Couple of trips....
« on: Jun 08, 2017, 12:54:29 »
 Got a couple of business trips down south in the next 2-3 weeks and have made arrangements such that I'm playing golf at Crowborough, where I've played a good few times before and then in early July, a game at Copthorne G.C. is planned.  Any insights on the latter ?

I played copthorne many many years ago and remember it as a pleasant wander around heathland with some big trees thrown in. Sorry I can't be more specific but I was 18/19 at the time.

Crowborough was a great day out when I played it. Host looked after us and I was sick as a dog from sun stroke all the way home.

I played Copthorne about 30 years ago and all very pleasant.

We had travelled down to play Tilgate Forest as it had just opened and we knew the pro. My mate refused to play when he heard the pro telling the guy in front of us not to take a bag in the rough as they had a major snake problem back then and someone had been bitten on the face by a snake that had crawled into a bag and then appeared half way down the next fairway when he was pulling a club for his second shot!

My mate couldn't get away quick enough..............and we found Copthorne  :D
