I had teed it all up perfectly, we used to hit off at 7:56, there is a train that will get me there at 7:40, so that is enough time to have some putts, say g'day to all the old blokes and rock out!

but no, with summer times being here, the first tee off is at 5:30 or something like that so we're off at 7:20...

QR with their holiday time table mean that the next earliest train is a lazy two hours before that one. So driving it is. 

 

Obviously my first game there with the new driver hitty stick so I hope to smash it around there 

 

What time is 5.30 for a hit off??   :o    You Queenslanders are strange.   B)

5:30 for a hit off is pretty close to 5:30.

Musings of the round.

The one and only single permanent green keeper Piney has is on Christmas leave at moment so the rough was unkempt, this worries the old people and slows the round down, but otherwise sweet as.

The take away from my second last game was to ensure I didn't leak anything hard right, I did this at my last game and tried hard to do it again for my first shot yesterday. Big pull hook across the adjacent fairway. While the fairways are generally tree lined, they're easy enough to clear.
Flicked a lob wedge over for a two putt par.
I had to hit a drawing knock-down 7 iron, under a branch about 20m away, then over a pond up to the green. Hit it just short and chipped up and down.
The par 5 third runs parallel with the 6th, if you're long enough down 6, it will feed back down to the 3rd. Smashed it exactly where I wanted, but it got held up in rough. I now had to hit a low stinging drawing 5 iron to try and hot it on for 2. When I say I had to, I really had two options, one to hit a difficult shot or to punch it out to set myself up for an easy 100 wedge. So I started my 5 iron too straight and hit sat at the bottom of a tree. All I could do was hit and hope. It skooted past the green, but a flop down the hill and one putt for my third par with only one decent shot.

For generally the rest of the round I had my swing sorted and was really hitting it well. But on reflection, every other drive was on the right had side, be that still on the fairway or misses on the right hand side. It wasn't worrying me at the time because I was still scoring, but I reckon my feet alignment was closed by the amount I was hitting them straight on the right. If only I aimed left.

There's not really much in there above that is actually that interesting, so you've probably wasted some time reading g it and not taking anything away from it.

I bogeyed the last to finish the back nine with 8 pars and 1 bogey. One bogey is definitely enough.

Not sure when my next game is yet, but hopefully I can continue this form.

I put all my golf 'appointments' in a separate calendar in Outlook and sync that to my phone and tablet.

Or I wouldn't know when mine are either.
