Could the Ryder Cup be heading to BOLTON???!!!
« on: October 29, 2016, 05:13:01 AM »

Not content with simply announcing that local property empire Peel Holdings (formerly The Manchester Ship Canal Company) plans a new golf course, this over-enthusiastic local hack ties it in with a potential bid for the Ryder Cup!   :D

My guess is that Peel bought the estate for a relative song, and have spent the last five years scratching their heads over what the heck to do with it.


"I know!  A golf course!!"

Duncan,


how totally preposterous to suggest that the Ryder Cup would ever be held at a new, no name UK course that is close to some really top class clubs ;)  It will never happen[size=78%] [/size] ::)

Luckily, the "company has so far refused to make any public comment  on the matter" or else we wouldn't have any details at all...

Since we're speculating, I predict this course will be a "10"

Id completely forgotten Id ever started this thread!


I never took this project seriously and assumed it had fallen by the wayside but a good authority told me earlier this year that it was definitely a goer.


This would seem to confirm that!
