nick literally builds them himself!

    Stand bag or pencil bag?

    Meet in the middle - callaway hyperlite 2. Fits a full set in (but tight, but doable) and has the full stands on so it doesn't get too muddy
