Bentham isn’t the easiest place to get to. When the event was scheduled in mid-March, the course was under several inches of snow. 66 players had signed up for Night Golf and such was the enthusiasm of professional, Nick Barron, he still wanted to go ahead! We have been angling to get an event done in the snow so weren’t against the idea. The lights would look fantastic in the snow!
Sadly, we don’t drive 4×4’s at the Night Golf Company so it was unlikely we were going to even get there. The event was hastily re-arranged for the last night of before “summer” began (on March 30th). It was still sub-zero and the snow was piled up at the sides of the fairways but the course was clear. A great turnout of nearly 50 players still made it and I have to say, the 1st and 18th looked quite stunning.
Local photographer Tony Crossland www.tcrosslandphotography.com came down to capture the event and we were very impressed with the photos he took. So impressed we invited him to Heysham the following week. The photos are on his website and have already proved to be a hit with over 200 visitors.
The members were fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed the event and we will be back at Bentham in October to do it all again.
