Congratulations on the set up of the web site, just like the tournament itself, it's 1st class. Hitting the web site just a couple of times over the long cold winters in Canada will bring me back to some fond memories of new and old friends at "The 'Bush". Congratulations also to my good pal, Paul Sneddon, great job!

I own and run a small golf magazine in Australia titled Hacker Golf Quarterly.
I have published a few articles on golf in Ireland/Scotland and in my next issue I'm running an article by a local bloke that played in the Bushmill tournament in 2001.
I searched the web and found your wonderful tribute site.
Well done, and don't be surprised if, in the next couple of years, 4-8 hackers come over from Australia trying to take out the coverted prize - seeing who can drink the most Guinness in a sitting!
Cheers

Bush" player since 2001. The best tournament in the world! Have been playing golf since 1963 and there is nothing quite like this event. Strong comments stacked up against Ontario Amateur and Canadian Amateur in which both I have had the honour of being a participant.
People, courses, scenery, no comparison! Counting the days until this years event.

2003 will be my 8th year coming over the pond for the "Bush". Originally from Scotland, I've been fortunate enough to play in many tournaments and I must say that the Black Bush is always the highlight of the year. I come back with more stories (some true and some not so true) and memories every year. The fellowship is great!

I play golf out of the Owen Sound, Ontario Canada Golf and Country Club and this will be my 13th consecutive year playing the Black Bush Tournament. I've had the good fortune to bring the Port Stewart cup home to Canada in 1997 and 2000. I look forward every year to seeing all my old friends and the opportunity to meet new friends around the world at a tournament that is extremely well organized and played on some great courses in Northern Ireland.

In 2001, I had the unforgettable pleasure of participating in the Bushmills Classic. My father and I had talked about doing it for years and so when we did manage to go, spending two glorious weeks with my father and participating in this tournament was an experience that will stay with me forever.
Now as I sit here writing this, my father Ivor is over there participating in the tournament and no doubt playing after the effects of the Guinness. To say that I am jealous and envious would be the understatements of the year.
I will be back, correction, we will be back again in the near future.

1 Sandpiper Close, Hordean, Waterlooville, Hants PO8 9EF

England (formerly of Ballingry Fife in Bonnie Scotland)

A great tournament where I met some fantastic people both on the courses and socially in the bars and clubs. My most rediculous remark was whilst playing with Darren (Florida) & Hans (Holland)at Portstewart on the last day. I was playing up the 17th and I hooked my ball into deep rough. Hans shouted across, " Did you get a line on it Harry?", I said "It doesn't matter, if I don't find it, I wont play it." That's as they say Irish and I was over there after all.

I witnessed one Alasdair MacPherson drive the ball 378 yds down the 17th at Castlerock.

Martin McGranaghan (aka MaGoo)

22 Goodwood Close, Cowplain Hants. PO8 8BG

England (Irish by birth)

My abiding memory on Castlerock was being unable to putt on the 18th. because I was laughing so much as my playing partner from Scotland, one Willie McP., having looked on the tee at the advice on par saver then hit his ball to the RHS to dicover what the BBC is. He then tried to go over the dune, got halfway up then had to play a baseball shot at shoulder height, the exorcet missed my head by 6ins. I found his ball he then recovered onto the fairway and finally thinned his approach which hit the clubhouse wall but not hard enough for it to come back onto the green or indeed into the hole. I am sure you can understand my inability to putt!!

Missed 2003 for the first time in 5 years. Needless to say that special blend of Irish alcohol & weather, superb golfing and great friends, makes it the highlight of my golf year. It takes a couple of weeks to recover though, but well worth it. Cheers!

read your web site after listening to a fellow golfer tell me of this wonderfull tournament in Ireland. When telling my wife of my interest in participating in it this year she said it's a great idea as long as she can come and tour the rest of Ireland when completing the tournament. What would you suggest for me to do to organize this into a great holiday for the wife and myself also some of my other golfing friends? I would appreciate any help you could give me. thanks Austin Moore

I participated in the Black Bush tournament for the 5 years 1995-1999. I enjoyed the 4 courses, especially Portstewart, the great company and the the laughs. We were fortunate to play with a great bunch of guys from Hendon and South Herts Golf Courses in London our first year, and we have become great friends.The golf was always challenging and a great deal of fun. I look forward to returning 1 year soon, as I miss the opportunity to play with golfers from so many different countries.

A freind played in your golf tournament in 1990 and I thought it might be a great thing to do.
If possible, please email information mentioning the possibility of my playing. I am 67, former scratch, now 10 handicap and coming down. Amazing what the new technology offers.

Well done lads, what an excellent web site. For many years six of us have played in this wonderful tournament, under the guise of "six Scottish Gentlemen" a severe misnomer no doubt, our star golfer Jim Mitchell being a legend in his own lifetime, who enjoys the social life to such an extent that barely knows where he is at the first tee, totally blitzed, then plays like a dream, (or perhaps in a dream).
On behalf of us all, Jim Mitchell, Jim Young, Bill Johnstone, Bill Hendry and myself (one absentee this year) may we wish the Bannockburn boys, and all our friends and indeed every competitor, a fabulous competition in 2004.

I have great memories from both of my Bushmills Causeway Coast Tournaments (I still call it the "Black Bush") and look forward to participating in it again in the future. Until that time I will have to sustain myself by drinking the Malt!

Another fantastic year, and SUNNY! Bought a new rainproof guaranteed suit which never left the bag. Plenty of money left my pocket though. Thank God the horses came to my rescue again - Motivator. Drink? Once again proved that the golf sway doesn't beat the golf swing!
