Ours was closed last week due to saturated conditions following biblical rain two weeks ago and a daily top-up.
It opened on Friday following overnight minus temperatures. The whole course is like bell iron, fairways, rough, greens, it makes for interesting golf and the odd bounces bring a whole new meaning to the term "rub of the green".
Edit for bunkers which require a special mention, the good news is they don't need raking as you depart them, the bad is the very delicate chipping action required to get out of them. The Pro mentioned yesterday, after our round, that they are GUR for today's comp, which I didn't bother with.
an all time record low of 68 players took part....resulting in an all time record low of 30 points being needed to win a Turkey (top 30 win Turkeys)....8 players scored 30 points but 7 of them missed out on count back!!!! Course must have been frozen solid and bounces must have been very random!!!
Me? I stayed at home suffering from gout.....in the elbow!!!
I hate snow. First sign of snow and our hilly course attracts everyone from miles around, sledgers, ski boards, plastic bags, skiers, inflatable boats and even canoes. The damage is negligible and recoverable, but it would be better if they didn't keep on going beyond the point where the snow has all but gone, and they are down to the grass.
Makes me weep.
