Did you know?

Snedeker was introduced to the game of golf by his maternal grandmother who managed a golf course in Missouri. He graduated from Vanderbilt University in his home city of Nashville, Tennessee in 2003, the same year as he won the US Amateur Public Links Championship. He turned professional in 2004.

After two years on the Nationwide Tour, "Sneds" joined the US PGA Tour in 2007. He announced his presence with a course-record equalling 61 on Torrey Pines' North Course in the first round of the Buick Invitational (a tournament in which he finished third). Snedeker's peers voted him Rookie of the Year for 2007, and his earnings of $2.8 million are the largest ever by a rookie.

Several notable PGA Tour wins followed in ensuing years, including the Tour Championship in 2012, two Pebble Beach National Pro-Ams, a Canadian Open and the coveted and lucrative FedEx Cup. In winning the 2018 Wyndham Championship, Sneds became the tenth player to shoot a sub-60 round on the PGA Tour.

The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
