What a delightful twist the day brought – a brilliant sunrise after torrents of rain! The sun's warm embrace turned nature's generosity into an extra layer of charm, casting the day in a radiant glow that felt like a gift.
Nature's Gift of Resilience
Despite the deluge that had drenched the course, its recovery was nothing short of remarkable. The course's sloping fairways, a hallmark feature, played a pivotal role in its rapid drying. What greeted golfers was a course unmarred by lingering puddles or Ground Under Repair areas, a testament to its resilience. Not a note of complaint was heard, only the appreciation for a course that stood tall against the rain.

A Stretch of Magic: Holes 10 to 27
The allure of the course remained unshaken, especially along the spellbinding stretch from holes 10 through 27. Here, the course unveiled an artful tapestry of holes that demanded strategic precision. To conquer the fairways and approach the undulating greens from a favorable angle required more than just skill; it demanded a golfer's cunning mind. Moor Allerton is no canvas for lackluster shots – its landscape, adorned with ditches and ravines, stands ready to mete out its own brand of golfing justice.
