I wouldn’t describe myself as a world golf traveller. Not even in Germany, my home country, I’ve seen that many golf courses. But I started to appreciate the feel to come around, have a good time on vacation, getting to know the people and start playing and discovering a new course to gather new experiences. Golf is perfect for that. It’s so easy to combine golf and travel and therefore everywhere I go, I prepare and try to squeeze in a round of golf, or two.

2011 I moved to England. The British isles obviously are famous for their outstanding golf courses, so I was looking forward to new experiences with links courses and their grand heritage of golf. Truth been told, in more than two years I managed to play golf only 5 times. That was the ultimate low in my game.

Then I came back to Germany in 2014 with a new mindset and started to bring my golf and my hunt for great courses to a new level.

The list of golf courses I already played is short, I know. It’s too short from my current perspective, so I plan to emphasise my golfing efforts not only to decrease my personal handicap but to play as many beautiful courses around the world as well. That should be one of the major topics of my future and hence of this blog’s future.
