North Berwick

Lesson in Scottish golf

We drove around 2.5 hours south of St. Andrews to play North Berwick Golf Club. We have played a lot of very well known courses so far, which equals a lot of tourists and especially American tourists. North Berwick is a little further off of the beaten path and gives you a complete feel for Scottish Golf. The junior members tournment teed off right in front of us and the clubhouse was situated away from the starters shack with a sign stating that it was for members and their guests only. The whole course area had the feeling of a park, since we were playing on Sunday and the course is all public land.

We arrived with plenty of time, so Brian had a chance to give Carrie a chipping lesson. I had managed to catch Carri'es cold, so I used the time to relax instead of practice. Luckily Carrie was feeling better.

Everyone managed to play a decent round. Carrie hit come excellent drives. I pulled my cart all 18 holes in spite of feeling yucky and Brian shot a 72 (one over par). David was also hitting well. I would say we had a successful round a North Berwick.

We were lucky enough to end the day with a wonderful meal at the restaurant at Greywalls Hotel, Chez Roux. Needless to say that even at a really nice restaurant wee have trouble behaving.

Definitely. I haven't had time for facebook for a while, but I will have to update my profile picture. Which one do you think? Brian's funny face or mine?
