My favourite course of 2022 was Grand Saint Emilionnais Golf Club in France. Although it wasn't in great shape. I had a wonderful time playing there in the best environment possible. It was a nice and easygoing experience with dogs wandering around, the course layout was amazing and the location of the course - in the middle of grape vines - is amazing. The location can't be more French!
I must say that I had multiple great and memorable moments on the golf course last year. I got the opportunity to play Le Golf National after the Cazoo Open de France, which is part of the DP World Tour. I played a reversible golf course in The Netherlands - The Links Valley - in two different directions on one day and I played De Swinkelsche from the black tees. In the end, the moment I cherish the most was at Le Golf National. The course maintenance was absolutely perfect, the weather was great and the fact that it's a Ryder Cup venue makes it quite special. All in all, it was a perfect experience.
For me it is all about golf, so the most important categories for me are the maintenance level and the location. Both categories, but especially the location can make a difference and make a golf course unique.
Max Homa and Garrett Clark. Max Homa is really one of the funniest golfers on the PGA Tour and Garrett Clark makes great content on YouTube and is part of Good Good Golf. I can highly recommend that channel.
I'm a Masters guy, so seeing Scottie Scheffler win was an amazing moment. Scheffler is around my age, so it is always cool to see this!
I don't have a list of courses I really want or need to play. But as I am responsible for France, Portugal and Italy, I would really love to play Circolo Golf Villa d'Este or Antognolla Golf Club, Monte Rei Golf and Country Club and a course at de Côte d’Opale. At least, I hope to play one of them this year.
Right now, I am a 12.8 handicapper and hope to definitely bring it down to a single digit!
