They've had the course since 2004 but only just found them. The box isn't anything to do with them, as it's just an old Barker & Dobson sweet box.


The also had two new benches made recently. They were going to have some lettering carved into them, and Alan decided to have 'Arnold Palmer'. The problem is that a lot of people, not realising he was a golfer, have been expressing their condolences, assuming that they're memorial benches for someone they knew.


Received two of the pencils from Christine at Prestatyn :-)

I got hold of a postcard showing the South Course of the two Arnold Palmer courses - Little Oasis - at Cliftonville, recently. It's the one without obstacles but it shows the course when it had a ramp - like hole 2 at Hastings, and a lighthouse.

Previous owners had mentioned how local skateboarders had destroyed part of that course, but I've noticed how local campaigners have voiced support for the local youths who did it, and their need for a skate-park. They should have been prosecuted for vandalism. Scum.

There are a interesting course photos of Arnold Palmer courses here. I know the first one is Exmouth - which is opening for February half-term against the council's wishes (the owner of DJ's café arrived one morning to open up only to find the council had boarded it up, and they forcibly removed the vintage railway carriage where refreshments were served). I think the last one is Skegness Butlin's. But the other one is a mystery. It is probably a Haven camp one although doesn't really look typical.

It arrived Saturday, when I was out - neighbour kept it for me. I'll bring it with me to the next tournament, to show it and so you can take photos; I might be at one soon.

I'd have liked to have had this on one of my walls. Short-lived franchise indeed. Only 31 years.
