Sunday Southport Special!

Today I’ve been to Southport, home of the famous Royal Birkdale course which has hosted the British Open and Ryder Cup plus other presitgious events.

Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get a round there, but I was able to play on the Southport Pitch and Putt course with our most successful non-celebrity golfer to date, Chris Fossey.

It’s a 9 hole couse and on our first round the scores were:

Stan 37
Chris 41

The man behind the counter was a bit of a tit, but he did let us go round the course again for free as it was early and no-one else was there. The second round was better for both of us:

Stan 31
Chris 40

The idiot man behind the counter told us that the course record was 26 so I was very pleased to have posted 31. We went for a beer to celebrate and it tasted rubbish and cost £3 per pint. And I had some chips that were £1.50

All in all, a lovely day by the sea, which surprisingly for Southport was actually visible today. Lovely.
