The welcome we got on the first tee from the starter put us all at ease. The first is a relatively easy hole with an open fairway to forgive a wayward shot

THE BRABAZON @ THE BELFRY

THE BRABAZON @ THE BELFRY

Back in May 2014 yours truly Lefty, Newby and Spence were invited to the relaunch of The Belfry and when I say relaunch I mean 22 million pounds of investment to turn this once tired hotel and course back to the prestigious place it used to be, in fact the paint on the walls was still drying and the smell of fresh carpets filled the air.

BREADSALL PRIORY - MOORLANDS

BREADSALL PRIORY - MOORLANDS

The Moorland course at Breadsall Priory was designed by architect Donald Steele back in 1991 and is viewed by many as the Priory’s little brother course. However, to the members this has always been the course of choice. Why so? Well, there’s no doubt that visually the Priory is an outstanding golf course and a photographers dream, with its big green rolling fairways, huge undulations, beautiful water features and mature trees, it really does look spectacular.

CAVENDISH - BUXTON

If I Met Da Alister Mackenzie, which is unlikely, since he sadly died in 1934, I would buy him a pint of beer and tell him that I played golf like him! MacKenzie was self-described as a “good putter, but a mediocre ball striker”, the latter bit I know my golfing partners will argue with because on a bad day I can be rubbish. On the greens however I’m happy just like MacKenzie.

“SHERWOOD FOREST”

“SHERWOOD FOREST”

You’ll notice something about all promotional images of golf courses, they all contain three key elements; 1. A beautiful green golf course, 2. A bright blue sky, 3. Blazing sunshine. There’s a reason for that, and it’s because golf is a game to be played in the sunshine...
