The Wanderer started it all. Our first golf trip in 2010 set the template, or at least got us thinking about a Gents Tour and some Majors when Felix joined us a year later.
The first Wanderererer was played over 63 holes, stroke, with no throwaways. On handicap of course, as all GWT golf is. Subsequent versions count roughly the best half of your total rounds played.
Here’s where the Wanderer has taken us so far – geographically, mentally, emotionally and golferly.
A one day Stableford event, the Bash’n’Dash, is the easiest format of our four Majors. Despite that, it is actually one of the hardest Majors to win, because it attracts the biggest fields. There have been some classic moments over the years.
King Island magic
The King Island trip had been on the agenda for years, but tight budgets and new babies brought a series of postponements. Finally, at the end of April 2019, we got there for a cracking Wandererererer! (the first Wanderer since December 2016).
We were all ready to be blown away – by the golf courses, the stellar play and possibly, the roaring 40’s.
After Rory tanked at Augusta, there are now only
four three two players on Tour with a chance to complete their career Slam in 2019. Spiethy, Phil , Felix and Leroy.
The coveted Lost Bougle; Bash’n’Dash; Matchplay Masters & Wandererer trophies.

Quite likes a bunker does Cravo
Cravo is one of the original members of the GWT, our Tour Secretary and Gent’s Mental Health Ambassador. His real name is Leigh, but so is Leroy’s (hence Cravo goes by his surname/nickname).
Cravo has helped drive the positive ethos of the Tour, yet also provided some classic giggle moments with mega-tantrums and controversies. Sadly for those who like a chuckle and some drama, he’s taken his temperament to a new zen level most of the time, inspired by Leroy.
The Beaver is our Tiger.
A founding member of the GWT, our best player and the man with the greatest career on Tour. Indomitable. Uncompromising. Friendly! Super fit! Consistently awesome.
