A Good Walk Spoiled!
This afternoon I joined King's Hill Golf Club at West Malling. In the late 1980s and 1990s I used to play a lot of golf and got my handicap down to 18, but what with one thing or another I just haven't had the time over the last few years. A couple of years ago I bought a new set of Wilson Deep Red Clubs but just haven't used them much. That's going to change. I played my third round of the year this afternoon and after a very shaky start (8 and 10!) I got into the groove, shooting a birdie on a par 3 (gaining me 5 points on the Stableford system - unheard of!) and a par on the next par 3. I ended up scoring 49 on the front nine, which bearing in mind the first two holes was quite an achievement. We decided to stop after nine as it was very wet and windy. Don't worry, I shan't bore you too much with my golfing exploits over the summer - well, I will if I do well! But if any of you fancy a game and you don't live too far from Tunbridge Wells, let me know!
