John Helm: Playing golf in the Pyramids
Oct 7 2009 by Mel Booth, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
I’VE been lucky to play golf in some exotic locations, but never before in the shadow of one of the seven wonders of the world.
The Mena House golf course is as close to the Pyramids as the River Thames is to the Houses of Parliament, so it felt extraordinary to fear hooking a tee shot straight into the giant edifice down the ninth.
Thankfully I didn’t, and the passing camels didn’t get the hump.
