Ballumbie Castle – Senior open – Stroke Play

Our first visit to Ballumbie Castle, lovely clubhouse with views looking out over the golf course. Not the longest course in the world but has a few quirky holes like the 10th where a burn snakes across the fairway followed by a large pond which cuts into the fairway at driving range. The pond goes all the way to the green making this 360 yard hole very much a risk or reward hole. The 11th hole is a 212 yard par three with water and out of bounds on the left, again all the way to the green, a par here is a very good result, but unfortunately not for me on this occasion. Only one over par at the turn I started back, par, double bogey (ouch), and dropped three more strokes over the closing holes for a gross 75 which won me 2nd Gross Prize of £35 in my age group.
