Thanks for Barney's report and the photos. I thoroughly enjoyed the Devon and Cornwall trip, despite the wet weather at first and thank you to you and Barney for hosting it so well. I'm attaching some photos in case they are of interest. Best wishes Helen

Our Devon Trip was wet and windy so we couldn't make the most of the magnificent courses there. However, the Imperial in Barnstaple was very comfortable with excellent food and service. On to sunny Cornwall - fantastic links courses and a pleasant parkland one at the hotel to finish. Many thanks to Barney and Jennie for hosting the tours and for my surprise birthday celebration.

Thanks Jennie and Barney for being super hosts and Iain and all at DSG for kindly making this trip so well arranged and so much fun and to all the participants for making us feel so much a part of the regular gang. The whole experience was really outstanding. The choice of resort and its facilities world class, the company and food, memorable and the golf in the glorious weather was the cherry on top of the icing on the cake. We look forward to more trips with DSG in the future and that all this was accomplished by all those involved both at DSG and at The Westin during these extremely challenging times.

I’m laughing as much now as I was at the awards ceremony. Thank you so much to our group for keeping each other sane. I expect white shirts at some point at the 2021 Open ( you had to be there).

Thanks for the blog Barney...!The rest of you were lucky in getting out of Dodge City during the day Saturday. By the time I left in late afternoon my flight from Malaga was delayed two hours as the Spanish were slowly shutting their country down. Inbound planes were being turned around in mid-flight and air traffic control was unable to cope. Absolute chaos…! I was too late to make the last evening shuttle back to UK so stayed at an airport hotel overnight as the guest of KLM and went out first thing next morning. I made sure I didn’t leave any lights on as the last man to leave though…! 😊 All OK and safe and sound in Hull (couldn't return to Finland and we are teaching online for the rest of this semester), despite the golf courses being closed at the moment. I have no problem with the “house arrest” concept, i.e. stay at home except to go get food and no socialization. The virus is highly contagious and may be more fatal than previous ones likes SARS, which my sister in Canada worked through when she was still nursing. So, we all believe the only way to contain it is to stay away from people to stop its spread. I know libertarians don’t like that but it is short-term inconvenience for long-term health. I hope all of you are staying safe and I will see you folks when we next rendezvous for golf, hopefully at Buxton in July...!

A really enjoyable weekwith a number of longstanding friends on the trip, and some new faces playing good golf and, enjoying the enchanting town of Tavira with its quality restaurants completing enjoyable days. As far as the Golf is concerned If we played 2 at Cima 2 at Ria plus one at either Benamor or Isla Canela that would be ideal for me . We did play Quinta do Vale which is a challenge, I suggest beyond most of us and , Its usually blowing a ' hulie'. Mike C

My first time and definitely not my last as I enjoyed it so much I am going to Portugal over the festive season. I was very wary going on my own, not a problem, everyone was very friendly and as we dine and play together we all became firm friends. I am just waiting for the weather to improve to put into practice what the patient David taught me and not forgetting the delightful Liz, who charmed us all with her stories.
