Check out this review on the Golf Days UK Norfolk Tour 2012 – The Race to Turnberry by one of our tour regulars and runner up of the 2012 Tour, Adam Saunders.
“As I write this I am today the proud owner of a new custom fit set of Titleist AP2 irons. These represent an overall second place finish in my first full year on the Norfolk Tour ‘ Race To Turnberry’ through Golf Days UK.
Second to the eventual worthy winner Dean Ashton, and what a great year it has been. In addition to the irons, I was also lucky enough to win a new Cobra wedge, several packs of premium golf balls, gloves and other useful accessories, all thanks to individual placing’s in some of the 10 events and on the day spot prizes. As much as these fantastic prizes were most welcome there has been so much more to the year which made it the great success.
First and fore mostly the infectious enthusiasm and organisation of Ben and Sam. Every event running like clockwork, all filmed and uploaded to the GDUK site with a synopsis of the day and an updated leader board. The final event at Sprowston Manor bears testament to this with onsite club cleaning, high-tech scoring system, meal and presentation with the now customary, and merciless ‘bloopers reel’. The tour remains entirely friendly and relaxed, indicative of Ben and Sam’s personalities. I have met, and played with all manner of new people, some of whom I have gone on to play social rounds with, and am pleased to now call good friends. Moreover I have played courses through the tour events that otherwise may have crept under my radar –the magnificent final holes at Swaffham, the developing Heacham Manor and Great Yarmouth and Caister immediately springing to mind.
The 2013 Tour looks set to be even better, with new courses added to the roster, with both Royal Cromer and Eaton representing ‘Majors’, a tweaked order of merit scoring system, and a final event staged at the beautiful Sheringham course, reward for the top 15. The carrot of Gleneagles being the overall prize only months before the staging of the 2014 Ryder Cup, however I have my eye on another set of irons next year, for winning the order of merit!
Huge praise and thanks to Ben and Sam, and to all the players on the tour who make it what it is – a thoroughly enjoyable – yet competitive golfing experience. Roll on 2013!”
