A golfer’s observations from the Bedale Golf Club in the Yorkshire Dales……
I was playing a round at Bedale
Not doing too bad up ’til now
’Twas the 15th with time left to win it
And I placed my ball with a ‘bow’.
You’ve all seen the helpers at Majors
with placards saying ‘Quiet’, ‘Hush’ please
And heaven help any spectator
Who dares to cough - let alone sneeze.
It’s not like that here at Bedale
From the treetops behind us - you know
Before I’d taken my tee shot
Erupted the noisiest crow.
I would not have minded a comment
If my shot had merited such
But the mocking noise from the culprit
I’m sure caused the ‘glitch’ to my touch.
