How much are you looking at paying?
Looking at paying up to £500ish. Now unsure as me mate is arsing about over it. From being keen as mustard he's now being really non comittal over dates he can get off. Its complicated that he's said hes gonna take his eldest son on holiday over summer. And his son (19) deffo wont go for a golf holiday.
I dont know why a 19 year old would wanna go on holiday with his auld feller anyway.
Gonna firm it up one way or the other with him this week. Think we'll still get away but it might be a 3 night job now which isnt that great really as I'd like 4 nights min.
I've just been through GolfBreaks so far for a quote, but they're getting on my tits now phoning me up asking me to confirm. Also mailing saying that they cant guarantee me a room or tee off times.
On the plus side I've played Letham Grange, Auchmill, and Carnoustie in the last 3 days. Knackered now like :-)
Auchmill was a nice surprise for a course. But boggy in some places (to be expected I suppose - and theyre doing drainage work) but some really nice holes.
It was quite mild today at Carnoustie, but the wind was still a big factor. At one hole I had a 2nd into a green. The wind was blowing straight in my face, yet the flag on the green was being blown 180 degrees the opposite way. Anything you toss high into the air is in the lap of the gods really. I hit a high lob wedge at one hole. Hit it really well and looked at its on the way to the flag -straight as a die in line. Ball got to the top of its arc and I watched as it was blown totally off its trajectory to end uo 15 yards to the left of the flag. And there wasnt a breeze to be felt. Mad.
the last hole, we played off the white raised tees, and the drive back towards the clubhouse is awesome. Its a double fairway with the first, and the wind blowing from the left made you aim into the middle of the 1st fairway and just watch it come back onto the 18th. Great stuff.
