From the footballers you know - who is the best golfer? I would have to say Gianfranco Zola (handicap 4) and Ruud Gullit (handicap 5) We understand you have been playing a bit of golf on the Island of Phuket in Thailand? Yes. I was there last May for a week with some friends and we played some beautiful courses. I‘m planning to repeat the trip this year. Where do you stay in Phuket - Do you have any favourite courses there? I always stay at the Serenity Golf Hotel - a very peaceful place located only 5 minutes from some of the best courses on the Island. My favourite course is the Red Mountain Golf Course.

The Addington Golf Club (near Croyden, London), The Warwickshire Golf Club, The Wentworth Club (Surrey) and The Wisley Golf Club (Surrey). Which are the best courses you have played in the world? Red
