From The Cabbage 2015 - a preview

So here we are. Less than one week to go before the start of what will be, quite possibly, the greatest golfing extravaganza ever seen. EVER.

OK, so that might be an exaggeration but it's certainly going to be a lot of fun. We have eight people, eight sets of golf clubs, four buggies and plenty of beer - what could possibly go wrong?

What have you been doing?

At the risk of being repetitive, I am extremely conscious of the paucity of content that I actually take/find the time to create & upload to this site, to the extent that I can't really count myself as a blogger. That self-flagellation aside, my 2015 has, thus far, yielded more golf experiences than I had expected and that's certainly been the silver lining to what was a 'testing' start to the year from an employment perspective. There has been a knock-on effect to golfing plans, the details of which are outlined here alongside a glimpse into what has gone before, plus what's to come in the second half of the year.

The Agony of False Hope

According to some statistical analysis, with all appropriate nods to Mark Twain, being capable of regularly shooting in the low/mid 80s (& occasionally threaten the high 70s) puts me in the relative elite of amateur golfers. So why are there so many occasions where this notion seems so fanciful?

2014 - my golfing year pt2

I had previously documented the array of golfing exploits from the first half of 2014 - this is the (long-overdue) second part of my review of a golfing year.

2014 - my golfing year pt1

Back in January, I had committed my thoughts to blog about what the golfing year would have in store for me. Now, re-reading that entry, some 11 months later, it's interesting to see what transpired and, as I will outline here, how many great things happened that could not have been predicted. I hope you enjoy reading it.

Harey Cup 2014 - Day 3

A relatively subdued Saturday night out in one of Marbella's finest tapas restaurants (best patatas bravas in Spain, allegedly) was, quite literally, the calm before the storm. I must have written a million times that superlatives are very easily overused, but 'biblical' wouldn't really do justice to the volume of water dumped on the Costa del Sol in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Harey Cup 2014 - day 2

The morning after the night before. The previous evening was a distant memory for (most of) the touring party when the sun crept over the mountains to signal the second day of the Harey Cup.

Harey Cup 2014 - day 1

It's here. After many weeks of anticipation, build-up and excitement, 10 intrepid golfers were ready to take on whatever challenges La Quinta could throw at them. The 2014 Harey Cup was underway.

2013 Harey Cup memories

I had a bit of a play with a new video app and I put together a little collection of snapshots from the 2013 Harey Cup at La Cala Resort, Spain. Enjoy...

Harey Cup 2014 - preview

One week. Just seven short days until the Harey Cup starts for the seventh time of asking so I thought I would do a little preview of what's to come.
