Just when I get tired of some idiotic tirades with little to nothing to do with golf, and I begin to wonder I bother to visit this site, once again Sean you come through with another great hidden gem and some fantistic photos.Thank you for once again making this site worth the time to visit.
Its gets very frustrating not to be able to read greens.
Jon - pix of the snake bunker have been posted before - maybe you are thinking of the one and same bunker! I certainly think Simpson had something to do with ...(edit)...and probably the greens.

I certainly think Simpson had something to do with ...(edit)...and probably the greens. I think you answered your own conundrum. Mainly on the evidence of Walton Heath I think Simpson was the man who did the more devilish and interesting greens.Very cool report Sean although Iím still not really sure why you donít absolutely love the place? Until now this course had passed under my radar, but now I will seek it out, looks fascinating. Jon thereís also been pictures of a similar(ish) bunker at Sutton Coldfied which canít be that far away.
Sean,Cheers for the tour, Blackwell looks a delight! Great pics of the Simpson sketches and the setting of the clubhouse looks great. I'll certainly be utilising the reciprocal we have there this year I hope?Do you know any more of the origin of the really long bunker on the 12th? was it an old dry ditch, or track or something?Cheers,James
Sean,I just checked out Google Earth's 1945 pics and there is something there where that long bunker is. I guess its probably a buner back then but its not the clearest picture so it could be a track or a ditch? Certainly looks to make the hole narrow. But the bunker itself is pretty narrow along its length also.Cheers,James
