IAN....You're putting the frighteners on me for next year visit!
Where have all these bunkers came from?....Sure they weren't there 10/15 years ago-last time graced the hallowed turf (well maybe 'graced' is maybe the wrong term:rolleyes:)

Only 1 new bunker over recent years on the par 5 5th about 150 yards short of the green designed to catch the 2nd shot off the very back tees.

Greenstaff working on the bunkers on the 2nd today.

I reckon the one I was in will be be re-done over the winter. Fortunately it is not as deep as the one on the other side of the green and I managed to get it up and down.

Measure of today's poor ball striking that meant I ended up it it despite having plenty of club in my hand to carry it comfortably....

IAN-When you say 're-done' do you mean filled in??:LOL:
No danger of me reaching the new one on the 5th in 3/4-and that's from the VERY front tees(y)

A mean and murky looking Silloth today and blowing a hooly for safe measure 🌧🌪 All good practice 😳

Nice pics.

1st is one of my favourite holes, any wind and its as tough as old boots. Game has got to be on from the the 1st shot, you just can't wander up cold thinking you can ease yourself into the round.

Had 115 yards to the flag playing the 9th on Thursday, just a nice 6 iron in a brisk Silloth wind :ROFLMAO:
