Finch Golf Tour – Weekly Blog – Issue #2
The “Beast from the East” brought sub zero temperatures last week as the UK golfing community was brought to a halt as 99% of courses throughout the UK where closed as Snow and wind chill temperatures plummeted below -10.
We still had our avid golfers calling on Wednesday & Thursday to check golf at West Lancashire Golf Club was still on last week, but the Club made the call on Wednesday to close the course until Monday 5th March for everybody’s safety, great to see our members, once committed are prepared to brave the elements.
The tour returns to action (hopefully) – with a much better forecast this week at the brilliant Silloth on Solway and favourite Formby Ladies on Friday.
Silloth on Solway is a true links test and always a pleasure to take the tour to each year, and we’ll look forward to returning for it’s sternest test in June when we host our 2 Day Silloth Challenge
*West Lancashire’s cancelled events of last week WILL be rearranged but just awaiting dates and will confirm in due course.
Justin Thomas was pipped to a World Golf Championship title last night by “Lefty” as a solid 1st playoff hole from Mickleson saw him beat Thomas whose par putt just slid by, but it will be possibly turn out to being one of the most memorable finish’s in recent times as Justin Thomas holed out from the fairway on 18 to take him to -16 and a share of the lead whilst England Tyrell Hatton again proved his class but this time on the World stage but narrowly missing out on the playoff through an unfortunate bogey on the last.
With Tiger’s return and all the other big guns hitting form at the right time – The Masters is going to be one hell of a tournament this Easter – I certainly can’t wait.
A bumper weekend in Finch Golf Travel World see’s Ian taking on a caseload of bookings, and as I type I can see him flicking through the portfolio of venues, scratching his head as his try’s to piece together the best deal for our golfers.
A fresh new opportunity is on the horizon also but our interest has only been revved up over the weekend and hopefully further developments on this can be progressed in the next couple of week’s Blog’s as is gathers pace. Keep your eyes peeled.
