And you thought it was wet this year!

For this weeks blog we thought that we would take you back in time. Below is a picture that was taken of our lovely neighbouring 12th Century church, St. Mary's. We believe it was taken around 1890 and as you can see, things weren't so dry in those days either! The view is taken from the left side of the 17th hole and looks directly across the fairway to the church. This fairway regularly floods during extreme wet weather but we don't think we have seen it this bad. Around 1980 the green was moved in its low position to the existing plateau green that we play to today. When the river does flood it reminds us of the 17th hole at Sawgrass. The only problem is instead of a 132 yard tee shot it turns in to a 355 yard hole with no fairway!

A priest apparently drowned in the river Brent. You can understand how!
