A regular visitor to Flinders in his early years Peter Thomson honed his skills on this cliff top course in preparation for his assault on the British Open Championship.
"Flinders is one of those unique coastal courses, - not quite links - neither is it woodland or marsh, that perches high on the cliff top, making it a distant cousin of Pebble Beach and a relative of Muirfield. It is in a fine family of golf that is always best played in wind on salt-sprayed turf with a view of the blue sea. Flinders course is friendly yet full of surprises and intrigue. Bring all your clubs because you are going to need them and a good understanding of what Golf is all about."
