Refreshing surprise for Morecambe golfers as club reopens

As golf clubs reopened today, Monday, there was a tasty surprise for members at Morecambe with the reopening of their newly refurbished ‘half way house’.

Not only that, the mid-round pit stop will also be open seven days a week under the stewardship of local businessman Andy McMillan.

Andy, himself a Morecambe member, has completely updated the facilities within the halfway house, adding an electricity supply to provide hot meals and reshipments for the

players.

And as owner of the popular Pickles sandwich shop in Torrisholme, it is little surprising that there will be a variety of hot and cold snacks to boost golfers on the rest of their round.

Some of those members rallied around to give the half way house a lick of paint to complete the new look, much to the delight of new club president Peter Lovett-Horn.

He said: “The club is never short of volunteers and it showed when so many stepped forward to restore the look of our halfway house.

"Now we are delighted that Andy taken over the running of a facility that we hope will become more and more popular.”

As for Andy; well he is just looking forward to the season, not just as a golfing member of the club, but also in making sure his fellow players are never hungry or thirsty during their

round of golf.
