Hogan hole-in-one

No not legendary golfer Ben Hogan, but our very own Chris Hogan, who is a regular player at Porters Wood Golf Course. The ace was acheived on the 124 yard par 3 second hole, during windy conditions on Easter Sunday. Congratulations Chris!

I think my last post regarding better weather may have been made in haste as since then we have had half a foot of snow and temperatures have plummeted once again. It seems like every month we hit a record for bad weather, with March 2013 being recorded as the coldest March in 50 years! North West England and Wigan in particular seem to have born the brunt of it again but the course is now clear of snow and although we have had a couple of frost delays the course has been open by 9am every day over the past week. We are back on the grass tees and as always we are playing on our proper greens.

Last tee time is now back to 6.30pm, so come on down and get your swing in tune for the Masters next week!
