reviewed Allegria Golf Club
Fabulous

One of Troon Golf’s most exciting new projects is the Allegria Golf Club in Egypt. Just a week before Christmas I’m on my way to Heathrow for my flight to Cairo when I get a call on my Mobile, “Kevin It’s Klaas, turn back if you can we are in the middle of a sand storm will rearrange for after Christmas” So take 2 we are now in the middle of snow storms in the South of England, again I make my way to Heathrow, the flight is delayed for an hour which was ok! We boarded… and 9 hours later finally took off just in time before the crew went out of hours. Got a cab straight to the Allegria golf course and got on with business. The Greg Norman-designed layout is situated within close proximity to the centre of Cairo, Egypt and sits in the shadows of the ancient pyramids of Giza. The course is surrounded by new housing developements, whereas the course was ready there is still away to go with the buildings. Whilst development is still ongoing with the residential communities, the overriding sense you leave Allegria with is that Egypt has set a marker out for golf and attracting not only the local market, but also appealing to the international golfer and traveller. I think the golf course is something special. A playable and fun test. I’m looking forward to going back as this destination will be one to watch in the future.’

reviewed St Andrews - The Castle Course
Fabulous

Icon publishers are going to produce a book of my photographs based on all of the courses around St Andrews. Before my trip to Alabama I needed to fit in a very quick trip to St Andrews to cover the famous new Castle Course. I played it in very bad weather conditions and I don’t think I’ve ever been so wet on a golf course. It made taking images nearly impossible. However what a fantastic track the course is!

reviewed Mazagan Golf Club
Fabulous

Just back from a 3 day trip to Morocco where I was commissioned by Troon Golf to cover the fantastic new Gary Player golf course at the Mazagan Golf Resort. I was picked up from Casablanca airport where a 70 minute cab journey delivered me to the resort. I was met there by ex tour player and now director of Golf Stephane Talbot. Over the next 3 days Stephan guided me around the course and helped me pick some of the key locations to get the best shots. The climate in this part of Morocco is ideal for all year round golf, The course is in fantastic condition and will be a great test especially when the wind blows.

reviewed Trump International Golf Links Doonbeg
Fabulous

When Jezz Ellwood from Golf Monthly called me to ask if I was interested in a trip to go play and shoot Doonbeg, I’m sure he could sense the massive grin that was taking over my face. From the first time I saw the press images of Doonbeg I knew that it was a course I would have to cover. So I met Jezz at Gatwick to catch the Ryan-air flight into Shannon, We should have landed at about 5.00 but let’s just say the traditional on time fanfare was distinctively conspicuous in it’s absence. We picked up our hire car just after 7pm and made our way over to the West Coast, a trip of about 50 minutes for a mere mortal but only 35 for Jezza Fittapaldi. After a very warm welcome we were on a mission to see if we could get at least 9 holes in before it was dark. My first impression of the location was awesome, apparently the famous Lahinch course was first considered to be on this great stretch of coast but because of lack of communications and transport ended up a few miles further North. We managed to play several holes and could have played more but we would have missed supper, that wasn’t going to happen. The sunset was brilliant and I managed to get a few shots in the bag. We played it the next day where Jezz canned an Eagle putt on the long Par 5 8th to go several Up! Our final round was on Sunday, there was a 50 mph wind which chucked all sorts of weather at us but these conditions didn’t take away from the fun we had. Going out 1 was 2 over, coming back quite a few more over. Doonbeg would be right up there on my first page of the World’s great courses.
