All summer long, when the course is crowded, when you are held up at Par 3's, when you are assisting/directing lost visitors, I have been longing for winter golf. Two or three holes between matches, no rush, crisp fresh air, a warming dram at the 19th. Well Friday was the start of it. With an 8:30 tee time there was frost on the fairways. By the 3rd my cart had built up a layer of frost on the wheels about 8 mm thick. On the 6th tee, high above the town, the wind was gale force and the chill factor felt like -10°C. How I longed for summer golf again. Are we fickle or what?

We had force 10 gales on Saturday, I hit 3 wood off the tee to the 275 meter par 4 16th and left it a foot off the green, the next hole, which runs in the opposite direction, I hit driver, driver, 5 iron and was pin high off the green...it was a long day!

Played golf yesterday morning, 9 am, in the rain, and my partner and I had the course to ourselves. Other than the green staff there was not another soul out there. I am not talking monsoon weather either. I had a showerproof top on but not full waterproofs. Now I remember why I like winter golf.
