From issue 35 of Golf Course Architecture, published in January 2014.
The presence of Harlech Castle in the background of the January Gopher Watch puzzle made it a relatively easy one, and thus ensured a bumper entry, though one contestant took a slightly too literal tack and concluded Sandy must have been on the Castle course at St Andrews, rather than at Royal St Davids in Wales. First out of the hat was Sam Hughes of IMG Golf Advisory Services in London; we hope Sam will help us out with our marketing by wearing his new GCA golf shirt at IMG’s forthcoming Golf Business Forum event in Abu Dhabi.
A glorious sunny day for Sandy’s photoshoot this time, on one of the world’s grandest links courses. We don’t think much help will be required, but if you do need a clue, consider this: the course in question is set to be higher profile this year than ever before!
