As it turned several of the guys liked the look of some of the bargains they found so it wasn't just Geoff and Mike who ended up spending money.
We arrived at Carnoustie a little early approximately 12.30pm and our tee times were 2.00 and 2.10pm. The reason for this was that we had arranged for lunch in the Carnoustie Golf Club. This is not a well known fact but the golf club is more than happy to serve lunch to visiting parties. Jane and her staff will make you welcome and serve good food at reasonable prices.
The picture is of the guys getting ready in the car park before they head off for the first tee, bet they didn't get this treatment at Loch Lomond ! As you can see the weather was not great but would you believe it, the minute they stepped on to the course the sun came out, some people are just born lucky. Before the guys arrived they changed their arrangements and travelled over to St Andrews a day earlier than planned, so they could arrive at Carnoustie refreshed and to quote Tom "kick its ass". Wish I had a pound for every time I've heard that. Guess what ? Tom was right and if he has told me the truth he did kick its ass !!
Dinner was at The Russell Hotel where the party were entertained by Helen and her staff, they enjoyed it so much they have booked to go again tonight. By the way a message to Mike Twigg and party "the staff forgive you ". Only joking they said they had enjoyed your company and asked how you all were.
Today Scotlands finest Kingsbarns.
