Beccles. As things once were!
« on: July 15, 2024, 05:16:36 AM »
This piece from Smithy is well worth viewing.
Beccles! How golf once was, and obviously still is in Beccles, which is in Eastern England.
Could easily be the place where the terms ‘fair-way’ and ‘rough’ were invented.

When next in Suffolk the dog will insist I take her there.
Pencil bag, 7 Clubs and only  £10 all day in 2024!

Great find, thanks David. 
Let's make GCA grate again!

And you must try nearby Bungay and Waveney. Think I paid £20 for 36 holes pre-COVID, plus a huge trencher of sausage and mash for lunch, and it was super. Proper golf, in every sense, and the sort of place and local club that David would like

B&W sounds cool. I think there’s a recent Smithy video of it too.
There’s also not too far away Diss. On common land too.
Probably others as well.

Now that looks fun
"Golf is happiness. It's intoxication w/o the hangover; stimulation w/o the pills. It's price is high yet its rewards are richer. Some say its a boys pastime but it builds men. It cleanses the mind/rejuvenates the body. It is these things and many more for those of us who truly love it." M.Norman
