Our clue to Sandy’s whereabouts in the last Gopher Watch was perhaps a little generous, as certainly lots of readers seemed well able to identify Royal Birkdale’s home hole, even without the famous clubhouse in view. The winner was, remarkably, a golfer even better travelled than Sandy himself. Bob McCoy, from his website and his regular updates, appears to spend most of his life visiting exciting golf courses around the world, and there is hardly a significant venue he hasn’t played. So we’re pleased to think that a GCA shirt will be travelling the world with Bob in future.
After a run of links, Sandy finds himself on a rather different type of course this month. No clues, beyond saying that the place has hosted a large number of Major championships, and was, arguably, among the last works of golf design’s Golden Age. Answers to: email@example.com.
