Strathallan round-up

Cary, Neil and I went out for a quick nine holes the other evening after work at Strathallan. I haven’t played there for sometime–even though its literally only a couple of minutes from home–and boy has it changed! The course layout has been completely revised, with only the ninth hole in the same position as I remember it. It was a little bit confusing at times, but we worked it out in the end.

I got off to a flier with three pars in a row, despite not hitting the ball well off the tee all day. I made up for it though with an exceptional (modesty has no place here) short game and had one chip, one putt finish to all but three holes. I ended up with another two pars for a total of five for the round, and a final score of 43. Cary also shot a 43 with some uninspiring, yet consistent bogey golf, and Neil was a few shots behind (less than he thought). It’s funny though, I finished the round with 5 pars and felt that I did not play all that well. I guess at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how you get the score.

I really enjoy playing at Strathallan, it’s got some great holes with challenging tree and bunker positionings and the shortish fairways suit my game. It’s always in pretty good nick too. The greens were spot on and the fairways pretty good considering the time of year.

The guys will be back out again next weekend (at Ringwood), so if you’re interested in tagging along for the action, leave a note here or contact us.

    It’s a shame that Stan couldn’t join us. He had to pull out at the last minute.
    My “uninspiring” golf helped me level the game when I was 4 down with 4 to play ; )
    The lay out of this course makes great use of their limited space. I love the way they have trees in the middle of the fairway. It’s a course I should play more often, the proximity to work & the price are unbeatable.
