Inside Golf - - News -

A SWEDISH golfer with a long-time pas­sion for links golf has de­cided to take on an amaz­ing ad­ven­ture: play the great­est 50 links golf course around the world in 100 con­sec­u­tive days. Start­ing this month. Jan Rem­melg will tee off in an at­tempt to ex­pe­ri­ence true links golf at its best and, more im­por­tantly, share the ex­pe­ri­ence and pas­sion with fel­low golfers around the world.

Coun­tries on Rem­melg’s itin­er­ary in­clude the Repub­lic of Ire­land, North­ern Ire­land, Scot­land, Eng­land, Wales, USA, New Zealand, Aus­tralia and South Africa. The cour­ses will in­clude Carnoustie, St An­drews, Peb­ble Beach, Ban­don Dunes and a host of other top-rated lay­outs. In New Zealand (11th to 16th Novem­ber) he will play Para­pa­raumu Beach Golf, Kin­loch Golf Club, Cape Kid­nap­pers and Kauri Cliffs. His Aus­tralian tour (20th to 29th Novem­ber) will in­clude New South Wales Golf Club, Barn­bougle Dunes & Lost Farm, The Royal Mel­bourne Golf Club, The Dunes Golf Links and The Na­tional Golf Club.

He will be joined by golf­ing friends on dif­fer­ent parts of this jour­ney. The ex­pe­ri­ence will be filmed and pho­tographed along the way, with in­ter­views of key peo­ple at the dif­fer­ent golf clubs (the Cap­tain, the pro, a cad­die, the bar­tender, play­ers, etc). The footage will be com­piled into a doc­u­men­tary which is hoped to cap­ture and share the gen­uine pas­sion for links golf.
