About Angry Club Golfer

Our club golfer plays more golf than anyone on the planet (stats unconfirmed) – which means there is plenty for him to get wound up about.

As we’re very nice here at National Club Golfer, we thought we would give him a platform on which to get it all off his chest.

You can follow Angry Club Golfer on Twitter. Let him know what makes you angry on the golf course.
