    It's done.... he rides off into the sunset!

    Pension sorted, and notice in. Furniture removal to Spain booked. Just need to get a new club sorted... Valle del Este, Desert Springs or Marina Golf? Valle del Este is nice, but not tried Desert Springs yet. Marina Golf doesn't look a bad layout but looked a little tired last time we were there.

    And then there's the car to sort. The boss wants something sensible, like a Kia C'eed, Renault Megane or an Astra. A compromise might be a GT version.

    Time to crack a bottle of wine.

    Sounds good. Hoping to be not too far behind you - certainly in the initial reduction in my working week may happen early next year. Maybe also a sabbatical. Have fun sir!
    to infinity and beyond...

    ...well from 10.0 to 9.4 this year would be nice.

    And last medal of the year (Oct) saw me play to handicap but CSS was +1 so that was me down 0.2 from 8.3 to 8.1

    Job done

    Re: It's done.... he rides off into the sunset!

    Valle de Este is a good choice of club. Played it every other day when we stayed there one summer.

    Wednesday had a competition run by the Irish bar near the first tee. I came second three times in a row.

    Hard to beat a birdie birdie finish there in the dying light, practically lit by the hotel at the end.

    I like the back 9, the front is OK but the back stands out. There are just so many great holes there!
