I was lucky enough to be invited to play at Lytham recently and whilst I thought we were taking a risk playing in February it was an offer I just couldn’t resist. As it turned out we got lucky with the weather and as you would expect the course was in great condition. Some of the bunkers were GUR and it wasn’t anywhere near as hard and fast as it will be for the Open in July but it was still a tough but fair test of golf. I really enjoyed every minute on every hole but I did enjoy holes 8, 9 and 10 in particular. To complete the experience we also stayed the night in the dormy house which was excellent. I can’t wait to watch the open now to see how big boys play those last 6 holes.
