Favourite Holes – 3rd at Hinksey Heights

Probably the most difficult hole at Hinksey Heights, the sloping fairway helps feed your ball in the right direction so be confident to aim down the right but it is still a very tough hole.

Open Qualifying at The Buckinghamshire Golf Club

The grass runway at Hedsor Golf Club, used to land light aircraft that were authorized by Heathrow, can still be seen on the course but no planes obstructed my quick 9 holes today.

Perthshire Hidden Treasure – St Fillan’s Golf Club

An Amateur Golfer’s view on St Fillan’s Golf Club

St Fillan’s golf course is a real gem and only 11 miles from Crieff, set quietly on a flat piece of parkland, the course is surrounded by mountains and forest. It is not unusual to see Sandy Lyle, The Open and The Masters champion, play at this very challenging course as he lives not too far away!
