While looking through the thread of last year's Frostbreaker for the results, I stumbled upon a message Toby had to send out. I copy it below so everyone can be reminded Whitcombe is a working farm on private land and that we can't behave there like we own the place. Toby's brother is actually a really nice guy, but please let's not do anything stupid or he could simply decide to bar us from ever going back.

Last year some players also turned up early and unannounced to the Summer House when it was already in use by a non-golf group. I really shouldn't have to say this, but if you would like to visit the Farm before Friday evening, or arrive earlier than Friday night, then it would only be common courtesy to contact Dotty and James (ask Toby for their contact details) first to ask if this is ok with them.

Thanks for reading, let's have a great tournament.

In Jan 2010 Toby wrote:

I have a majorly pissed off brother this morning because an early bird parked in front of the barns so my brother couldn't get past on the quads to do the early morning sheep feed. He's threatening to send the offender home and to cancel the summer tournament. So on a score of one to ten on the pissed scale, it's an eleven.

So, couple of things:
1. Whitcombe is a working farm - so we must not get in the way, we must shut gates etc. If sheep end up in the wrong place this w/e I fear my brother will forbid future tournaments! So make an effort and ensure the gates are shut properly. If in doubt, shut a gate!
2. parking is always a challenge - especially Frostbreaker. We have 46 players coming, so that'll be a lot of cars. It's wet and we can only get a handful of cars on the side of the drive. If you're brave you can park in the mud in the 'car park' by the main entrance. But I think it would be helpful if you could park in Beaminster and shuttle yourselves to the farm to reduce the problem here. Whatever you do, don't park your car in my brother's way!

I meant to add, the above is not intended to drag up old news. The individuals concerned all apologised to Toby, Dotty and James, but we can do better this year by not putting ourselves in positions or creating situations for which we have to apologise.

With parking is it the same deal as at the Open last year? (That's the only time I've been to Whitcombe).

Last summer, driving towards Beaminster, I took the second entrance (on the left) and drove round to a large field where everyone was camping. Is that where the parking will be this time?

Tom, don't take this as gospel but usually at Frostbreaker the car park in use is at the top of the main drive to the farmhouse. Driving away from Beaminster this is the next road on the right after the one that you used in the summer. The car park is a dozen or so metres down on the left. As has been advised it is small and gets very muddy so you would be advised ot drop your kit off and park in Beaminster if possible. It's a short walk back to the farm along quaint country lanes :wink:

regarding parking, I refer the right honourable gentleman to the invite on page 1 of this thread
Please park only in the enlarged car park provided at the top of the Farm drive. Please do not drive or park anywhere else on the Farm, including the drive.
That car park is likely to be a quagmire, so, as Paul suggests, it might be the best (or only realistic) option to leave the car in Beaminster

Thanks. As indicated in my previous post, I was unaware exactly to which 'drive' the invite was referring. How long does the walk in from Beaminster take?

walking from Beaminster takes around 10 minutes.

Where's the weather report? well, I can tell you it's already pretty windy but i think we're going to be lucky on the rain front - seems to be going north. Patrick, Edd and I are preparing the course this morning. Nothing extravagent, hopefully it will amuse. HypoJump is a new one. Otherwise winter favourites Fishy Digit, Wild Field and Goolalong.

look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Baring (so?) in mind the advice regarding turning up earlier than Friday evening, I hereby broadcast my intent to arrive before it gets dark this afternoon.

See y'all later.......

Fantastic tournament!

I had a great time and learned a huge amount about playing in strong wind. Lunches and freshly-made scones and flapjacks were awesome. Thanks Toby!

The par fours on the 18 were Watery Gate, The Padock, Horror and Wild Field, so that makes it a par 59. The final 9 for Open and Adv included the latter two, so it was par 29. I don't know if the Ints played this final too or a different one.

Wait, was Wild Field a par 4? Damn, I nearly 2ed it - that would have been my first ever eagle :|

Wasn't Hypojump a par 4?

Yeah, I think it maybe was. That would still make the course par a 59 (it was really a 58 lat time but I miss-added up).

They're up ... http://www.pdga.com/tournament_results/64908 :)

You've got the next few days to analyse. All PDGA numbers are correct afaik from registration. If you've not got a current paid up membership then you won't get stats. These have been checked by Rich.

I will be sending the sheet through to the PDGA on Wednesday. After this point there will be no changes :)

Cheers,
