First season testing at my homecourse
Last weekend, I tested my trainingresult of the past few months in our monthly competition at my homecourse, the NoordNederlandse Golf & Country Club. I was very curious how my round would go: technically, mentally and ofcourse my course management skills. I was afraid I would need all these aspects more than I had hoped for, taking the harsh wind, the rain and the fact that the grass had not yet appeared from beneath the ground on the fairways.
My testgoal was to cope with these circumstances and play a round under 80 strokes. And… I did it! The first 14 holes I played almost by the book, +2. The last 4 holes I made some mistakes, +4. So in total a round of 78.
Good start of the season, most of the years I dit not start that well. Even with those circumstances #Happy!
It was a net game for the money prizes, but since I was the best scratch lady player and overall in the total field (ladies & gents) number 5, I ended up with a very staisfied feeling and a good botlle of wine.
Let the Faldo’s in Ireland and Wales come. Bring it on!!. And the Irish Strokeplay Championships under 18 as well! I am ready! With a big thx to my pro Annemieke de Goederen, who put me on the right path once in a while for the past few months 🙂
