Yesterday as part of my Welsh Marches Tour I visited Y Golfa GW/NW-061. This summit is part of the Welshpool Golf Club so on arrival at the club I went to the club secretaries office to seek permission to park and walk to the summit.
The club secretary said there was no problem but then noticed the SOTA badge I had sewn on the sleeve of my fleece. He pointed to it and said “are you one of those radio guys” to which I replied that I was and expecting to be asked to leave. The secretaries response was “that’s good because I have never met such a polite and well mannered group of people”.
My thanks to all me predecessors who have been to that hill for leaving a very good impression. It is also one of the most beautiful golf courses I have ever seen though I would not like to play there!
