It took me almost four years to find out, as it just seemed that nobody I spoke with knew just when the Triadelphia Country Club was opened. It was located at Bruno in the Triadelphia District a few miles outside of Man. When I found out a few years ago the golf course was ceasing to exist, I made it a point to drive there and have a look. What I saw was not pretty.
