Over the years I have enjoyed some of the best days playing golf. Occasionally its the company, rarely its how well I play, its always the post analysis conversation but more often than not its just that experience of being out in the fresh air taking in a gorgeous manicured course, having a giggle and attempting to master a game that challenges your mind and your ability at every dogleg turn.

Whilst I could write resort blogs coupled with some amusing stories about many a round and perhaps over time I will, I wanted to partner up with a golfing specialist who has the breadth of knowledge and experience in offering some of the best locations in the world to play the game.

It was a couple of years ago in the sporting mecca of Villamoura, Portugal, when at a late night bar, I found myself in one of those situations that we have all been in. While enjoying a beer with friends I was sat at the bar on my customary bar stool and I was looking at this bloke thinking I know him and sure enough he was looking at me thinking I know him!

Now as the years pass facial recognition remains strong but names always escape me and so sure enough we did indeed know each other, not that well, but well enough to then reminisce over many a travel industry event that we had attended over the previous two decades.

From that chance meeting we have kept in touch and with the development of this website, when it was a golfing specialist tour operator I needed, I knew just the man – Richard Axelsen of Front 9 Travel.
