Thanks Jason.

All, I added some pix to the tour taken during the Seniors Legends event back in August. There was a mixed bag of weather with it being filthy on the final day. The greens and fairways looked playable to me, but the last day was cancelled due to safety reasons.

A few pix of the event. Ernie on 10, playing the same tees we did! It was a disastrous back nine which cost him the tournament given the final day would be cancelled. Despite the poor play, Ernie seemed fine yucking it up with VJ the next day.

Ally

4-6, 9-11, 14 & 17. Wonderful set of 3s. Unusually for me, I like the set of 5s.

Agreed on the 3ís, the 5th being my favourite of a really strong bunch with the 9th just picture perfect.


The 5ís have loads going on which is great to see: Despite 13 being entirely manufactured with a significant water feature, it may well be my favourite, closely followed by 10.

I don't have a good sense of the 13th as we played a tee making the hole straight. Given the blind tee shot, can the water be reached from the normal tee?

Possibly...if you are a bomber and are playing off the forward tees.


From the furthest forward possible tee off position to the closest point of the lake is 233 yards, but it is appreciably uphill and on that line you would have to go over the two oak trees that split the fairway.


If you bomb one down the left fairway from the yellows, the run out is about 280. Off the white tee 315 and back tee 340.





2023: Aberdovey, Liphook, Mill Ride (x9), Hillside, Lytham, Delamere Forest, Formby, Birkdale, Carya, Maxx Royal, Cleeve Hill, Sunny (Old & New), West Byfleet, Hoylake, East Berks, RSG, West Sussex, Hollinwell (x2), Alwoodley, JCB (x2), Beau Desert, Painswick (x2), Stranahan, Belfry (Brab & PGA)

Thanks Doc. Maybe the Legends were playing a forwardish tee because this tee shot seemed problematic for them. I did note on some holes they were nowhere near the back tees.

It looks as though JCB will be hosting LIV next season in place of the Centurion course. I wonder if Brooks and Bryson will be playing from the forward tees ?

I'd caught a whiff of this a couple of months ago.


Guess i'll have to figure out how to watch LIV now. Haven't watched a single minute so far.

Won't you be on the first tee beside the announcer letting off the fireworks or whatever they get up to at a LIV event ?

Thought LIV Golf is now part of PGA Tour and Saudi's merger  ::)
