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.
For golf, southern hospitality, good food, the climate and a whole lot more….
This is my story June 2014
Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head and Charleston all spring to mind when thinking about South Carolina, and so they should and visit you should, but the State of South Carolina can offer so much more too..
With almost 100 golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area, playing but 2 and half rounds of golf barely makes a dent in what’s available. Before I wander my mind to the lovely Myrtle Beach area, I’ve got to mention up-state South Carolina – almost a contradiction in grammar, I flew into Greenville via Atlanta where I bumped into my Colombian buddy Fernando – so I knew we were in for a good trip!
A lovely group of people met us from all over the globe – all golf tour operators, all fun people ready to tackle the golf and what up-state had to offer.
As with most of these trips there is so much to see we often run out of time, so day one was meant to be 36 holes – we managed 27; 18 on River Falls and 9 on Cherokee Valley. Playing with Ricky from South Carolina, Ronnie from Sweden and the infamous Fernando from Colombia at River Falls, we negotiated the undulations, valleys and managed a win on the final putt! after 18 holes – not a bad result as team Colombiweed (Colombia and Sweden) had 2 shots more than the dream team of red white and blue (UK and USA). As River Falls was quite a short course for ladies, Ronnie decided that if Ricky and I were winning, I had to play off the tees one back from the reds (belle), I played a lot of holes from the Golds (Womens plantation), until team Colombiweed dug their heels in and I got to play from the very short Belle tees. Fair compromise – and I got to see two sets of tees! Belle tees measure 4775 yards, women’s plantation tees measured 5634. A lovely Gary Player signature course. Continue reading
If you haven’t played golf or even visited the area of Carnoustie – you are missing something in life that everyone should experience at least once in their golfing lifetime.

Participating in the Carnoustie Classic with about 140 other contestants of mixed abilities, both male and female from countries in Europe to further afield as Australia and USA making this a truly international and amazing fun event.

Argentina might not be the first place that springs to mind when one thinks about a golf holiday, but the reality is – why not?
It’s got everything you need for a great time golfing and offers so much more too….
Here’s my experience when I went a couple of weeks ago.
Firstly being a Brit I was ‘warned’ of the conflict over the Malvinas (Falklands), and whilst meant in a caring way, there really was no need to worry – I want to dispel any myths that we Brits are not welcome in Argentina, I was treated no differently to any other golfer on holiday in a courteous manor and with respect as a fellow golfer or holiday maker.
Political stuff out of the way -this is how it really was.
After a long flight I arrived early enough to have the whole day in Buenos Aires, at that point any sensible person would have gone to bed to recover from the flight in readiness for the welcome party that evening – I’m not sensible and went to play golf at Argentino Golf Club and managed 9 holes.

The right place at the right time happened to me recently. At the World Travel Market in London I met with the great chaps from Aphrodite Hills and the Cyprus Tourist Office (CTO) enthusing about future plans for Red Tee Breaks I unexpectedly get an invite to join a group of 12 golf pros on their visit to Cyprus. Mindful of the broken wrist, the fact I wouldn’t have played for three months and they were – well golf pros – I tentatively said yes and quickly booked a lesson with my pro Tim.
Tim assured me I was hitting the ball as normal as before and didn’t seem to be favouring the wrist too much. I met with the pro’s at the airport with new found confidence this soon dwindled as I found out that there were meant to be 12 pro’s and me and I’d be playing with Costas from the CTO and Andreas from Aphrodite Hills. One pro, Barry, dropped out and I became the 12th golfer leaving Costas and Andreas to fend for themselves.
From that point I became Barry, but thankfully retained my handicap and played off the red’s. Continue reading

For those of you that haven’t played the fantastic Ross-on-Wye, you won’t know that there are plenty of trees lining the fairways, the first is one such hole, and whilst it seemed pitch black as we drove those first balls, once we walked 500 yards to our drive (yeah right!) it seemed much lighter for just being out of the trees. Rob and his green keeping staff at Ross should take all the credit for the course- it is in very good condition.
