Tee off in 30mins a little nervous like my first day back at school, not expecting much out of today's round but it will be great to be back

Managed to get out yesterday and again today. 2 balls each day, widely spaced so round in 3 hrs of millionaires golf in the sunshine. Short game a bit rusty the first day but better today. Course is fast and firm making for fun on the approaches - perfect old-skool links conditions :)

My brother in law got out on the West Links yesterday Ian - looks lovely, I've noticed that our course has been a bit more 'proper old school' links style than recent years.

Managed to play Sunday and today, even had a socially distanced drink in my back garden after the round with my golfing buddy who I hadn't seen for a couple of months before the rain fell.

Forecast was heavy rain so we went out with waterproofs on - weather came to nothing really - had a relatively heavy shower for 15 minutes or so around the turn and a bit of drizzle on the front nine, but it had all gone by the time we played the back nine - got off the 18th, walked the 800 yards home and had just put clubs and trolleys away when the heavens opened - it's pouring now and has been for a while.

The two guys in front of us were quick and the pair behind us slower so we had our bit of the course to ourselves - millionaires golf.

Much better irons tonight and driving is the best it's ever been, course is nice and brown and playing short, rough looks evil but isn't quite as bad to find the ball or play out of as it appears, loving it - can't wait for another hit on Thursday.

Well, without trying to offend, I think NB is over-rated whereas the Glen is under-rated. Not a great start at the Glen but lots of great holes. 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11 - 18 are excellent.
The only problem I had the first time I played (in a pair as a member's guest) was having to follow four Americans each having a caddy. When we caught them on about the 4th I thought it was a group of ramblers who has got lost. But I loved the course. Stayed at the Marine Hotel with a room overlooking the course.
