Our round at Freeway

Since my last trip out to Freeway golf course quite a few holes have changes on the front nine. The 1st is now no longer a long par three it is a par 5, just a little bit different ; )

One thing about his course that is anoying is there is no direction from green to tee & then when you find the tee there is no indication of where the fairway goes. You need to find a metal plate in the ground to confirm you are on the right tee. Anyway enough bitching on to the round.

Stan, Neil, Dick & I made it out on Thursday morning. If we believed the weather forecast we may have pulled the pin. In the end it was great day for golf.

The fairways were a little wet under foot, there hasn’t been all that much rain so I wouldn’t want to play here after a week of soild rain (sorry I said no more bitching). The greens felt soft but were still pretty quick. With the mounded greens this can makes things a little tricky. Stan found out the hard way on the 5th green. He run his ball over the edge of the hole & it kept on running off the green, very stiff. That was Stans lot for the day, the amount of putts his missed by the narrowest of margins was a crime. Three putts were the order of the day, very occasionally we had a one putt.

We all started off with horror holes, I managed the only birdie of the day on the next & no body had any joy until the back nine. Neil & Stan both started off the home leg with pars & Dick was happy not to put his ball in the water. Dick was next to get a par on the 13th. After that I was had a nice run of pars on the 15th, 16th & 17th & only just missed my par putt on the last for a perfect run home.

We had a great day out, the weather was kind even if the putting wasn’t. Hopefully Stan is going to arrange a day out at his home course Craigieburn in the near future.
