I learned this week that Whittington has apparently hired architect Jonathan Gaunt to advise the club on possible options in the light of HS2.
Nice update of a course I like very much so thank you Sean. There can’t be many courses with more greens where the front edge is higher than the back edge than WHGC. The 10th was a right rascal in this respect.Whilst the hole numbering is a touch confusing I recognise holes.Has any of the new bunkering altered the putting surface contouring at all? I recall quite a few shoulders flowing into the greens from the rear of the bunker mounds.Arb
I stand corrected, thanks Adam and James! Geography is usually one of my strong points but obviously had an off day. I must get back there to see how things are developing...Cheers,James
The last time I played with Jonathan Gaunt at Cavendish he was vociferous in his dislike of the whole concept of internal out of bounds. I was rather surprised to learn therefore, that his brand new design at Whittington Heath incorporates just such a contrived and ugly feature. A subsequent addition by the club, perhaps?
