That has to be the 18 holes we played at The Links Valley (header photo) during the Leading Courses Series. It was memorable not just because we played the same course in two directions but also because it was the first time I broke 100! All in all a fantastic experience and I can highly recommend everyone to join our next Series event.
Looking at my reviews on Leading Courses, the highest rating I gave was a 9.1 for the “Koninklijke Haagsche G&CC” and I think in retrospect it’s fair to say that indeed I was most impressed with that course in 2022. It was very challenging, especially for a rookie like myself, but the whole atmosphere, condition of the course and surroundings were truly next level.
As golf is a way to relax for me, surroundings are always something that I factor into my decision on which course to play. I love forest courses as well as any course that overlooks the ocean!
I would have probably given the same answer for the last three years; Rory McIlroy is one of the reasons why I love watching golf so much. It’s not just his textbook swings but his entire demeanour and attitude both on- and off the course that are a true poster for the game of golf.
It’s been said by many others before me, but seeing Tiger walk St. Andrew’s bridge the way he did almost brought tears to my eyes. He will probably forever be one of the most iconic golfers in history and seeing him struggle at The Open felt like the end of an era. You never know with Tiger though, he might make another comeback in 2023!
Most definitely! I’ve created a bucket list with courses I really want to play, but I don’t have the illusion that I’ll play all of them in 2023. One that’s on the list and that I will be playing however, is Monte Rei. I’m very much looking forward to playing Portugal’s highest rated course!
According to my pro I should be able to get my HCP down to 18 in the coming year, so that’s what I’ll be training for!
