Just in

God’s own country

Gerald Ingolby surprises himself

Two rounds of golf in two days – if you’d asked me a week ago whether I could manage even one without a buggy, I’d have laughed at you.

Yesterday she was showing herself in all her glory – the sky a patchwork of dark, forbidding areas hinting of torrential rain and snow-white fluffed-up clouds and bright sunshine, the landscape as beautiful as I have ever seen it.

A truly great place to be …. let alone playing golf.

[Too bad that the M23 – both carriageways – south of the M25 intersection was a disaster area – a mash-up of road works and gridlocked traffic].
