Fitz Golf Tour 2018 Day 3 - Monmouth

 

The Rolls of Monmouth is another interesting course, much more of a parkland nature, so it made a nice contrast to the previous two days. It is situated in lovely rolling countryside and played around the Charles Rolls mansion – which particularly makes a great backdrop to the 9th and 18th Holes.

  

By the end of the Tour, I think that I had managed to tire out everyone quite thoroughly – some were fit to drop and perhaps rather jaded at the Rolls, but I think that all agreed it had been a very enjoyable three days of golf and general good fun!
