Nice inplay at hole 11

I got up very early for being on holiday; 6.30 grabbed a shower and got down to the breakfast table outside on the promenade. I was clearly the first one, the tables were not sat yet but the young guy making them was really friendly and talkative and I didn’t mind, I was alone anyway.

I got a full breakfast with cheeses, juice and coffee and was already for the coming 4 hours of golf in the wind. Was the wind hard the day before then it was close to storm now, but nothing should stop my golf. I met with David at the car and we went to Golf de Sperone looking at the waves on the sea; they were at least 15 meters long, it was going to be windy.

We arrived at Sperone at 7.

David happy again
25am and there was almost none which was odd since the day before it had been fully booked in the morning. The woman in the pro shop said that people had called off their slots all morning. Next to us there was a small French guy who decided that he wanted to play with us since his friends had cancelled. He was one of these world champions that knew everything about everything and yet not. He stated that it would be impossible to play the back 9, which were the best holes and why you come here.

After finalizing the first nine the world champion retired and after some discussion amongst with the local president of the club who said why not we continued, and thanks for that. The back nine was far less disturbed by the wind except the wonderful hole 16. We played both well and fast and had a fabulous time. Coming in we were met by a lot of questions because we were the first that played the back nine that day.

Once back in the clubhouse we had a cold beer for each leg and smiled at the wonderful course where we had so much joy the two last days.
