Meet Jorg Paulus from Germany

Jorg Paulus has traveled the globe to play some of the best golf courses in the world. He won the International Portuguese Mid-Amateur at Troia Resort where he met one of the founders of All Square. A couple of weeks later, we interviewed Jorg while he was taking a cab to get to the next airport.

How did you get into golf?

I started playing golf in 1987. I wasn’t very good at tennis or football and I wanted to be good at one sport. It seems that golf was a better bet. I played golf for the first time in Golf Club Erlangen near Nürnberg in Germany.

You are a member at many golf clubs, can you tell us which club is your favorite?

I am lucky to be a member at several golf clubs: Royal Dornoch Golf Club, Golspie Golf Club, Durness Golf Club, Brora Golf Club in Scotland and Royal Liverpool (Hoylake) in England.

Among those courses, my favorite is Royal Dornoch Golf Club as I shot a 68 during a tournament round the first time I played there. It felt great!

Can you tell us about your most memorable golf experience?

Brokenhurst Manor Golf Club

My most memorable golf experience is the 6 iron that I hit on the 17th green at Brokenhurst Manor Golf Club to win the local trophy. I stood on the fairway knowing that I had a chance to win the tournament but that I had to make a birdie. I managed to hit my 6 iron to one meter and holed the putt to win!

I love to play golf in Scotland.

What are your favorite golf courses in Europe, in the UK, in the US and in Asia?
