Golf Sketch solved my problem of finding that special gift for my golf buddies

It’s rarely that a day goes by that someone isn’t looking for golf bloggers to promote their latest golf-related product, book or service. Don’t get me wrong I love doing product and course reviews, but I want to see it, feel it and try it before I’ll write about it.

So when Nick O’Connell wrote me (and some other bloggers) and asked us to check out his site,, I was a bit reluctant. But I liked the idea of a golf calendar full of links hole sketches, and so I took a look. I am so glad that I did.

Flipping through the pages of Nick’s calendar I was reminded of how much I love links golf. Having only played 2 “true” links courses in my life (Chambers Bay and Kings Links), I feel I’ve missed out on so much of the tradition and history of golf by sticking to my comfort zone of parkland courses.

Nick and his site reminded me that I am long overdue booking a golf vacation in the UK to play courses I’ve been longing to play for so long…

Courses like Ballybunion – the end of the road for Tom Coyne in “A Course Called Ireland“.

Or Royal County Down. Tom Watson called it, “a tremendous test of golf and the outward half especially is as fine a nine holes as I have ever played.”

Or Wale’s Royal Porthcawl – some say the truest test of links golf you’ll ever find.

Never one to accept anything at face value I decided I wanted to learn more about Nick, his work, and the direction he wants to take So, as I’ve been known to do…I called him last week for a chat…

I just received my calendar and cards in the mail today and they are everything I’d hope they would be – elegant and beautiful. I can’t wait to give some to my friends this Xmas.
