Magical MoroccoMy golf travel takes me to Magical Morocco. Playing golf in Marrakech, Rabat, Meknes and Ifrane means you can join me on my quick tour around Morocco for the sights and sounds of North Africa as seen through the eyes of the Travelling Lady Golfer. Play Robert Trent Jones, RTJ, courses to Jack Nicklaus signature course at Michlifen in the Atlas Mountains. Enjoy sculptures on the course and of course traditional tagine to tantalise your tastebuds.
But would I go back?
Take a look and then you decide if Morocco is the place for you

Zipping up ZanzibarPre Corona I was invited to visit Zanzibar, not usually associated as a dedicated golf destination, and with only 9 holes, you could argue it isn't, but what it does offer is an amazing experience to explore this wonderful tropical island and play a decent Peter Matkovich designed golf course at Sea Cliff Golf Resort and Spa. Mix it up with excursions to Stone Town and other exciting locations leads me to think, is this a location that really does have it all for golfers and non golfers; for the whole family?
Think tropical retreat, think about white sand, blue sky, blue sea and your have this rolled up in the beaches of Zanzibar. A haven that epitomises rest and relaxation.

Ever had that Friday feeling every day?
I did last week, starting with a walk in the field with the 6 month black lab puppy, tripping over my
own shoe laces and falling flat on my face, much to the dogs delighted as he bounced on me wanting more play time whilst I was on his level. Fun to start with, and very funny when he tried to flatten himself to the ground and sneak up on me on his toes, a bit like an oil slick. Continue reading
CLUB GLIDER MERIDIAN GOLF TRAVEL BAG
DIMENSIONS 52 X 14 X 12 INCHES
THE MERIDIAN GOLF TRAVEL BAG, PART OF THE CLUB GLIDER RANGE, HAS ALWAYS RAISED EYEBROWS WHEN WHEELING WITH EASE THROUGH AIRPOTS AND AT HOTELS, IT DOES BAFFLE THE ODD PORTER WHO SIMPLY CAN’T UNDERSTAND THAT THE SECOND SET OF WHEELS MAKE IT EASIER TO NAVIGATE AND INSISTS ON DRAGGING IT ALONG AS IF IT WERE A REGULAR GOLF TRAVEL BAG – TO MY CONCERN THAT IT MIGHT DAMAGE THE GOLF CLUBS OR BAG ITSELF AS IT ISN’T BEING USED AS DESIGNED, WHEN BEING DRAGGED ALONG ON THE TWO STATIC WHEELS BUT IT HASN’T DAMAGED TO DATE EITHER, SO I CAN ONLY ASSUME THAT THE REINFORCED STRAPS AND PADDING MAKE IT A MORE DURABLE TO ‘MIS-USE’
A SECTION OF COLOURS HELPS WITH THE DECISION MAKING – IT ISN’T A ONE SIZE FITS ALL WHEN IT COME TO COLOUR CHOICES.
BUT WHEN A PRODUCT IS SO GOOD, FIT FOR PURPOSE, EASY TO USE AND IS A HELP NOT A HINDRANCE THERE SEEMS LITTLE ELSE TO SAY ABOUT IT, EXCEPT KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK, AND I WILL KEEP PROMOTING THROUGH BRAND FUSION, HERE IN THE UK.
PERFECT FOR ALL GOLF TRAVELLERS WORLDWIDE.

ABSOLUTELY, AND PROMOTED AS WELL!
It is true, Scotland does not have the best reputation for lady golfers, whether that is to welcome them or whether that is looking after their own. Big name clubs not making female golfers welcome have not helped this reputation for women in this must play golfing mecca. But Angus’ open doors approach is a sure winner for both sexes. This last trip to Angus, aka Carnoustie Country has certainly opened my eyes, it is an area one can go golfing but it is also an area to visit for holidays too.

SUN MOUNTAIN GOLF BAGS JUST GET BETTER AND BETTER.
I FIRST REVIEWED A SUN MOUNTAIN BAG IN 2013, NOW 5 YEARS LATER I’M BACK FOR MORE. (2013 BELOW FOR INTEREST)
WITH SUBTLE YET FUNCTIONAL CHANGES THE GOLF BAG IS NOT ONLY AVAILABLE IN TRENDY COLOURS BUT HAS FUNCTIONALITY WHICH MAKE IT A GOOD ALL YEAR ROUND GOLF BAG TO OWN. I USE MY LITE WEIGHT CARY BAG MAINLY FOR TRAVELLING, BUT IT WOULD WORK EQUALLY WELL IF IT WAS THE ONLY GOLF BAG YOU OWNED. IT HAS BEEN USED IN BLISTERING SUNSHINE, IN COLD DAMP WEATHER AND IN FULL BLOWN RAIN STORMS WHERE THE 19TH HOLE JUST BECKONS! DURING THIS PAST YEAR, THE NEW BAG HAS BEEN BASHED AROUND THE LUGGAGE BELT, BEEN THROWN IN AND OUT OF COACHES, TAXI’S AND CARS, AND DROPPED MORE TIMES BY CARELESS BAGGAGE HANDLERS THAN I CARE TO MENTION, NATURALLY I USE A TRAVEL BAG, BUT THE CONTENTS DO GET SHAKEN UP AT TIMES!
MY FIRST MISTAKE WITH MY ORIGINAL BAG WHICH I USED FOR TRAVELING WAS TO GET A WHITE ONE – BIG MISTAKE, IT GOT FILTHY GOING ABOUT ITS EVERY DAY LIFE, MY NEW SENSIBLE HEAD HAS GONE FOR A COLOUR THIS TIME AND I LOVE THE COLOUR I HAVE CHOSEN, AQUA BLUE, NOT ONLY FOR ITS COLOUR BUT THE VERSATILITY AND DURABILITY OF THAT COLOUR TOO, EVEN ON A GREY DRIZZLY DAY THE BAG LOOKS SHARP AND READY FOR ACTION – MAYBE MORE THAN IT’S OWNER SOME DAYS!!
ANOTHER NOTICEABLE THING ABOUT THE NEWER RELEASE OF THE BAG ARE THE CARRY STRAPS, WHICH SEEM MORE PADDED, BUT HAVE A WAFFLE EFFECT TO THEM WHICH SEEMS TO STOP THEM TWISTING AS YOU THROW YOUR BAG ONTO YOU SHOULDER. WHILST I DO LIKE THE EXTRA PADDING WHEN CARRYING THE BAG, I AM NOT SO SURE ABOUT THE WAFFLE EFFECT WHICH IS A BIT SCRATCHY WHEN WEARING SLEEVELESS GOLF SHIRTS AS YOU DRAG IT UP YOUR ARM BEFORE IT COMES TO REST ON THE SHOULDERS, WHERE IT DOES SIT COMFORTABLY ONCE ON.
THE POCKETS ARE OF A GOOD SIZE AND WHILST BULGING DURING THAT IFFY SEASON OF WATERPROOFS ON WATERPROOFS OFF, THEY DO TAKE EVERYTHING A GIRL SHOULD NEED FOR GOLFING. THE POP OUT LEGS ARE STURDY AND SO LONG AS THEY ARE PROTECTED BY BEING HOOKED BACK WHEN USING THE BAG ON A CART, SHOULD LAST A LONG TIME WITH THE DURABLE MECHANISM IN PLACE.
A LITTLE VELVET LINED POCKET FOR THE BITS AND BOBS IS A NICE TOUCH BUT A BIT OF A NUISANCE WHEN YOUR HANDS ARE WET AND THE VELVET STICKS TO THEM AS YOU’RE IN AND OUT OF THE POCKET. THE BALL POCKET IS PLENTY BIG ENOUGH FOR EVEN THE MOST WAYWARD OF PLAYERS COLLECTION OF BALLS, BUT I DO THINK THAT THERE SHOULD HAVE A 2-WAY ZIP AS THE BALLS COULD FALL OUT WHEN CARRYING THE BAG IF LEFT UNOPENED. THE THREE WAY DIVIDER FOR THE CLUBS ARE OF A GOOD SIZE TO GET THE FULL SET OF CLUBS IN EASILY HOWEVER DURING WET GAMES I HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO INADVERTENTLY GROUP ALL MY CLUBS TOGETHER IN ONE OF THE 3 AVAILABLE DIVIDERS FOR EASE OF ACCESS CREATING A PICK UP STICKS MOMENT AS I PULL OUT MORE THAN ONE CLUB IN A HURRY TO GET OUT OF THE RAIN – USER ERROR!
WITH THE FRONT BALL POCKET BEING BLANK ENABLES EMBROIDERY OF YOUR COMPANY NAME, ALWAYS A GOOD BRANDING EXERCISE AND ONE I AM GLAD SUN MOUNTAIN HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT IN ADVANCE TO OFFER THEIR CUSTOMERS MORE REASONS TO BUY THEIR PRODUCTS.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE, THE WATERPROOF FEATURE ONLY WORKS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE HOOD – MIGHT BE A SILLY STATEMENT TO MAKE, BUT I HAVE SEEN OTHERS PLAYING GOLF IN THE RAIN WITHOUT THE HOOD THEN COMPLAINING THAT THEIR CLUBS ARE WET!
HAVING A CARRY BAG IS ONE OF THE MOST USEFUL PIECES OF FLEXIBLE EQUIPMENT A GOLFER COULD OWN AS IT LENDS ITSELF TO PLAYING LOCALLY AS WELL TRAVELLING, WITHOUT COMPROMISE. THE SUN MOUNTAIN CARRY BAG IS NO EXCEPTION TO THIS, COMBINING STYLE AND PRACTICALITY
IN SHORT I LOVE THE SUN MOUNTAIN H2NO ULTRA LITE CARRY BAG AND WOULDN’T HESITATE RECOMMENDING IT TO GOLFERS.
- I have been in the golf industry for nearly 10 years and events for even longer and I just want to give something back to the sport I love and what better way to do that than to encourage others get into the game
- Working for myself I don’t get the opportunity to go on in-house company training courses, this is a way I can keep not only my brain active but also show a continued commitment to Golf.
