Braid Course Under Threat

I played the magnificent Royal Norwich golf course yesterday in the company of their professional Simon Youd. Simon liked the funky Parallel range of Golf shirts that I showed him in the brochure. He thought that that they were some of the most stylish, trendy and unique shirts on the market. The Royal Norwich Golf course is a James Braid layout, which for those of us who have played his creations will know are always well designed and testing courses. Braid did not work with the aid of earth movers and used the contours of the land to set out his courses so they have a "Natural" feel that most modern designs lack. I would encourage you to play the course while you can as some of the holes are under threat from a potential dual-carriageway up-grade - that may mean the whole course moving to a new location..... is time running out for this layout? The 8th hole is simply magnificent and the drive on the 13th gives you plenty to consider as you assess your tee shot. Swing Easy!
