Ray and Sue Toomer certainly made the most of Henlade Hill small venue though it is, with a variety of interesting courses.

We had another great turn out which was surprising as the weather forecast was not grand.

This page documents the latest known condition of each course! It relies on everyone's cooperation to ensure the courses stay runnable.

Most of these courses were developed in collaboration with other parties and hence the club does not have full control over the courses' upkeep.

Simplify - see You Tube video

Training video

Focussing on the big features on the map which are easy to see on the ground helps you go faster. Less time is then spent studying irrelevant detail on the map. This skill takes a bit of practice.
