10644906_824128987608676_216398283272780410_nWhile the list of courses I have played fortunately becomes longer and longer, one could believe the list of courses I’d love to play in the future would get shorter and shorter… so wrong! There are so many interesting courses in the world, I basically think one lifetime is not enough to play the most beautiful courses out there.

For that reason I maintain this list – a collection of the world’s greatest golf courses which I intend to play at some point. It might be a tricky goal to reach, but definitely a target worth striving for. If you just imagine the sheer attractiveness of all these courses in their very own setting around the world, be it a links style, a true parkland or next to a coast – I get goosebumps just thinking of it…
