golf heaven = JLPGA tourny course.

Recommended Posts

I received  a nice  invite to a  LPGA track   a cpl of weeks back , the  course was in immaculate cond for the time of year ( cherry blossom season)   and the clubhouse is  a thing of beauty.

greens at 10.5 on stimp and  billiard table smooth.

yards:  6890  blue tees

great  day  , really great day out  , we played 27 holes.  we were  in fine,fine  form so the day didn't go  wasted !

36/36/34  for the 3 nines. for moi. it cud have been anything this day with a  bit more attention to detail.

errrrgh missed a cpl of very makeable  putts and my chipping was insanely good ( thank you tourstage x-wedges!)

8 birdies , 2 doubles , 2 bogies  on the day  AND...........  4  birds in a row  on front nine to break ( ha, smash!!!!) my  birdie record in a round -let alone on one nine- let alone-......... in.......a .......row!!

boooooooooooooooooooo yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!!

FRUSTRATING   front nine actually,  with 2 doubles 4 birds  no bogies and  2 hit the pin chips to save par,  for a  36 ! 

oh man that cudda /shudda /wudda been anything  that nine  ( and exactly why we love/hate  this game )

So  i, started double  then par ( hit pin with chip) , bird, bird, bird,  bird  (ohh yes! ),then took 3 wood  to protect the score , (errgh never again )on the 7th and hit the damn thing STR8 into the lake  to scramble for a  pin hit  tap in  double...!  (   oh I think u can imagine my face after that  blooper !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

 

I don't know whether to be super angry at not scoring or thrilled to bits with the result!

anyway it was one of the bestdays out EVER on a course, hardly  anyone out  and a few nice liquid refreshments  to follow!

 heres  cpl of  snaps of , JDM golf gold !

Very nice!!!    While I love the, "play golf and then go home" simplicity of US style golf,  I do enjoy the full day experience of going to a nice course in Japan starting with a tasty breakfast, followed by a full 1 hr lunch with beer at the turn,  then after completing the round end with an Onsen bath to relieve the tension before heading home.   We have many Sakura trees planted here in WA but I've yet to see one on a golf course.   Such a nice view with the Sakuras.

Nobs this was pure heaven this day,  there were so many Sakuras in bloom.

 and yes FULL day , left home at 630am not on the shinkansen this time....fresh hitachi no 5  to ibarakai !  it   takes 80 mins to get to the course (very close  )

merican style breakfast ( eggs ,bacon, toast ,salada , orange juice  coffee)   then a range sesshy, spent mainly on the putting green and chipping green, the tee off,   after front 9  a  10 min break for a hot dog ,new style course !.. . then  back nine, 15 min break then last nine ....  post  game onsen, and 2 hours on the deck  FULL allotment of  food, beer. and pure quietness with nature.... cab to station, train back o the big smoke, dinner at Italian restaurant and  home watching netflx  more than a little worse for wear  at 10.30pm.
