Sweet jebus, I absolutely had that in "urban myth" category.

Did they make you stand for the national anthem before food arrived....
I played a match recently (this year) and the captain of the home club said grace and toasted the queen. It is probably the first time in my life I have been at a dinner table and witnessed either of those two things…

I've played in club matches where this has happened and you weren't supposed to remove your jacket until the captain removed his !

I did/do wonder why this happened. If it was cost-cutting - not laying liners, or enough topsoil, then I've no sympathy for the club!
The area was massive to cover, like most courses that have run off areas where rain creates channels on paths etc. you could see the waste rock. It was very cheap to play there but there was a reason for that.
Oddly enough I was played the Faldo Course in the Algarve and was paired with the pro at Mansfield and a guy he was on holiday with. He never really sold himself as a pro and his standards were let’s say slack.
