Hey Rob,

Yeah most of it holds little appeal.

It could be that we're closeted in the high walled villa for two weeks, which wouldn't be bad, given we've got servants for everything, and the pool is about 3 steps from our bedroom.

The rest of the tribe are sort of planning what they want to do, including wanting to go and get their valuables fleeced by a bunch of rampant monkeys in a forest, and see some temples, and of course, go and buy some cheap crap at a market or two, none of which really appeals to me, (so good days for a game of golf I figure).

No doubt we'll all find something to occupy our time and possibly enjoy ourselves, so long as we stay out of gaol.

Don't forget the mandatory things to do in Bali

Be legless on the plane going there and/or before takeoff
Ask the pissed birds on the plane to show their t1ts
Bring home a Bintang tee shirt
Learn the Indonesian for fark off and leave me alone
Lie to the bride about how bad the sarong she bought looks despite her bargaining to reduce the price by a dollar
Get pissed before lunch
Have your hair braided
Try the moonshine cocktails
Get a bad tattoo
Feel crook on the plane home but reflect on how good the cheap booze was
Get held up for hours at quarantine by the tossers who insist on buying wooden crap

Just a quick update ........ and Beacy Brad and I now have two courses booked for our most prestigious 2 man tourney.

 

The first course on the agenda is Bali Nirwana, which, as soon as we have drained our putts on the 18th green, is being handed over to Donald Trump in order to be remodelled and refurbished, complete with new hotel, villa's condo's etc. Hopefully they won't have started carving up the course before we get there.

 

And speaking of The Donald, before he developed a similar place a couple of years ago, also in Asia, he allegedly pretty much demanded from the local government that a toll road be built, in order to improve access to the area of his intended course. They agreed, and suddenly the value of his property tripled..... :o

 

But I digress .....

 

Our 2nd booking is at Bali National which recently celebrated its 2nd anniversary since being rejuvenated including apparently "becoming the 3rd Best Renovated Course Worldwide 2015, 2nd Best Golf Course in Indonesia 2016, 3rd Best Clubhouse in Asia Pacific 2016 and Top Ten Best Golf Resort in Asia Pacific 2016".

 

Whilst not on the coast, it looks like a pretty nice course, so it should be good fun. :D

You never know. I figure I won't be in anything more than shorts for the whole time I'm there, so I should get a half decent tan for the middle of winter ... of course it may wash off the second I set foot back in Aus.

Quick trip update ........ and the clubs are just about to be packed, probably this evening.

 

I've just learned that the flogs at Jetstar apparently want to reach into my pocket for another $25 for an "oversized baggage charge", which is yet another thing to add to the pre flight job list. Apparently this is something they've decided to introduce in the last few months, given the proliferation of "boogie boards" that head over to Bali I suspect.

 

Of course that extra $25 in no way entitles me to add to the meagre weight limit of 15kg of stowed luggage. Thankfully, the Eagles and Birdies travel bag when fully loaded with clubs usually only weighs about 11.5 kgs.

 

Just to lighten the load in the travel bag a touch, I'll take the heads off my driver and 3W, and put them with the 7kg carry on stuff, along with all the golf electrics (GPS and rangey), whilst packing the travel bag with some lightweight attire for the games.

 

Meanwhile Bradley is currently stumped up over there already, and quite possibly enrolled in a "Butch Harmon" style training camp, since he seems to have disappeared off the radar.

 

The good thing is, at least by the time I get there he will have sussed out if there are any golf shops worth visiting on the isle, and possibly gotten over any initial stomach disorders.

 

I'm starting to look forward to it now, as I reckon I'm well and truly ready for a break, and especially one that includes some golf. :)
