‘Dia das Mentiras’

April 7th, 2017


‘April Fool’s Day’ fell on a Saturday this year but that did not stop several golf companies sending us ‘fake news’ including a detailed account of Donald Trump’s plans to build a new course in Southport on ‘England’s Golf Coast’. This came with the authentic-sounding Tweet, “The beach is covered in grass. It’s gonna to be a great golf course. Really great.”

But my favourite was the picture from a new golf course project in Portugal where there is apparently a new bunker called ‘Nunca Sera’ (illustrated) which is said to be the largest in the world.

Enjoy your Masters Weekend.
