I don’t if this opportunity still exists, but in 2009 I completed playing the Top 100 courses in the British Isles. I also rated courses for Golf Monthly magazine in 2006. I was a12 year of Loch Lomond as well as Wentworth and Winged Foot in New York. I have a good eye courses write well. I would enjoy this opportunity. I still play at about an 8 handicap.
Who gets to do it?
75 years young would love to PLAY
Is the "allowance" of 750 Pounds in addition to airfare and ground transportation to and in Scotland? Or will the lucky winner have to transport her/himself all over Scotland? Thx
That sounds awesome!! The ideal golfers bucket list!!!
Love links golf learned to play on one. You learn the ground game thats required to be successful on a true links. Carry a 1 Iron still for those special kind of shots that a lot of players don't have. Have a Scotch Irish heritage so this would be awesome.
Sounds like a true dream job. I have played golf in many different countries and a true fanatic with a 2 handicap. I have been working in international business all my life and would welcome a job change at my age 55.
How could you ever have a better job than this. Golfing every day and playing on the Most famous courses in the world.
That would be amazing.! I have been lucky enough to play the OLD COURSE, CARNOUSTIE, KINGSBARNS, and the NEW COURSE. Unfortunately, my group was monsooned out! and we could not finish the back nine at CARNOUSTIE. I already have an (insiders Knowledge )??? at these courses. Back to CARNOUSTIE, we were so wet we had to strip down to nothing in the locker room. No towels were available so we used the hair dryers for ourselves and our clothes. Once dry we walked outside, looked across the bay and saw 4 sun streams thru the clouds illuminating St. Andrews. We took it as a sign. We'll always come back! Changing gears, I had once played 54 holes in one day. That was at age 65, I'm 67 now ready to rock it
WOW!! What a dream trip that would be. I’m am 65 now and a true golf fanatic. My dad introduced me to the game when I was 9 or 10 but never had the opportunity to play on a course till I was 13. When growing up down the street from me there was an Arnold Palmer putt putt course where every Tuesday for a dollar there as a tournament. I won it once and got a small trophy. I wish I could find that thing today. I remember crying like a baby when hearing my favorite golfer, Tony Lema, died in a plane crash. After that I started to followed Jack Nicklaus.
My wife says I love golf more than her but I tell her I love her more than basketball, baseball and football so she has that going for her.
In 2008 I redesigned my entire back yard and built a golf practice area. I installed a putting green and a large practice net. My wife drew the line when I wanted a sand trap though.
In 2016 I had the opportunity to walk a practice round at Augusta National. It’s the closest I’ve come to heaven so far.
I had my 1st hole in one last year at Duran golf Club in Florida. That 52 years of practice finally paid off.
Not sure I could do 14 rounds in 14 days but I’d damn well give it all I had.
