They say good things come in small packages and the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club on Grand Cayman is no exception. This Greg Norman-designed course may only be nine holes, but, take it from me, each one is a crafted gem.

The Algonquin Golf Club. New Brunswick

22/11/2018 by .

I’m standing on the 13th tee facing a bit of a dilemma. Practically lapping at my feet, the immense Bay of Fundy awaits like a giant magnet all along the right-hand side of the fairway. To the left, a jungle of gorse and god knows what. Right then, I suppose there’s no other option except straight down the middle.

The Golf Courses of Central Florida. Ezra was an actor of some note I’m told, and he was smiling at me. At least I think he was, it was difficult seeing anything with the sun reflecting off his brilliantly white teeth. Having said that, if his acting is only half as good as his golf was, I was looking at an Oscar winner of the future. Mind you, playing off +3 and teaching golf during his ‘resting’ periods, he might have a problem deciding just what career he should be concentrating on.

It was just past 9 am and it was a little cold to be fair, but they wouldn’t let us on the course. Not even just to hit a few practice balls.  They are so protective of the grass here that even the hint of a little frost is enough to bring the shutters firmly down.
