Itís good to see what OL and LO look like.I played North Wales in the British Universities Championship in (I think) 1991. It was 36 holes strokeplay at NW and Maesdu and then the top 64 progress to match play at Maesdu. As we played the 14th at NW the heavens opened and by the time we got to the 16th (OL) tee the green was even more ďsunkenĒ than normal - already under an inch of water. We retreated to the clubhouse to wait for it to clear but it didnít. The round was cancelled and I havenít been back since. So, until now, I have never actually seen the two holes for which the course is most well known. Looks like I should find my way back there at some point.As an aside, that week was an eye-opener for me in terms of the difference between Oxbridge and most other UK universities, including mine, Lancaster. I made it to the quarter finals and played a guy from Cambridge. He was worried if he got through to the final he might struggle to make the flight for their teamís summer tour of some of the top courses of the East coast of the US. I was worried that if I got through to the semi-final the next morning I (genuinely) only had enough money left to either pay for another night at the local campsite where I was staying in a tent or to have something to eat that evening other than the quarter of my Mumís fruit cake that I had left. He beat me on the 18th, so the choice was made for me!
Sean,Thanks for another good tour. Added to the ever-growing list, if only to see the run of 14-17. Am I the only person that doesn't know what O.L. and L.O. means? I realize it's what holes 15 & 16 are called, but why?
