Here are the details from the President about our annual weekend away
Chaps – The 2016 WHVGS AA and WHV Open has been finalised, October 7th – 9th. In 2014 we played two historical two Open Courses.
In 2015 we played a mighty trilogy in North Wales, which was excellent… So where to in 2016…?
I tried to set up a weekend in Southport or Liverpool to take in another Open course, but failed – weekend golf is tricky in those parts… I looked at a weekend in Belfast, but they are currently digging up both the Portrush Courses for the Open in 2019… So now is not the right time to go… I was getting quite despondent, but… Now, I am happy.
The courses are top drawer and the cost is palatable… This year we are heading south, but not a plane. We will take on the highest ranked course that the WHVGS Tour has ever been to, the highest ranked three course combination we have ever played – including the oldest English course…
Friday 7th Oct : The Amy Austin – The West Course Saunton Golf Club (65th Best course in England)
Saturday 8th October : CJ Round 1 – The East Course Saunton Golf Club (12th Best course in England and the 33rd Best Course in the British Isles – 5 places higher than Royal Cinque Ports and has hosted The Amateur Championship on numerous occasions)
Sunday 9th October : CJ round 2 – Royal North Devon Golf Club / Westward Ho! (The oldest Course in England, the 55th Best Course in England and has hosted The Amateur Championship on three occasions)
The cost is £334 for three truly excellent courses and B&B.
