It proved to be second time lucky for us all at Berrington Hall on Sunday, with great weather for this time of year; Once the drizzle had cleared by 10:10 am a wonderful day developed into winter sunshine and a good breeze.
With a good turnout again, 21, we were well looked after by the catering staff, who offered a hearty full English breakfast to start off the day and a wholesome Chip butty at the end of play.
The Course, although shortened, was in far better condition than was expected and I noted how unusual it was to have the highest green as the wettest – I don’t get that at all! Andy, Evan, Simon and I played as a foursome, whilst Andy and Evan got on with their matchplay, Simon and I tried to distract each other in pursuit of the victory, but the day proved a good one for me as I had Bagger Vance on my shoulder showing me lines of the putts, and I was able to walk in with 10 single putts. Overall, we finished with an average score of 31, which is considered on the high side.
Berrington Hall is a course in transition, with a lot of hard work and planning ahead of themselves. It shows great promise and good value and I for one would very much like to return.
