Default Reporting from Kellmarsh

I;ve been up to Kellmarsh for a couple of days and just want to report to everyone what the grounds are like after all the rain we have had in England over the winter.
The parking we had next year is also fine so hope it keeps like it untill after the shoot.
I know its a few weeks away but it really looks good up there at the moment and if I have a worry I;m thinking my course is looking to EASY but I hope to change that by Easter week-end .
Keep practing
cheers Ian

As someone who tramps around in the mud in and around Northants and Leicestershire for a living, I can confirm that ground conditions are far better this week than they were 2 weeks ago.

The weather last year was fine for the Scott’s we all thought it was Summer time, it did get a little nippy around mid-afternoon and thought I had better put my shirt back on.

Seriously thanks for the update and we are all looking forward to coming down and competing at Kellmarsh once again.
