Only me and Stooey today as Matt was fitting a kitchen and FroomeDog thought he may get wet!…Shortened course due to this torrential rain but it was actually a blue sky but very windy. We only play 12 holes and decided to call it a day and have a fry up in the clubhouse.
Stooey started off solidly with a Par on a very tough hole, played long with the wind, I carded 6 so wasn’t the best of starts! I double bogeyed the next too and blobbed the Par 3 leaving me with 2 points in 3 holes. Stooey on the other hand already had 6 so I was chasing early doors.
The course was hard to play to be honest due to the temporary greens and the course is very wet. Considering our course is Links it is still very very wet. Some of the bunkers are full of water and remember we have deep pot hole bunkers.
I carded a few Pars and a birdie on the very short Par 4 12th, but Stooey matched me pretty much for the rest of the remaining holes and due to my awful start he won. Well done big boy! There wasn’t really many good shots apart from my 45 yard pitch that I nearly holed and stopped 2 inches from the cup on the Par 3 after a terrible tee shot…
Nothing a fry up didn’t sort out afterwards and the clouds come over quickly so it was good timing.
We are desperate to play a course with a full 18 so come on the Summer. Planning has already started for Stooey’s golf stag party…Portugal could be the venue!…We’re very excited. Lots of new products coming soon too so stay tuned.
