Probably final round of the year at my home course, The Sawmill Golf Club, in Saginaw, MI.
It’s been a good start to the year on the golf course and my handicap is under nine for the first time.
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. 🙂
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!
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.
I always like to eat a variety of things when I travel.
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.
Dune bashing as part of a desert safari was also a lot of fun!
Other views from the trip, including trips to the Dubai Miracle Garden and Burj Khalifa.
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.
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…
At Arcadia Bluffs.
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.
Good enough for 4th place, but 6 strokes behind the winning team.
