About

Not all those who wander are lost

J.R.R. Tolkien

The Wandering Golfers is, at its heart, about storytelling. The way we consume stories may be changing all the time but we believe there is always a place for a story which can transport you to another place, however briefly. 

Golf, of course, is our shared passion as a group of writers, photographers and journalists. Between us, we have covered every major championship as well as Ryder Cups and the Olympic Games.  We have interviewed the biggest names in the game and even shared a round or two with them. But golf, at its heart, is about so much more. It teaches us patience, focus, integrity  and friendship but it also invites us make the world a smaller place by going out into it to embrace sights and sounds of places far from home until all that is foreign becomes familiar and strangers become new friends. We will take that ethos with us as we travel in search of adventure and original, authentic stories around the game of golf. 

And our promise to you, our readers, is that we will take you along for the ride and open your eyes the courses you cannot afford not to play and the places you must visit.

What they say...

What a lovely write-up for a very special golf course

The Wandering Golfers completely captured the essence of Fixby with their article about their visit.  Attention was paid not only to the course itself, but also the history and make up of our club so that a reader considering a visit would be aware of everything of relevance and much besides!
