The Sacred Nine

Enjoyed the morning in the sunshine at The Royal Worlington & Newmarket Golf Club. I believe the only 9 hole golf course to be afforded a “Royal” title. Often referred to as “The Sacred Nine” it is a deceptively challenging course. I made several unintended visits into the woods, rough and had practise at scooping balls out of the stream! This enchanting club in many ways harks back to older times..as old as the well worn flagstones in the clubhouse which was once a Suffolk Farmhouse. This is the “home” course of Cambridge University’s Golf teams and where the come to play, practise and receive coaching from the excellent young professional Richard Beadles.
