The @dunhilllinks Championship concludes at the Old Course today. Favorite memory of playing the Old Course in August? Strangely, that we almost missed our tee time. 🤦🏻♂️ True.
We stayed at the Dunvegan Hotel, which is about a nine iron from the starter's shed. After a leisurely proper Scottish breakfast, we left the hotel at 6:56am for our 7:10am tee time. You can see @cehufnagel walking down Golf Place in the distance. We arrive at the starter, who warns us about the late arrival. "Arrive early next time. Or you won't have a tee time." The three of us paid our £175 and showed our handicap cards; two seconds later the starter on the tee called our group.
The only plus in the near debacle is that we didn't have time for the usual first hole jitters. Nonetheless, I still hit my drive over in Ian Baker Finch territory on 18 near the fence; made par. What's your favorite memory of playing the Old Course?
