He had tee'd off almost two hours before us. So played in as a 4 ball with them holding us up for the last 4 holes, but we were still round in three and a half hours, which in my experience is quite quick for the championship course in summer in the afternoon. Would have been under 3 without the hold up. Poor guy on his own though was over 5. He was philosophical as he had worked in the far east and said that's what its like out there on courses.
    Surely that is as much the fault of Royal Dornoch. The caddies should be told to let people through.

    Played Lancaster yesterday in a best 2 from 4 open. Course was in great condition and the greens were rolling true and very slick. I'd recommend a trip there if you have not played before. It's a great setting.  

    The rough was pretty brutal and if you just missed the fairway there were lots of lies with the ball sat right down and it was hard to get the ball out with any control. I think we scored 81 or 82 points but had a great back nine. Personally, I won nearest the pin, had a 2 and got a box of pro v's for my efforts......I also, just missed 2's on 13 and 18 in front of the hall. Lovely evening for it !

    So near and yet so far. I played exactly to handicap today with just one 3 putt on the card which gave the only double bogey. I feel as if I am getting there at last. I need to up the birdie count though with just 2 today.

    too much money rolling in for them to care, every 4 ball of visitors is worth more than the membership fee paid by one member.

    members on the whole ( the ones who caddy anyway) don't mind, getting cash and keeping their fee's artificially low .

    I played twice today. This morning at Hillside in a ladies open, sadly I could not stay out of fairway bunkers so didn't score very well but I do love the course so didn't worry too much about my game.
    This evening I played in our medal, I parred the first 2 holes, but then after 3 bogies took 4 from the edge of the 6th for a double. I birdied the 8th which was the start of a good run and I play 9 holes in level par, so I was just 6 over after 16. I hit a good drive and 2nd shot on the 17th and then from nowhere an awful scuffed shot, followed by chip that hit and tree then 3 putts for a triple bogey 8, which I then followed with triple bogey on the last where I left a shot in a bunker then missed a short putt.
    Absolutely gutted with the finish, 6 over for 16 than 6 over for the last 2 alone. It wasn't tiredness I felt great. On the plus side, at least I buffered.
