[audio] In conversation with John McCullough about this year's International
I asked John if our course this year would be as good as England was last year. John said why don't you come up and have a look and see what you think. So that's what I did over Christmas. While I was there I asked John for a few of his thoughts
The making of Gill Hall into an International Course
We often see locations that would be great for the international except for a few obstacles that prevent it from being a worthy course. In the case of Gill Hall there used to be a wet hollow in the middle where the qualifying course is going to be in 2018. There was also a ditch and hedgerow dividing the course in half. These natural obstacles used to prevent the running of a supreme course there.
That was a few years ago, but then James Porter very kindly offered to remove the ditch and drain the wet place. Now thanks to James this ground lends itself to a perfect international course.
