Saunton Sands

What a great day! Graham Laing (NW Golf Club Pro) and me had our Lombard Trophy game at Saunton Sands Golf Club. Regular readers will remember that I managed to win a medal event at NW and part of the prize was today’s event.

I have never played a links golf course and have to admit I was a little wary, particularly after being told that the best way to practise putting for Saunton was try it on a laminate wooden floor! I needn’t have worried, the course was superb, in fact probably the best one I have ever played, I now understand why people love links golf.

Anyhow I suppose I’d better disclose the result….

As far as I know (late Thursday night) the winners came in 6 under par, unfortunately that wasn’t us, we managed a creditable 2 under and our playing partners, the team from Filton, managed level par. The best bit though, was the fact that I came in on 6 holes and really feel like I played my part.

Many thanks to the people at Lombard and RBS for organising such a great day and the members and staff at Saunton Sands Golf Club for making us all feel so very welcome.
