Price of golf

Dear Editor,

Why do the likes of Messrs. Lloyd and Wooldridge write such nonsense about the price of golf in the Algarve (in last issue’s Dear Editor section)?

“100 euros + a round, I can play in Turkey and the UK for half that price”. He can play in the Algarve for less than half that price BUT not on an international championship course.

“Now going to Turkey because of the stratospheric price of playing here” How many international standard courses are there in Turkey?

If they really are golfers they must know that if they should wish to play a round on Saturday on the Royal Lytham course, it will cost them £212 each.
