We stayed on one of these lovely chalets, which are based on the huts at Brighton Beach.
I often look at postcards, and wonder where they’ve been taken from. This ‘classic’ view is from Hinksey Heights golf club. I had to crop it to get rid of the power lines!
The Boy had a couple of guest tickets to the PGA Golf Championships, and was keen to have a look at the course. My initial plan had been to inhabit TWC’s sofa with a good book or three, but Reader I accompanied him. Despite a waterlogged course, and horrid bitey insects I’m glad I did:
- I had a nice walk – the course was built in the 1920s and so there are lots of mature trees etc. It was a bit like Bedgebury Pinetum in places.
- The people watching – all types, all ages. I especially enjoyed a family of ladies all clad in the same pale, lime green and two Sikh chaps with their pinstriped trousers tucked into their black business socks.
- It was lovely seeing The Boy so happy, striding around fulminating about golf course design.
As well as being a WAG, I was also in Cyprus on assignment – to take pics of the Korineum Golf Club for Golf Course Architecture magazine. I won’t include those shots here, these are the ones I took for myself :-).
Here is the magnificent Five Finger mountain which dominates the course. So called because it looks like the knuckles on a hand.
