    4BBB Burgham Park, NE Area, 24th Sept

    Folks, it has been a quiet time in the NE this year. My club, Burgham Park GC are having a 4BBB, Stableford, Open on Sunday 24th Sept. It is 20 a pair inc coffee and a bacon sandwich on arrival. Tee times are between 8-12.48.

    Playing with a member is 15, I asked a price for a group and was quoted 25 so 10 a head including a little something before you tee off is as good as we are going to get out of them.

    Anyone fancy it? Some tee times have gone but there are plenty left still at this stage, you should be able to see via the website http://burghampark.co.uk/Home.aspx We could identify tee times on here, partner up and then book in a pincer movement so that we are pretty much in a block. We would need to book and pay in our pairs rather than me book en masse but that is not beyond the wit of everyone on here once we agree on times etc.

    I'm going to play anyway so even if we just get a 4 ball going from the forum it would be good to see some people. The more the merrier.

    For those who don't know where it is, Burgham Park GC is about 7-8 miles north of Morpeth, directly off the A1. Very easy to find, not like some of the more hidden courses up here such as Tyneside or Seaham . It is quite a long course but it is very forgiving and flat. You might find yourself using rescue a bit more than usual for your second shot but you wont come off the course feeling tired.

    Post if you fancy it and what sort of time appeals.

    I would have been up for this, Lord T but unfortunately I'm away on holiday. Never played the course. Would need to be off the yellows!

    Picture Steve McQueen holding two fingers up 😁. It begins.........

    I'm easy on the time, obvious as I am only 10 minutes away. What is a good starting point, around 10.30, 11? Does that give time for people to get there or could it be earlier?

    If it ends up just the two of us then you can take your pick.

    Plenty of trees. Most of the holes are tree lined, it is just they are a long way apart . Honestly, it's the truth. Mostly old, long established trees but others that were planted when the course was built about 20 odd years ago and need to grow further.

    The website is very dated and needs to be renewed with much better pictures and a flyover.
