Royal Lytham - Thursday 18th August

Royal lytham in Lancashire was our prestigious venue for today. Our golfers had the chance to walk the path of legends.
Royal Lytham's St Annes Golf Club is one of the premier links courses in the World, host to eleven Open Championships, two Ryder Cups and numerous other major tournaments including The Women’s Open, The Senior Open, The Amateur Championship and The Walker Cup.
Renowned as one of the best designed links courses in the world with 174 strategically positioned pot bunkers peppering the fairways and surrounding the greens, lying in wait for errant shots.
The course conditions were tough, firm fairways and fast greens. Blustery winds and some afternoon rain made it a true lytham links test.
Our best dressed golfers or course today were matching duo Paul Mchale and Joe Sillet.
Our HIO hole was the 5th today, down breeze at 158 yard for men and 141 for ladies it was a better opportunity than some of the other more challenging par 3s.
The flag was absolutely peppered today it was hit 5 times but again no HIO to shout of.
The nearest the pin was won by David Fray who managed to stick it close early doors and held on to his spot throughout the day.
The longest drive on our lucky last hole were certainly no flukes, the ladies was won by junior golf Emily Gilmour.. just staying out the sand and on the fairway! Happy Gilmour Emily?
The men's longest drive was near the green, 360 yards down, this monster was hit by Charles Peck.
