Sub Nine

It’s been a good start to the year on the golf course and my handicap is under nine for the first time.

From the Tips

We had a light turnout for golf, so Don convinced me to play all the way from the back at the black tees. It was a lot of fun. We got to play a lot of different shots and see the course from a different perspective. Helps that I scored well. 🙂

Dubai 2020

I’ve been back from a two week trip to Dubai for over a week, so it’s time I posted all of the photos and videos!

Coffee

I had my first flat white on the very first morning and fell in love with the drink. I also had plenty of other coffees.

Food

I always like to eat a variety of things when I travel.

Night Golf

Without a doubt, the coolest thing I did was play night golf.

I also have a video of me playing an entire par 3, which I posted several weeks ago. So  go check that out.

Desert Safari

Dune bashing as part of a desert safari was also a lot of fun!

Sights

Other views from the trip, including trips to the Dubai Miracle Garden and Burj Khalifa.

Mostly Gyms

Finally, some random other things.

The travel time and jet lag from a 9 hour time difference was pretty brutal, but it was well worth it. I’d definitely go back some day.

Playing #12 at Emirates Golf Club – The Faldo Course

Last night I played The Faldo Course at the Emirates Golf Club in Dubai under the lights. It was incredible! At the turn, the couple I had been playing with called it a night because the back nine was backed up. I got behind a bunch of groups so had time for more photos and videos.

Hole #12 was playing 142 yards according to the GPS on the cart. I pulled out the W from the set of Pings I had rented, choked up to take something off it, and you can watch the result…

Stay South

We were lucky a line of storms stayed just south of us. I was +2 on the round here playing #14 so really didn’t want to leave the course. Bogeyed 4 of the last 5 holes to shoot a 78.
