Sarah has written for many magazines and publications over the years and is well known in the golf industry as a female specialist. She will be taking copious notes as well as managing the couple’s social media platforms and back up photography.

Together they produce short YouTube vlogs in an easy to digest format based on experience from a male and female club golfer – their unique ‘scoring system’ now reflects their average scores for each course they visit.

They say: “Africa continues to be a mystifying continent with so many unknowns, we want to show what we experience to help others enjoy their next trip – whether it is for golf or not. We want to continue to inspire and influence those golfers over the age of 50, without alienating any golfers or adventurers. Together they plan to show the real Africa with a huge pinch of golf in their unique unbiased friendly and honest way.”
