The Aerial View

A flyover created one June morning in 2018 by our man from the BBC, Mike Metcalfe.  In five minutes of video, he has captured everything we love about our course in the hills:

This replaces the individual course flyovers for each hole as the previous supplier had been pointing our course at the wrong location for over 12 months. In time, a complete set of hole-by-hole videos will be produced but in the meantime, this is more than adequate – well done Mike and many thanks from all of us.

Golf in the Wild Seniors Open Results

A great day for the Golf in the Wild Seniors Open yesterday with 51 entries – 48 recorded, 2 non-competition handicap ‘for fun’ entries (Rob Forster 41 points & Colin Chapman 24 points) & one untraced on CDH – Bob Allport – 31 points).  Many thanks to all those who attended especially those who travelled significant distances to be there.

Most of all, congratulations to the four prize winners (for full results click here):

In addition, Malcolm Aitchison wins the lowest gross prize calculated by deducting the player’s handicap from the total points scored – in this instance 38 minus 9 = 29 – 4 points clear of the field.

We look forward to seeing everyone back again next year – Wednesday 12th June 2019 – put it in your diary now!
