2014

This year was a change from our usual foray to Normandy of Brittany.  We stayed at home for a golf staycation..

St Mellion in Cornwall was our destination. The accommodation was excellent although some of the group had larger rooms than others apparently !!

The 2 courses were challenging : The Kernow was difficult but the Nicklaus was at another level – extremely difficult which can be seen from most of the scores.

The winner of countback was Phil.

The outstanding round of the trip was by Chris with a truly magnificent 44 points on the Kernow course. This included an amazing Albatross on the first hole on the first day which = 6 points !! Unfortunately for him this meant a cut to 10 which effectively scuppered his chances for the tournament.
The round by James on the Nicklaus Signature – a much more difficult layout – was exceptional as he scored 33 points – and he called me lucky !!
