“The commentator doesn’t dare to whisper, the engraver remains poised at the trophy, and the eyes of 4 million people are transfixed on just one player, who prepares to take the shot of a lifetime…”
A silly fantasy like this can sometimes echo through our heads before taking a putt; granted our regular shot is never quite as good as Wogan’s 200 footer (check it out if you haven’t seen it), but these moments make golf one of the most rewarding sports out there. Add that to the plethora of beautiful courses across the world, and there’s everything to play for. So who’s the best of the best and where can we practice to beat them?
Do you enjoy nothing more than a relaxing knock about on the golf course, or taking your clubs abroad to experience some refreshingly different challenges? Whatever your thoughts on this fantastic sport, we’d love to hear it all.

The best travel experience I ever had was in Varanasi in India when I took a boat ride up the Ganges to witness the sacred Hindu public cremations that have taken place there constantly for as long as anyone can remember. Hindu’s journey to Varanasi from all over the country to cremate their loved ones and send them off to the next stage of their spiritual life. As I sat on the boat, watching families dip their deceased into the Ganges and then construct a funeral pyre from only 20ft away, I don’t think I have ever been so moved emotionally by anything I have seen on my travels. Their belief that death is not the final stage of a person’s life means the ceremonies are not considered a grievous occasion and I found this both perplexing and beautiful at the same time. Religion is intertwined in the daily routine of everyone who lives in Varanasi and I felt honoured to be allowed to observe from my small boat, such a milestone in all these people’s lives.
Top of my Bucket List, if money was no object, would be to go to Borneo and work in an Orphan Orang-utan Nursery…it would be the ultimate dream to nurse those little ginger fur babies back to health!
