I was browsing a few sites looking into the history of golf and found this, it did make me chuckle.

Richmond Golf Club Temporary Rules – 1941

  1. Players are asked to collect bomb and shrapnel splinters to save these causing damage to the mowing machines.
  2. In competitions, during gunfire or while bombs are falling, players may take shelter without penalty for ceasing play.
  3. The position of known delayed action bombs are marked by red flags at a reasonable, but not guaranteed, safe distance therefrom.
  4. Shrapnel and/or bomb splinters on the fairways or in bunkers, within a club’s length of a ball, may be moved without penalty, and no penalty shall be incurred if a ball is thereby caused to move accidentally.
  5. A ball moved by enemy action may be replaced or, if lost or destroyed, a ball may be dropped not nearer the hole without penalty.
  6. A ball lying in a crater may be lifted and dropped not nearer the hole, preserving the line to the hole, without penalty.
  7. A player whose stroke is affected by the simultaneous explosion of a bomb may play another ball. Penalty one stroke.

You may not be able to get a round at Augusta National in Georgia but you can play the 12th & 16th Augusta ‘Tribute’ holes at Northwick Park in Harrow, Middlesex.

The Majors course at Northwick Park was voted the UK’s top 9-hole course in 2009, it’s superb greens and accurately crafted replications of the key holes at Major Championship venues like Royal Troon, The Belfry, Royal Birkdale and of course Augusta make the layout a great challenge at a very affordable price.

This weekend I am off on a company golf trip to Puerto Banus. We are playing Los Naranjos and Santa Clara which I am hoping will be a great experience for me as I have never played golf in Spain before.

Los Naranjos was designed by Robert Trent Jones Senior and is widely regarded to be one of Spain’s best courses. At over 7,000 yards it certainly looks to be a genuine championship course which will prove a tough challenge for me as I am suffering with my driving at present. The wide fairways and huge undulating greens may help my regulation statistics but there is also massive expanses of sand and a good many water hazards to avoid. (more…)
