Save The Derryfield

The Derryfield Country Club in Manchester is doing some construction work this summer, and as a result will only have 9 holes open. The “Old 9″ as it’s known, is a fun, relatively easy course with a couple of dogleg par 4s and a mouth-watering par 3 that seems to beg for an ace. Continue reading “Save The Derryfield”
