Type of course? Trees and ditches

Pleasant staff? Lovely – we particularly appreciated them bringing us bottles of cold water while we were playing

Best hole? None stood out

Après golf? Great ploughman in the lovely shady outside area. I really like the whole ambiance of the club: very welcoming, unpretentious and down to earth.

Nice round? Trees and ditches and deafening planes every 20 seconds overhead – no

Special memory? The only thing I did well was to use my 7 iron from 50/60 yards to get the ball on the green with a little bump and run shot. I’ve never been comfortable with that shot, but the lies were so tight that I didn’t want to hit a wedge. Anyway, it worked and that was about the only good thing about the round.

Must play again? No
