President GC, West Palm Beach, Florida – Stunning Sunset Lights Up Course.

The President Golf Club has been our virtual back-yard for the past week and it’s been great to drive even a shorter distance to the course than the near two-minute drive to my ‘home’ course – Crail Golfing Society. The Club here as West Palm Beach offers an attractive ‘twilight’ fee and thanks to Scott Mailloux, Director of Golf, I’ve enjoyed tackling the Robert Trent Jones gem. However one of the most captive sights in playing the course late in the afternoon ...

President Golf Club, West Palm Beach Gets Presidential Seal Of Approval.

You could be mistaken you were making your way to Capitol Hill in Washington D.C, and the seat of government in the United States rather than a golf course in sun-splashed Florida. I say this only because in heading to the Eagle Course at the President Golf Club in West Palm Beach you drive along Congress Drive before turning into Presidential Ave and passing by streets named Embassy Drive and Consulate Place. The course is lined with residential buildings with names such as Lincoln, Jefferson, Parliament ...

Lake of Isles Golf Club, Connecticut (150)

Lake Of Isles – Connecticut Golf At Its Best.

Being first out on this glorious morning on the North Course at the Lake of Isles Golf Club immediately reminded me of one of those initial golf theme MasterCard ‘Priceless’ TV commercials. It was just after 7am with the air still and the sun just starting to peek above the tree line. I had been invited to head to the practice range but politely declined as I did not want to waste a minute being the first to tee off and for a first time in Connecticut. However let me rewind some 16 hours. I was ...

Joakim Haeggman Savours First Visit To Crail’s Balcomie Links.

Joakim Haeggman was the first Swedish-born golfer to compete in the Ryder Cup and a day after attending the 2014 Ryder Cup he was thrilled after a first visit to the Crail Golfing Society. Haeggman joined a group of eight players who are members of the Kalmar Golf Club, a 36-hole complex located around a four-hour drive south-east of Stockholm.  The club was founded in 1947 and is notable as the first hole of the Old Course requires a tee shot over a portion of the Baltic Sea. It was a special ...

Crail’s Balcomie Links Wins Marc Warren’s Praise.

Leading Scottish golfer Marc Warren was full of praise after a first round of golf on Crail’s famed Balcomie Links course. The three-time European Tour champion visited the club on the eve of the opening day of the 2014 Ryder Cup and where Warren was heading to ‘soak in’ the atmosphere of biennial competition and on the PGA Centenary course where in 2007 Warren captured the Johnnie Walker Championship and the same year he teamed with Colin Montgomerie to deliver Scotland victory ...
