Sergio Garcia must pay over $1 million in fines before he can rejoin the DP World Tour according to the Telegraph. The Spaniard, who has won 16 times on the European circuit, raised eyebrows when he said he’d return to the tour in 2024 when speaking on the Rick Shiels Golf Show last November, but in footage that was posted in February. “I am going to be a member again of the European Tour next year,” he declared. “So I will play my four events or something like that, so if I do well in those, then maybe I can get myself in (the majors) somehow, so there’s a couple of ways.” Garcia joined LIV G ..read more

This historic Scottish club really needs your help

They’ve been playing golf at Fortrose & Rosemarkie since 1793 – but the 15th oldest recorded club in the world have never been so battered by the elements. The Highlands club suffered some of the worst damage in their history when Storm Ciaran wrought havoc at the end of October last year. They were far from the only course to have felt the bitter hand of Mother Nature down the Scottish east coast, but the damage left behind by the gales and driving rain left a significant mark. Fortrose & Rosemarkie Golf Club had already set up a sub-committee looking at coastal erosion as 2022 came t ..read more

With water up to his chest, Jez Ward walked into the greenkeepers’ shed at Renishaw Park to a scene of devastation. His office was flooded, years of paperwork washed away, and thousands of pounds worth of equipment and machinery damaged irreparably. “It’s pit of your stomach stuff,” said Jez, who found himself out of work when the operators of Renishaw Park decided the damage was too great to overcome and closed the club for good in December 2023. The winter of 2023 into 2024 has been marked by severe wet weather – in fact the downpours began in July and rarely let up. When you’re paying yearl ..read more

Gale force winds? Driving drizzle? These are ideal conditions for golf!
National Club Golfer Magazine
by Steve Carroll
2d ago
There’s a popular misconception that golf is a summer game – it’s not. Serious golf starts around the first major frost in early November and runs right through to when the cuckoo arrives in early April. It’s no coincidence that Scotland, where golf was first devised as an alternative to watching Rangers and Celtic’s dreary footballing duopoly, the season lasts very much longer. Oh how I envy the Scots their gale force winds, driving drizzle and Arctic temperatures, for these are ideal conditions in which to play the game. First of all, this is how golf’s pioneers envisaged it. Why else, do yo ..read more

This is what it should mean when golf talks about “growing the game”. Seaton Carew GC are giving free membership to junior golfers under 18.

Paul Lawrie: Golf club memberships aren’t expensive – but you need to play
National Club Golfer Magazine

Use your membership and playing golf will become less expensive. That is the advice of former Open champion Paul Lawrie. The Scotsman runs his own golf centre in Aberdeen which charges £330 per year for an adult to use the golf course, the driving range, the short game area and other amenities. But if someone purchases a membership at the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre and rarely uses it, they could be paying over £300 to visit a putting green. Lawrie, who took over the facility in 2012, believes the value of golf club memberships rests on how often you play golf and explains how the game can become ..read more
