Aldeburgh OAGS Mini-Tour 2018
20 August 2018
Thanks to Nick Holt’s efficient organisation, not to mention his local influence as a member of Aldeburgh Golf Club, 9 OA golfers met on a glorious sunny Tuesday at noon. After a light(ish) lunch, two foursomes matches set off to face the challenge of the linksy Aldeburgh course with its rather unfriendly gorse but with lovely views of the Alde river estuary.
We all met up in the evening at the Wentworth Hotel where we dined well and set about severely depleting their stock of Chablis before retiring to a comfortable B&B owned by another Aldeburgh member.
Wednesday morning was cooler with a fresh sea breeze – welcomed by some but not by those with a slice, controlled or otherwise – and two more foursome matches set off. To nobody’s astonishment, there were winners and losers (see below) but Paul Yule and Neil Melvill were the only players to win on both days so many congratulations to them.
We finished our Mini-Tour with a two-course lunch in the beautifully refurbished clubhouse. This gave us the strength to face the journey home to various parts of the country such as Worcestershire, Norfolk and London or around the M25 to Hertfordshire, Middlesex, Surrey and Sussex. Everyone agreed that it had been a first class Tour.
Thanks to Nick and Hanc Aldenham!
