Cavendish Seniors hosted Vale Royal Seniors earlier today. Despite very wet conditions the greens were in superb condition, but MacKenzie’s designs proved very challenging for some of the visitors!
The Vale Royal Seniors were very complimentary about the quality of the course and expressed a genuine affection for what was referred to as a ‘proper golf course’.
Dave Firth (11 h/c and shown right in the photo) has been a Vale Royal member for 10 years and this was only the second time he had played Cavendish. Dave thought the course was just superb and said he thought it was so good it was ‘one of those courses you must play before going to heaven!’
The photo also shows Dave’s playing partner Wilf Yarwood (left) who has been a member of Vale Royal for 15 years since the club was opened; but who is the mystery Cavendish Senior hiding behind one of the new flags on the 18th?
Thank you to Vale Royal for visiting and for Dave’s great comments!
