Who is "the BFTA"?
I'd suggest it's those 2 or 3 club members that can actually be bothered to put in the effort to turn up on the day before in the rain.
They are probably the 2 or 3 who make the effort to turn up to regional meetings and the odd one of them also makes the effort to turn up to national meetings.
No they are probably not the best to lay out a course, but if they don't, who does?
And there is a guidance document sent out by the BFTA Competition Manager, which suggests some do's and dont's when laying out a GP course.
And you wouldn't believe how often it's completely ignored.
