PostSubject: Llandudno Golf Tour September 1st to the 4th.   Wed Sep 07, 2011 12:14 pm

Day 1 Thursday.
All 16 of us met at the Old Cattle Market car park in Kettering at 7.15am. 2 lads went in a van with all the golf bags, & the rest of us were in a 16 seater mini bus. We set off up the A14 to the M6, & proceeded North. A quiz was organised with questions on sport & James Bond, who played JB in what film & who sang the title song, I am happy to say that yours truly won with 40 points, take note Delboy. wink Surprisingly we had a steady run up to Keele Services, near Stoke on Trent, for a tea & pee break. Then back onto the M6, past the Thelwall Viaduct, to the M56 junction 20, then the A55 & onto the A470 to Llandudno. We arrived at our hotel The Royal, http://www.royalllandudno.com/ & left our bags to go on to our first course of the weekend. The trip cost a total of £285, which included 4 rounds of golf, bed, breakfast & evening meal for 3 days, which we all though was pretty reasonable. The prize money for the golf was £15 each to the top pair & £10 to the best individual score. Plus £8 per Par 3 nearest the hole, but was rolled over if not won, so the next hole could be worth £16 etc.
Our first course was at Conwy GC http://www.conwygolfclub.com/ which was very picturesque to say the least. We had done good time coming up & had 3 hours to kill as our first tee off time was not until 2.37pm. So we had either a bacon or sausage roll & a couple of drinks. The draw was made to see what order we went in, & I was drawn out in the last group of 4 with Tony C, (there were 3 Tony’s), Tex & Pat. We teed off & spent the next 41/2 hours playing golf in glorious sunshine. We finished as the sun was going down, & I had amassed 25 Stableford points, the winner had 38, so I was about 8th after the first round. We went back to the hotel for dinner, which consisted of 6 starters, 6 main meals, with an extra added special every night & 6 desserts. So fed & watered we went down town for a couple of drinks, then came back to the hotel for a night cap.

Day 2 Friday.
We got down to breakfast for 8am, as the first tee off time was at 10.08am. Breakfast was the usual cereals, fruits, juices, toast & marmalade & a full Welsh Breakfast, which basically is no different from a full English one. :n!b: So suitably fed we set off for our second course this time actually in Llandudno called North Wales GC, again spectacular views of the sea & surrounding countryside. http://www.northwalesgolfclub.org.uk/nwgc.aspx Again I was drawn out last with Tony D, Garry & Rob, & again played golf for 41/2 hours in glorious sunshine, but a lot windier. farting lol! This time I scored 33 points, finishing joint second behind the winner who had 35 points. This meant that I was now about 4th on the leaderboard. We sorted out all the winnings & headed back to town, where myself & 2 others, took a walk along the promenade & then onto the pier. Forgive the photo quality as they were from my phone & not a camera. Im sorry





We then went back to the hotel to chill out ready for dinner, which meant unfortunately we missed the first & most exciting half of the England v Bulgaria match. We then went to the Kings Head pub which is adjacent to the Great Orme Tramway. http://www.greatormetramway.com/ After that we went back to the hotel just down the road for a night cap.

Day 3 Saturday.
Again we had breakfast at 8am, as we were teeing off at 10am this morning at Rhos on Sea GC. http://www.rhosgolf.co.uk/ This time I was drawn out first off, with Stewart, Derek & Pat. We had to look out for the weather, as it was forecast rain, which duly arrived as we were on the 12th fairway. Luckily, it only lasted about 35 minutes, & it had stopped by the time we got to the 16th tee. On the 15th Par 3 124 yards, I was nearest the hole on the green, & duly won £16, as the previous Par 3 was not hit, kerching. On going into the Club House I found out that I came second with 37 points, behind the winner on 40 points, but I won another £15 kerching again. dancing So all in all, I was lying 2nd on the leader board, 8 points behind the leader. We went back to the hotel, & chilled out ready for dinner. We went back to the Kings Head for a few drinks then into town, then back to the hotel for a night cap.

Day 4 Sunday.
We got up earlier today, as we had to load the mini bus, before breakfast, as we were teeing off at 9.52am. We duly had breakfast, & set off for our last course at Prestatyn about 40 minutes away. http://www.prestatyngolfclub.co.uk/ Today the format was the bottom 4 went out first, then the next & so on. I was in the last group with Martyn, (the leader by 8 points), Tony B & Tony C. Again we teed off in glorious sunshine, & by the 9th hole, I had clawed back 2 shots, so Martyn was leading by 6 shots now. We didn’t really think about it anymore until the 16th hole, when I asked Martyn what his score was. He had scored 8 points & I had scored 11, so now I was 3 shots behind him. Well after the 16th & 17th holes I was only one shot behind him, going down to the last hole. We both teed off & landed on the fairway, Martyn was a bit further ahead than me, so we took our second shots, further down towards the green. My 3rd shot got on the green, but Martyn’s went through the green & he had to chip back on. So by this time, word had got round that it was only one shot between me & Martyn, & the other lads gathered around the balcony overlooking the 18th green. Martyn chipped on about 8 feet past the hole, I putted about 15 inches from the hole. So if Martyn putted this in he had won. He steadied himself & eyed up the putt. He pulled back his putter & hit the ball towards the hole, & would you believe it he…………………………………………

To be continued, (if you want to know the outcome) wink

He pulled back his putter & hit the ball towards the hole, & would you believe it he…………………………………………




















































putted the ball in to the hole, to beat me by one shot. sob He scored 138 points to my 137, how close was that. sad
But all in all, we had a great weekend & the weather was fine to us, so no complaints from me. :-bd:
