Cross Country Golf
01 October 2009
Just back from a great trip around some of the best golf courses in Scotland with two straight shooting ladies from North America.
We began at Turnberry and considering they were right off an overnight flight they played very well around the Ailsa course.
Our next stop was the Carrick Course at Loch Lomond which has 9 holes in the Lowlands of Scotland the back 9 in the Highlands.We played in the Highlands and the highlight on the rainy day was a birdie at the 15th for one of the ladies holing of 5 wood from 150 yards..
Across the country to St Andrews and it was a joy to discover the Castle Course which sits high above the town.During our time in this historic town we encountered a few well known golfers ; Ernie Els and Padraigh Harrington to name but two.They were in town for the Dunhill tournament which is being played this week.
North next to Gleaneagles and the Kings course designed by James Braid.A real challenge in the rain, but what fantastic greens and scenery.
South next to Archerfield in East Lothian to the Fidra course which proved a good test.Amazing accommodation onsite here which I hope to try out next season.
Our final call was at Dalmahoy, scene of the Solheim Cup Triumph of the GB and Europe side back in 1992.It'sa great test and fairly long so stamina / a buggy is required.
On the whole a good cross section of courses( only 5 balls lost all trip) and some very comfortable accommodations at Turnberry,The Old Course,Gleneagles and Dalmahoy.
Why not let me plan your golf trip for next season?
