A member of the Metropolitan Golf Club for over 55 years, playing from a single figure handicap for 40 of those years, and a Foundation Member of The National Golf Club, he has a deep knowledge and love for the game, which is translated into the paintings that he produces of many of the great courses of the world.
His work adorns the walls of Golf Clubs in many countries, including the R&A. St. Andrews; The Ryder Cup Room, Wentworth Golf Club, U.K.; World Golf Hall of Fame USA; Royal Wellington G.C. N.Z.; Royal Melbourne, Royal Sydney, The Australian, Commonwealth, Kingston Heath ,Kingswood, Metropolitan, Huntingdale, Riversdale, Peninsula, Victoria, Yarra Yarra, The Dunes, Flinders, Woodlands, The National and many more.
His painting " The
Eighteenth. St. Andrews" was reproduced on the 1994 Christmas Card of
the United States Golf Association.
His work is included in the
definitive reference book
