After several missed turns due to Colin’s beliefs that he knows the way, the sat nav finally got us there at what felt like 3 a.m.
In the foursomes we started off a fantastic team, cool calm and calculated only to somehow end up with a double bogey on a par 3 and some idiot forgetting to mark the score card and following his own set of rules. As Les sank a slippery 20 footer on the last , frank was first to come with a finely laminated copy of the rules and disqualify us on the spot for assuming 4 of us wouldn’t miss from 3 inches. Frank would travel home with his pro vs in his pocket, congratulations frank.
After checking the forecast I was assured no rain was due, so it was rather fitting that it started after 1 hole. Steve Doran was determined it still wasn’t wet enough, and found the water 3 times on the 3rd hole.
John seemed determined to inform me he “hates golf” and Ste had given up even looking for his balls , the 3 people in my group averaged a cracking 20.6 points and set the bar very high.
It was a lovely course and I enjoyed beating josh by 16 points and Foode by 17. My second major presented to me in a car park when everyone had left felt phenomenal.
