Golf – Day 3
While actually still on day 2. Here are a few pictures of the Trump Turnberry resort. The hotel & golf course are undergoing major renovations with the course being closed for 8 months. The starter actually said that they play golf all year round which I did not know.
After golfing at Turnberry we drove for 30 mins to a place called Glenapp Castle only to be turned back at the gate. Only residents were allowed in. Did not even get to see the castle. All Chris’s fault.
Here are a few photos of the Marine Hotel where we are staying. It overlooks the 18th hole of Royal Troon.
For my first breakfast, I had the full Scottish hot meal which included haggis. Chris wimped out. Unfortunately, I did not take a picture but here is one from today’s breakfast. I actually liked the haggis.
Today we did a tour to Culzean Castle which was quite impressive. Here are a few pictures.
Today we played Royal Troon and the wind was howling. First 9 holes with the wind, last nine against. Chris played well but Barry basically sucked. Barry leads 2 -1 in courses played. A couple of last pictures as we leave to go to St Andrews tomorrow.
Just a small tidbit regarding writing this blog. Our wi-fi signal in our hotel room is very weak. The best signal strength is on the toilet seat and that is where I am creating this blog. Very handy.
A special feature I will be introducing will be something called Chris’s Corner.
So Chris what do you have to say on your corner?
Stayed tuned for some more insightful commentary from this corner.
