The season for giving is of course a big commercial success, especially for golfers who will often end up receiving some of the latest golfing equipment as part of their festive booty.

Why Europe’s Top Golfers Should be Shamed by their Seve Trophy Snub

Few people who witnessed it will forget the amazing scenes at Medinah in the 2012 Ryder Cup when Team Europe overturned a 10-6 deficit on the final day to record an amazing and unlikely victory. So many players in the team said that they channelled inspiration from the late, great Seve Ballesteros, who’s unmistakable figure adorned their bags.

Nor will anyone forget team captain Jose Maria Olazabal’s emotional speech after victory was confirmed when the Spaniard broke down in tears dedicating the incredible victory to his late friend.

Yet barely 12-months later, the event that carries his name saw a team of European golfers take on a team from UK and Ireland last month to compete for the Seve Trophy in less than auspicious circumstances.

What is Better Than No Golf This Winter? Snow Golf!

As the night’s draw in and the temperatures start to drop, the first taste of winter hangs in the air, reminding golfers that it is the time of the year when only the hardiest can venture out into the course.  Whether it is because of dwindling daylight hours, plummeting temperatures, waterlogged, frozen or snowbound courses, there are many reasons why only the bravest golfers venture out onto the fairways at this time of year.

But does that have to be the case? Do we really need our fairways and greens to be fair and green?

The answer is, no you don’t, especially if you fancy trying your hand at snow golf.

Not-so-Crazy Golf? Championship Adventure Golf‘s new approach to an old favourite

Crazy Golf has been around in many forms for many years. Indeed, there is now a world championship for the game which sees competitors using a putter and a golf ball to work their way around all sorts of manic obstacles in as few shots as possible.

For many years, the sites of windmills, large ducks, helter-skelters, ramps and more always signified a Crazy Golf course. Their appeal for people tended to focus more on the Crazy aspect of the name, rather than the golf. However, that could be set to change.
