Where else can one find such pleasurable excitement for a mere 12 quidI am contemplating putting a trip together featuring a six open rota course for a riduculously low buy in and waiting for the reaction.PricelessGreat wrap Sean; I am glad our musings turned out so well
"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

Lovely jubbly.
IIRC, there was a GCA outing to MO maybe ten years ago. The FBD memory fails me as I canít remember who was all there and I seem to have no photos to assist.
If you were one of the participants, firstly I apologise and secondly can you put your hand up and remind me. Maybe DMac? Maybe Carlton?
Help!

There was this one in 2007!  I played golf with Andrew Mitchell this week after a decade gap, and that game with Alfie Ward and everyone playing Hickories was recalled.

Thanks for the memories, Sean. 
I was kicked off it in 2006 by overstaying my welcome, accompanied by cheers and boos for the stewards from the crowd gathering for the evening race meet.  And when Tee Bags and I pitched up after our game at Gullane in 2021 we were turned away for the same reason.  I hope both 'courses' prosper and the Council keeps them going. Can't wait to get back.


Let's make GCA grate again!

There's a book in the works about the Parks, I just hope it does them justice.


Approach to the two-tier 6th green.


I've always thought this green was the 'template' for the 7th at Worpledon where Willie is credited with the greens and bunkering by the Club.

Sadly the pictures from that thread aren't coming through.  I see we were joined by cinematic and cricketing royalty.
In June I will be riding the first three stages of this year's Tour de France route for charity.  630km (394 miles) in three days, with 7800m (25,600 feet) of climbing for the William Wates Memorial Trust (https://rideleloop.org/the-charity/) which supports underprivileged young people.

I have a very hazy recollection. Was it that time we had the Clan GCA gathering at Gullane ? Not sure when that was but I recall an evening spent in the Old Clubhouse overlooking the kids course at Gullane.

Donít know if it attained full on Clan GCA status but I remember some of us played MO the weekend of the 2016 Ryder Cup. NB and maybe Kilspindie or G3 too??

Whitty had the sound idea of a game of golf followed by an evening at the track. Sounds splendid to me.

Wardo, my ticket says £11.60. Looking at the website, senior ticket is £10.50. I think we were rolled!

We had an outing in Lexington, KY a few years back. Golf in the AM, followed by an early evening at Keenland Racetrack. It was a glorious day!!! 👍👍

I am fairly certain Worpyís 8th was fashioned after Pandy. Abercrombie built a crude two tier green. I think Roger Wethered improved the green to the masterpiece that is now in play.
