Today is the seventh anniversary of the death of Seve Ballesteros, three-times Open champion, twice Masters champion, winner of scores of tournaments around the world, the inspiration for the reinvigoration of the Ryder Cup and – notwithstanding that Nick Faldo has won six major championships to Seve’s five – the most important player in the history and development of the European Tour.

The opener at Seve House Golf Course…at 55 metres long, this is called ‘El Bunker’, and one can see why

In the grounds of what was his home until he died, two and a half  years after undergoing surgery for a brain tumour, is a small (very small!) par-three course. Seve had got the greens sorted out before his passing, although the tees were added afterwards by his sons. The whole layout only adds up to 544 metres – put another way, the length of a long par-five – but it is a lot of fun.

The 5th initiates a three-hole stretch which Seve called his personal Amen Corner. The holes aren’t as tough as 11-13 at the Masters – together they about equal the length of the par-three 12th at Augusta – but, of course, I did manage to miss two of the three greens with my pitch shots. Although not by as much as golf misses Seve.

Pre Amen Corner – the 4th, ‘El Corto’, at 50 metres the shortest hole on this charmingly short golf course
