Golf Holidays

Play the ball as it lies, play the course as you find it, and if you cannot do either, do what is fair.


It's the principle that underlies the great game of golf and it's a principle to be proud of. So what to do if the "course as you find it" could do with a change? You could always take a golfing holiday.

Golfing wisdom

  • 99.99% of the universe is empty space, but that last .01% will stop a golf ball dead
  • A schoolteacher was taking their first golfing lesson. "Is the word spelt p-u-t or p-u-t-t?" they asked the instructor. "P-u-t-t is correct," he replied. "Put means to place a thing where you want it. Putt means merely a vain attempt to do the same thing."
  • If you're having a bad round just remember - you're getting more value per stroke than anyone else is.
  • A golfer was at the 150 marker, pulled a club, turned to his friend and said "Do you think I can get there with an 8 iron?", the other chap replied, "Absolutely... how many times are you going to hit it?"
  • There are four forces affecting the motion of a golf ball:
    1. Gravity, which causes the ball to drop suddenly into hazards
    2. Electromagnetism, which makes the ball curve sharply towards whichever of the earth's poles is closest to the Out of Bounds stakes
    3. The Weak Force, which makes the ball dribble to the ladies' tee
    4. The Strong Force, which propels the ball directly towards a foursome of personal injury- lawyers in the adjacent fairway
  • A ball at rest on a steep slope will tend to remain at rest until the moment it is addressed
