I think this was the first time I’d been back since the 90’s. It’s a lovely beauty spot, especially on a sunny July morning, with great views across Warwickshire and Oxfordshire. While Uncle Ian did the Blue Catherine and I did two courses: first the Orange and the the Yellow. Unfortunately, due to the limitations of the area, the Yellow was very similar to the Orange, but in fact this was good from Catherine’s point of view, since she could do it with very little help from me.


Update: I was surprised to discover this was a ranking event. The HOC events at Sandwell Valley and Baggeridge should therefore’ve been ranking events too, I’d say, which would’ve encouraged better turnouts.
