Winter wonderland! [posted 08/01/21] 

Overnight snow left "Shawholm" looking beautiful under virgin snow and a clear blue winter sky.  Credit to Adam Richardson, too, as this didn't see either winter golf, or the "Shawholm Shack" takeaway, closed!

The club's great new takeaway service - offering coffees, teas, other hot drinks and soup, and a selection of snacks, has been doing a raring trade, providing much-needed warmth and sustenance to park visitors.  A new initiative in these COVID-19-restricted times, it's been a way of retaining the club's connection with its local community, and complements the revitalised Winter Golf section.  If you've not been down to "Shawholm" in recent weeks, why not pop along, say hello, and warm yourself with something from the "Shawholm Shack"!
