On a tranquil spring morning, the distinctive metallic ting as the
driver club swings and cleanly hits the dimpled hard white ball,
further down the pristine course hearing a distant shout of “fore
left” as another golfer miss-hits a shot and warningly calls.
The long curving fairway to the 13th hole is lined by evergreen
conifer trees and long uncut grass, and has a mark of 3 par,
strong northerly wind blows the ball off course into the rough
incurring a double bogey as the wind carried ball travels too far.
Distinctive red and white flagsticks flutter on the immaculate
greens of Saint Andrew’s Old Course, golf’s historical home,
the large crowds of enthusiastic spectators at the annual Open
Championship show how appreciation of the sport has grown.
Many years of practise, concentration and precision are required
to master the game, and the overlap position of the hand,
an unfortunate shot rolls into a hollowed bunker and requires the
sand wedge which raises a conspicuous cloud of golden sand.
A scenic coastal line course provides challenging undulations,
with flowering yellow gorse and spectacular sea views,
the winding procession of holes and fairways are highlighted
with sun and dappled shade as transient clouds pass through.
After much deliberation, a light chip shot is required to gently roll
the ball across the level pristine manicured grass of the green,
walking out of the clubhouse with three other players early on a
summer morn reveals a softened misty tranquil emerald scene.
After playing a congenial 18 holes with friends on a blustery autumn
day, in good humour totalling the scorecards to see who won,
enjoying the physical and mental challenge, and satisfaction of a well
well played game despite unpredictable rain, wind and sun.
Happy Birthday Justin love from Jennifer
