Course Record - Ed Fairbrother 


So just how does someone tee it up one day (hoping for a good score but probably not expecting a truly great score) describe their round on the day they smashed the course record by three whole shots?!

Ed's no longer eligible to compete in  the Junior Championship of course,  we're pleased to say he's one of our rising stars as a very active member


challenging for a regular Scratch Squad place.

We asked Ed to recall the day he set a target that will be equalled by very few and in truth, may never be beaten....

" I got off to a good start holing about a 20 foot putt for birdie on the first. A couple of pars on the second and third. I holed a 15 foot putt for birdie on the fourth. Birdies on both the pars 5's the 6th and 8th. I hit my approach shots close on the 10th and 11th to make birdie. Another birdie on the 13th. Then pared in from there. I remember hitting my tee shot right on the 16th and just having to chip out about 100 yards shot of the green then getting up and down to keep a bogey off my card."

So that's how it's done....

As we all say from time to time - "it's an easy game".
