The in-laws live up at Bribie Island so I took the opportunity today for one more game while on holidays with a couple of mates at Pacific Harbour. I really like this course and I try and play it whenever we stay with the in-laws. Nice day today, fairly warm and with a decent breeze blowing as well.
I hit the ball great right from the start, especially off the tee. I was driving it long and fairly straight which is pretty important around Pac Harbour! My irons were okay as well but I felt like I wasn't scoring as well as I was hitting it..........story of game recently it seems. In my defence, I was getting a few unlucky breaks. One of the worse plugged lies in a bunker that would have been tap-in distance if the wind had drifted it 1ft further to the right as I expected and an unplayable ball off the tee despite the ball being 6 inches off the short grass. These all lead to a few dropped shots. I did manage to birdie the over-water, Par 3, 7th and the tough finishing hole.
Stats for today were;
8 greens in regulation (didn't take advantage of my driving as much as I should have!)
31 putts (hit lots of great putts actually....but they didn't all go in!!!)
40 + 39 = 79
A good ball-striking round but just need to get better at getting the ball in the hole.
Pacific Harbour was in excellent condition if anyone was considering playing it over the holidays.
