Although there was a round I was playing when it started out with a light drizzle and calm situation, then a squall line hit with straight rain. I'd just hit my tee shot when the winds and rain hit. And it got cold and it stung. I quit the round. By the time I got to the clubhouse, the downpour started. I got a rain check at the desk. Essentially a 6.5 hole mulligan. lol.
Hi all, So, my wife and I have decided to head way north for our summer holidays this year, and she's actually allowing me to take the clubs, to play 3, maybe 4 courses when we're up there... So, the question is, which ones? At the moment, I have carte blanche, but ideally courses near somewhere she could entertain herself. At the moment, I'm thinking definitely Dornoch and perhaps trying for Troon and North Berwick. I'm happy to pay whatever, so also looking at Prestwick, Turnberry (but not sure what the status will be after course edits), Kingsbarns, Castle Stuart, Cruden Bay and Machrihanish. For anyone who's headed up there, any suggestions are welcome! Thanks, Ben
I've mapped out a 72 on google map and then added in crappy putting and made it a 78. However, I know that battle plans only survive first contact with the enemy. Then if I look at the course as hitting a bucket of balls, how many bad or off target shots do I hit out of say 93 balls? 15 or so that will cost me a stroke. Sometimes one of those is on the green. Sometimes one of those is in the rough. Sometimes one of those is on the fairway. And that's how I get to 93 from 78. Face it. I suck at golf.
