Sandy’s investigation of a very new hole certainly confused readers of the last issue, as we didn’t get a large number of answers. Surprising really, as we know that a lot of golfers play at Prince’s in Sandwich, next door to Royal St George’s, every year, and the course’s new-look Himalayas nine, reopened last year after ‘reimagining’ by Martin Ebert, including this new par three hole at the water’s edge called Bloody Point, has had a lot of ink.
Be that as it may, it was a long-time friend of GCA, Richard Penley-Martin, formerly secretary at Ganton and now at Denton GC, just north-west of London, whose answer was first out and who wins the shirt.
For this issue Sandy can be spotted on the opening tee of another course with a very famous neighbour. Answers, as usual, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
