  1. Great insight into the changes at the old course. Fantastic photos and informative blog. Well done keep up the good work.

  2. Those are excellent shots. Will you just take a look at that bunker? I used to have so much trouble getting out of there when I was still a beginner. My aim was so bad that time! I’ve grown much better since then, but when I remember how I did before, it just makes me laugh!
