"Good round or a nice walk?"
The 19th beckons, a welcome sight, and soon all will be well no matter how the game went.
OUR UNIQUE VALLEYS
"A magnificant journey through time"
Eight of the holes sweep through majestic high sided valleys formed 2 million years ago.
"Why ask me, I don't know the rules"
The deer will scamper past and stop on the banks to eat, leaving you to play your game.
DAWN'S EARLY LIGHT
"Morning broken by the sound of mowing"
At the first hint of sunrise the greenkeepers make the day's start to manicuring the course.
"Mum says it's not a bad place to be"
Just four hours old, and soon to be skipping across the hills and fairways without a care..
"Green sea of tranquility of the 1st"
Easing into the round with a wide plateau hole before the descent into the Ice Age valleys.
"Practice makes perfect"
Mindful of the fabled, fast greens the chance for a few minutes of unhurried preparation.
"Och aye laddie, get out of that one"
Not an immovable obstruction but better maybe to move the ball and let sleeping snakes lie.
"Bacon Butty Beckons"
The third hardest to traverse but then welcome respite with a well earned drink and snack.
"I told you I was an uptown girl"
Loves the rough and pecking dead wood so not so different from Golfus Hackeris.
"Looks such an easy flick to the green"
Four sandy invites around a postage stamp from a tee set high gives second thoughts.
CASE OF TWO HALVES
"Which one is easiest? No one knows"
Eight holes in the valleys, the others on the top, some days the top wins and some the other.
"They told me the penthouse had a lift"
Winter brings a shortage of rounds so put it to good use and work on your short game savers.
LATE IN THE DAY
"Some say the best time to play"
As twilight draws near and the golf links empty not a bad time to scurry around.
A WINTER'S TALE
"Sorry, only Jack Frost can play today"
When the sound of golf changes to the laughter of children toboganning down the slopes.
