You know who you are.....

I'm very pleased to announce that Brian Samson has uploaded to his wind trainer app the league course that was laid out in March of this year, as another option.

If you turn the wind speed down it becomes predictably easy. so I have no idea where this Windy Ridge bit came from.
Personnally when I was last there,,just before the coffee,I thought it was a p***y cat..
Are you doing any of the GP series Rich,might give me an excuse to visit and fit in a bit of surfing.

I think you need to get out more Rich, Sywell is king of Wind. As a straight line course (mostly) I think no matter the wind strength, at gp level there would be high scores at shebbear.

Personally if the Swefta Gp is to be held elsewhere from E.d, the Avon hawks is the regions best ground for me.

I doubt if I'll ever witness Sywell personally Simon so I'm happy to take everyone's word for it that it is the windiest ground. The last thing I want is for Shebbear to keep that reputation.

Our present layout at Shebbear is of course essentially a club ground arranged with a view to putting on regional league shoots, and I think one could say that about most clubs. Any GP course could be laid out to take advantage of the four acres that we are not using at the moment.
