From issue 34 of Golf Course Architecture, published in October 2013.
Sandy, as long-time Gopher Watch readers will be aware, does like a nice links course. And, although it’s unlike most links in being a fair way from the sea and surrounded by housing, there aren’t too many better than 2012 Open Championship venue Royal Lytham and St Annes, where, as Jerry Dixon of Wilmslow in Cheshire, England, correctly identified, he was to be found in the last issue. Actually, Jerry, a relative local, was far from being the only reader to spot the Lytham course – we had one of our highest ever correct entries.
Lytham placed at number 70 in our Architects’ Choice rankings, a position that was bettered by the course that Sandy visited for the photograph in this issue. Let us know where he is for a chance to win a Golf Course Architecture golf shirt. As usual, you can enter our prize draw by emailing the name of the course to firstname.lastname@example.org.
