CLUB OF THE MONTH: Surfers Paradise Golf Club

CLUB OF THE MONTH: Surfers Paradise Golf Club

If you have ever been to the Gold Coast for a holiday, golfing or not, and you have flown into Coolangatta Airport you will be familiar with the sight. As the plane banks left over the ocean and heads west for the final approach, the long strip of beach and the seemingly endless stand of high rise apartments that stretch north come into view to the right. It is an iconic view that is stereotypically Gold Coast. 7 Nov 2018

Huggan: Why the Hall needs a proper home

Huggan: Why the Hall needs a proper home

Greetings from St. Andrews and the Senior Open Championship. Looking out from the media centre to the right of the 1st fairway on the Old Course, I can see a small tent. On the front it reads “World Golf Hall of Fame.” The actual hall is nowhere near the East Neuk of Fife of course. It is in St. Augustine, Florida, not coincidentally close to the headquarters of the PGA Tour along the road in Ponte Vedra. 1 Nov 2018
Ogilvy: Why the cream rose to the top at Carnoustie

Ogilvy: Why the cream rose to the top at Carnoustie

Like many people, I watched the Open Championship at Carnoustie and marvelled at how far the ball was running on the fairways. It was great to see, even if it isn’t something you would want to experience every week. It is just too relentless and, at times, flukey. I lost count of how many times players misjudged how far their shots were going to bounce and roll before eventually stopping. 31 Oct 2018

Player profile: Coletta’s way

Player profile: Coletta’s way

Brett Coletta had incredible success in his few last weeks as an amateur in 2016. But what followed when he turned pro was self-doubt and a form of rookie burnout that forced him to take an extended break from the game last year. Now, he’s back. He’s happy and the game is in good shape as he prepares to climb the next rung towards making the PGA Tour. 30 Oct 2018
