For Straight Down the Middle Golf Society’s September monthly competition, 28 players set off to Desert Springs with a mixture of trepidation and anticipation of a challenging day of golf. As always the course was in spectacular condition and after a bacon roll and a coffee, we made our way to the first tee, where we were greeted by the club professional and his assistant, who gave us some valuable advice before setting us off (I wish I had listened!). This probably didn’t help as they continued to stand and watch as we all took our first tee shots. There were a mixture of ‘Out of Bounds’, ‘Into the Pond’ and ‘Topped Drives’, but we all survived and went on to experience the long carries and tight fairways for the rest of the course.
Thanks go to all the staff at Desert Springs for providing us with a first class facility in first class condition.
After what was a very long day we all made our way back to Trevi Bar on Camposol B for prize giving and some well-earned refreshments. Thanks again to the management for their hospitality.
