Type of course? Undulating parkland.
Pleasant staff? Wonderful. The young man at the quiche station gave me extra and the young woman at the dessert station gave me cake AND pavlova because I couldn’t decide.
Best hole? The 14th, because the tee is next to Betchworth Castle (see below). It is said the ruin and its grounds (the golf course) are haunted by a black dog. We did see a spaniel, but it wasn’t very scary.
Après golf? It was the Silver Open, so my teammates and I were treated to a two-course lunch and it was delicious.
Nice round? Fantastic. Beautiful, challenging course with inextricable bunkers and very difficult greens. Gorgeous views over the Surrey hills.
Special memory? When the Lady Captain came over looking for us with our card and my heart sank because I was convinced we’d filled it wrong and were disqualified.
Must play again? We’ll have to as we need to defend our title next year!
