As a newbie, Will the Kent ball be suitable for this course? or is there a must have one?

After Worthing Sad I need inspiration

After Worthing, all the courses will seem much easier. Very Happy

And the VTK ball from the Kent Open should be okay for a lot of the holes!

I am currently pulling together some promotional material with Wroxham Barns for the forthcoming British Championships weekend (and the Friday evening pro-am).

If you are planning on taking part can you let me know ASAP either via this thread or email at chairman@minigolf.org.uk

I can then ensure you get featured in the PR build up - a guaranteed way of ensuring you get a personal entourage of fans at the Norfolk spectacular!!

Thanks in advance,

Sean.

Would anyone who's going to be there on Friday be able to give me a lift from Hoveton and Wroxham station to the course at either 10am, 11am or midday? It'd certainly be very much appreciated and there might even be an ice cream in it for you... Wink
Cheers

That's great, cheers Sean. The trains I could get arrive at 10, 11 and 12. Which one would be best for you?

Either the 11 or 12 works for ua (ensures we have plenty of time to get to Wroxham / pick you up even if the traffic is bad).

Well played everyone - looks like you were outclassed by James in the end.

Still...a Senior and a Junior Champion in the bag represents a fine weekend for the club.

VTK!
