Your Golf Travel’s Digital Content Creator Rory is often on the road, scoping out courses all over the world to give you a sneak peek into what’s on offer for your next golf holiday.
From well known venues such as Celtic Manor in Wales to courses you may never have heard of including the likes of Teluk Datai in Malaysia, his vlogs are here to inspire you and show you how an 'average, everyday, handicap golfer' can access and enjoy courses you didn’t even know you wanted to play!
It had been a long couple of days by the time Sophie and I arrived at the Westin La Quinta Resort, and me missing the junction TWICE on the way to the course meant we were basically running to the first tee when we got there!
Hopefully, that's a good enough excuse as to why our golf wasn't particularly good for the first few holes, but as you'll see from the video, La Quinta is a really fun, playable course. Watch the vlog and check out the front nine, where Sophie and I are playing a 2-person Texas Scramble...how low can we go?!Book a Golf Break to La Quinta
Having worked for Your Golf Travel since 2011, I’ve been lucky enough to play golf around the globe, in 23 countries and counting. It has opened my eyes to just how many incredible but unique courses there really are.
My favourite course has to be Pinnacle Point with The European Club & Tralee as close runners up, but if we’re talking Golf Destination as a whole, I’m voting for South Africa. The golf is amazing, but combined with the off-courses activities including safari, it really is the holiday of dreams.

Drop me an email, but The Manor House in Wiltshire ticks the boxes for me...I would live there if I could.

It goes without saying that The Masters is a bonafide bucketlist event for golfers, and while I've been super lucky to have attended the 2015, 2017, 2018 & 2019 tournaments with Your Golf Travel, I still haven't had anywhere near my fill of Augusta National!Walking the course is a real eye opener (Augusta National is just as picture perfect as you imagine) and the atmosphere is unreal, especially around my favourite corner of the course down near the par 3 16th. Luckily, I saw Tiger win his 15th major last year and was lucky enough to have my dad alongside me which was really special...especially seeing as we headed to Kiawah Island for a round on the Ocean Course following the event. I can't recommend it enough!
Your Golf Travel presents the Lee Westwood 3 Hole Wildcard Challenge. Can a 7 handicap golfer (YGT Rory) beat a former World Number One golfer?
Filmed at The Els Club Dubai, this 3 Hole Golf Challenge pits a former World Number One Golfer vs a club golfer, Rory from Your Golf Travel...but there's a twist!
Lee Westwood may have won 24 times on the European Tour, as well as playing in 10 Ryder Cup Teams, but Rory is armed with 3 Wildcards which will hopefully trip Lee up along the way.
