Having been what some may call a golf widow for the last 10 years, with a partner who is not only passionate about the sport but also Head Greenkeeper at Princes Risborough’s Whiteleaf Golf Course it seems like sometimes I can never get away from it!From lengthy boring bouts of it on the TV, to long explanations of the rules that I clearly don’t care enough about to understand, to picking up rogue golf balls around the flat, it’s a constant part of my home life
Imagine then my delight then when I secured next weeks rooms booking for the William Hunt Trilby Golf Tour which is being held at Buckinghamshire Golf Club.
It was difficult to tell how the booking would go or if it would be a success as all golfers needed to book individually. The Tour gave us a great advertisement on their website and in the last few weeks bookings have been increasing by the day.The Buckinghamshire, affectionately known as the ‘Bucks’ by its fans, is a majestic golf course and stately home, surrounded by lakes and rare wildlife. Headed by Irish golf legend John O’Leary it is widely regarded as one of the most breathtaking golf courses in England.The course was created by the legendary John Jacobs O.B.E., former European Tour player, Ryder Cup Captain and in recent year’s renowned course designer. His skilful use of the natural feature and local topography, allied to the devoted skill of their greenkeeping staff who present the course to the highest standards year round have meant that the course has quickly become recognised as one of the finest inland courses in the British Isles.
The bookings have come from all the golfers and caddies’ taking part in the tournament and it has been great for the hotels occupancy in August and a real boost to the reservations department. Plus the food and beverage team and I are hoping that they all follow suit with my partner and his golf friends and love a drink!! Whatever I have said about the sport in the past I take back – I now love it!!
