Lakeside Lodge - Lodge Course -13/09/18

Perfect conditions, bright sun but not to warm and little wind. Nothing to blame there, although the fairways are still like concrete, which is a problem for me at least. With that introduction you can guess that things didn't go too well.

8th fairway - 13 September 2018

I put my drive in the left-side trees on the 1st but cleared well with a 6-iron. I then put a hybrid shot about 50 yards short of the green and pitched on for 4. But I four-putted to ruin everything with a resounding blob. I found the trees again on the 2nd and managed to hit one playing out, sending my ball about 10 yards further back from where I started. A good hybrid put me within a chip of the green and two putts rescued a nett bogey 6.

My hybrid tee shot on the 3rd again found trees and my chip out left me a pitch over the bunker. I thinned the shot and not only cleared the bunker but also went off the far end of the green, almost making out-of-bounds. I then stubbed the short chip, needing another to get on. Fortunately I only needed one putt for a nett bogey 6. On the 4th I at least kept out of trouble. A good drive was followed by a 7-iron to lay up short of the lake. My 6-iron then put me just off the left side of the green, from where a chip and one putt gave me a nett birdie 5.

I was short with my hybrid tee shot on the 5th and a thinned 8-iron then put me off the back of the green. However, I could putt on and then single-putted for a nett par 4. I went left onto the bank on the 6th and my next hybrid shot didn't make clean contact. I was just short of the green with my pitch, putting on and single-putting for a nett par 5. Things were improving somewhat.

After a drive and 3-wood on the 7th I put my 6-iron shot into the bunker on the left. I got out, but only far enough to land in the next bunker. I got out again and was on the green but needed two putts for a nett bogey 7. The 8th was tidier. A drive, 3-wood and hybrid put me just short of the green on this long par 4 (441 yards). I chipped on but missed the gettable putt, the second giving me a nett par 6.

I ended much as I had started. On the par 5, 9th, a good approach with a drive, 3-wood and hybrid left me about 100 yards from the green. But my iron shot went off the left needing a chip back on. I then three-putted for a blobbed 8, the same as on the 1st. So I blobbed the first and last par but managed to scrape a score on the other holes. But it was definitely not a very elegant round, totalling 55 with 17 putts and only 12 points.

Game Golf scorecard.
