Andy Hone - Golf Mad Dad

Chesterfield-based Andy Hone, a talented and self-taught golfer has announced the launch of his new YouTube Channel ‘Golf Mad Dad’.

From an early age, Andy has been sports-obsessed, playing football, cricket and golf at a high level in the local area. However, Golf has always been his No.1 sports passion, alongside being a devoted Father to his young son, hence the concept of ‘Golf Mad Dad’ was born.

With a mission to inspire, entertain and educate golf enthusiasts of all levels, Andy aims to show that golf is now becoming much more inclusive, as well as being a fun sport and an excellent form of exercise, in terms of both fitness and mental health, which the post-pandemic golf boom demonstrated.

Currently based at Shirland Golf & Country Club, Andy aims to highlight what the local area has to offer in terms of golf. His YouTube Channel will feature Course Vlogs at various local clubs across the region, fun Golf Challenges with local Sport Stars, insightful reviews, as well Andy documenting his goal of becoming a long drive golf professional.


When asked about his motivation behind launching the YouTube channel, Andy Hone, Founder of Golf Mad Dad said: “Manchester has Rick Shiels, Peter Finch and many more successful Golf YouTubers and I want to grow a brand and online community that showcases and is synonymous with Chesterfield and the surrounding areas of the East Midlands and South Yorkshire. We are very fortunate to live in an area that is a hotbed for Golf and is in close proximity to the Peak District, which I really want to showcase.”
