Shakespeare and St Enodoc Golf Club

Published: 24th April 2016

On the occasion of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death in April 1616 and following a tip from one of our Members Niblick has been nosing through the Club records to check and see if the Bard ever played at the Club. And surprise, surprise it seems that he did ! Load of old tosh I hear you snort, well for undeniable proof consider some of these quotes from the Bard.

What did he think of the course ?

"This precious stone set in the silver sea"

"This blessed plot" (Richard II)

What did he think of his mixed foursomes partner after a bad round ?

"Get thee to a nunnery !" (Hamlet)

After a bad round in February

"Now is the winter of our discontent (Richard III)

"We have seen better days" (Timon of Athens)

And a good round in May

"As merry as the day is long" (Much ado about nothing)

On trying to remember who he had played with in the Farmers Roll Up

"I cannot tell what the dickens his name is !" (The Merry Wives of Windsor)

And on entering the Club House

"Have we no wine here !" (Coriolanus)

If you know of any other apposite quotes please email them to Niblick and who will put the best on our Facebook page.
