Hole 1 : On Course with Mickey

Mickey Walker

Some venues are hard to beat for a whole host of reasons. You will see on Hole 3 that for our Golfing Getaways we are once again returning to our annual favourite destinations of Fuerteventura in February and Turkey in April. We are always on the lookout for new places to go for a golf holiday but will be returning to Fuerteventura for our eighth year in a row and to Turkey for our twenty-first consecutive year because we love both these destinations and feel that the packages at both venues offer fantastic value for money. If you’re looking for that extra special golf holiday why not push the boat out and join us in Mauritius at the fabulous Heritage Le Telfair Resort. This will be the fourth time that we have taken a group there and it is another destination that we can’t get enough of!

The 2023 golfing season is now well underway and the British Summer in full swing, so we have four or five months of not just golf but lots of great sporting events to enjoy. As I write this the first match of this year’s Ashes series is underway, the second of this year’s men’s golfing majors, the U.S.Open is being played and then the second women’s major of the year,  the KPMG PGA Championship is next week. Following on from the French Open, Wimbledon is just a couple of weeks away! There is literally a whole Summer of great sport to enjoy! I feel sorry for people who don’t enjoy watching or participating in sport. With all the horrible things and conflicts happening all over the world at the moment, we all need something to escape to.

Sport for me and millions of others is an opportunity to immerse ourselves in something either individually or as part of a group that gives pleasure, real joy and escapism from the traumas occurring worldwide. In the early days of my professional golfing career I lived in America when there wasn’t the global access to watch sport that there is today. Nowadays I love having the chance to watch whatever sport I choose wherever I am. I hope that you all enjoy a great Summer of sport whether watching others excel or participating in competitions yourself or just for sheer fun!

Wishing everyone a very happy Sporting Summer!
