Tee Tours Event at WHGC

by DougPinnington

on Thu February 15, 2018

We welcomed TeeTours on Thursday 15th February to run one of the many events they run in the Midlands. It is understood that a good day was had by all those who attended, as indicated by the following comments made by the organiser on their website:-

On Monday I called at the Proshop to collect the cards. Following Sunday night’s snow, the course was white over. On Tuesday and Wednesday, incessant rain forced the club to take a most unusual decision and put the whole course on temporary greens - very rare.
Fortunately Wednesday night was dry and that was enough to ensure we were on all 18 full greens on Thursday and, although a brisk eighteen to twenty m.p.h. wind depressed temperatures, the sun shone all day.
Not a puddle was to be found and for those who were visiting Whittington for the first time it was truly a revelation; their trolleys were cleaner after playing than before! Such is the quality of this natural heathland and, in my humble opinion, whichever numpty decided to drive the HS2 line through the middle of it wants shafting.

......................

The good news is that we are already booked in again for next year..........

Evidence of the high regard that our visitors have of our course.
