Akureyri Golf Club in the north of the country has some of the trickiest greens to read in the world. You have to make allowances for sudden shifts in the earth’s surface because of the volcanic activity happening under your spikes. You must also be prepared to see your ball disappearing forever down a 60 million-year-old fissure. You are also advised to make sure you check your ball is your ball before playing it. It might be a piece of lava and therefore hazardous to your card, clubs and wrists.

We caught up with the champion polo player to discuss the highs and lows of playing polo professionally and the impact it has on family life, as well as getting Nic’s best tips for polo amateurs. Growing up on a farm with horses is what inspired Nic Roldan to get into polo, and claims that his father being a polo player isn’t the main reason he got into the sport, he always had an interest in the speed and intensity of the game along with his love for horses. Being a professional sportsman can be stressful for anyone, but ‘polo has more highs than lows’ as Nic gets to play the sport he loves and is around horses constantly, all whilst travelling the world and visiting beautiful countries. According to Nic, the lows are ‘the same as any sport, it’s a very cut throat, competitive and intense sport.’ The sport also requires a huge amount of investment in the horses which can be incredibly stressful and unlike most other sports. However ‘it is tough to say there are any other lows when you get to do what you love to do as a career, what could be better?’
In recent years, the world’s oldest and most prestigious global sailing event, America’s Cup, is as much of a technology race as it is a sailboat race. New film, “Surface to Air” looks beyond the luxurious sport and into the innovation required to build one of the fastest sailboats to ever exist. The film shows how the Altair and Artemis Racing’s technical teams have placed a great deal of emphasis on perfecting the use of the daggerboards – foils that lift the boat out of the water to break the drag barrier. Viewers are able to see how this technology has a significant impact on a boat’s performance. “Technology plays a huge part in the America’s Cup,” said Iain Percy, Team Manager and On-Water Tactician for Artemis Racing. “It’s been said the fastest boat has won the America’s Cup for the last 160 years and I’m not sure that is about to change. The daggerboard is the appendage that we fly the boat off and also transfers side force into driving force. Millimetres of difference make knots of difference so the optimal manufacturing and design of the daggerboard is absolutely critical.” The teams have focused much of their effort on optimising the strength, shapes and thicknesses, and how water and wind interact with daggerboards using a simulation-driven design approach.

The Sybarites has the low-down on how and why the Chinese are going golf crazy. China may be famous for blockbuster sights such as the Summer Palace, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Tiananmen Square and Terracotta warriors but it’s fast becoming known for its interest in golf too. Chairman Mao might have banned golf for its bourgeois decadence back in the day, but fast forward to 2017 and it’s all change. Golf is no longer considered a crime in China and consequently the country has seen its golfing enthusiasts swell from around 50,000 only a few years ago, to more than three million today. The rise of the sport in China can partly be attributed to the International Olympic Committee’s decision to reinstate golf for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games - a sporting event that China is famously keen on.After the Sydney 2000 Olympics, China’s sporting big wigs launched Project 119 – a campaign focused on training athletes in individual sports (such as kayaking and canoeing), in which the Chinese have traditionally underperformed.
