No course reviews here. We love the variety and interest different courses bring and we’ll bring you some interesting facts and figures but reviews aren’t us.

Talking of interesting facts and figures, how long is the Church Pews bunker at Oakmont?

  • The Church Pews bunker is just over 100 yards long! That’s some damn mean bunker!
  • It has 12 ‘berms’, each around three feet high and there’s about five yards of sand between each berm.
  • If you ever get the chance to play Oakmont, we suggest you avoid the Church Pews bunker.
  • And in the meantime, if you’d like to read more about them this is an excellent golf.com article and picture.

We like the golf orientation and for those that want to keep score this is a way. A birdie if you get the correct answer without a clue. A par if you get it right using the clue. A bogey if you don’t manage a correct answer.

  • Did you beat you friend’s scores?
  • Is your ongoing score trending up or down?

The world is a big place and golf is a big game – there’s lots for us to talk about. Oh, and we’re just a little bit brilliant!

SUBSCRIBE NOW SO YOU CAN SEE IF WE ARE IN FACT A LITTLE BIT BRILLIANT OR JUST FULL OF BS

Yes, if you’re sure of a mistake please let us know. We work hard to verify our information but, to be honest, we’re not really as brilliant as we’d like and no doubt there will be an error or two along the way.

Absolutely. We’d love to hear from you. It has to be worthy – we truly care about what we put in front of our community - and if you're up for it we'd welcome your input.

If you’d like to contribute – and we’ll give appropriate acknowledgement - here are some guidelines:

  1. It has to be about something we’ve not previously addressed.
  2. It has to be interesting enough for our readers (our judgement call, no correspondence entered into).
  3. It has to include ‘further reading’ and links. It’s important to us that we help our fellow golfers on the occasions they’d like to learn more.

If we choose to use your question(s) we'll let you know in advance of the publish date. Due to the volume of correspondence received we cannot guarantee a reply in relation to questions not used.
