About

I owe my passion for golf to my fanatical golfing father who, 40 years ago introduced me to this unique game, and who used to drag me out to caddy for him at the weekend and pay me in golf balls and bacon butties! My story is similar to countless others, however mine has developed into more of an obsession and a relentless pursuit to improve, so I’m bringing you along for the ride.

Birdieable came about because it was hard to find a site that had something else to offer outside of either instructional or equipment sales. This is my attempt to offer up a portal into a different and altogether more enjoyable experience for the everyday golfer, irrespective of standard. I hope you like it.

After all, “golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at.”

How can you get the best from this site?

Apart from tips, videos, and reviews of equipment and where to find them online, you will also be able to:

  • Tap into some great golfing anecdotes from the pros
  • Read my (and my guest) reviews of some great golfing holiday destinations. Some are not so common!
  • Gadget corner
  • Monthly features

How can you help this site?

I welcome any feedback both positive and negative, so leave me comments and I will take any recommendations or criticisms into consideration. This site is a one-man job, so the more help I get from real users, the better it will become.

How can you contact me?

You can use this simple contact form or you can email me at contact@birdieable.com

I check comments daily, but as you can probably understand, emails take some sifting through. Let’s play!
