Episode 13: Following Fairways and Flying Flags with Nick Edmund of Global Golf 4 Cancer

Nick Edmund is the founder of Global Golf 4 Cancer, a genuinely global campaign with a mission to inspire the golfing community to ‘fly the flag’ and support cancer fighters worldwide.

The goal is to fly the Global Golf 4 Cancer flag on the 4th hole of 400 high profile courses around the world. Since launching the campaign with a 2000km jaunt along the Wild Atlantic Way in 2017, Edmund has continued his walks and awareness raising visits through Scotland, Northern Ireland, a Camino de Santiago with a difference and other trips to the USA, Continental Europe, Australia and the Middle East.

Nick's professional career path began in criminal law, however, more experienced listeners will remember Nick's series of annual publications entitled Following the Fairways, which were essay focussed publications featuring many of the best courses from Great Britain & Ireland.

Edmund also served as Managing Director of Faldo Design for 15 years from 1997, we discuss Nick's input level and design philosophy, some of the projects that he's most proud of, this is tempered with one or two that got away and that age old question 'what's Nick Faldo really like?'.

A four time cancer survivor, Nick is an inspirational character with an indefatigueable spirit who we could all learn something from, we hope you enjoy the conversation.
