(played the first without managing to get the ball airborne !)
BrianWhat can I say, I'm a very talented guy Niall
As it turned out FBD had to pull out yesterday as well but Ben and I played and had a super day. Forfar played fast and firm with some nicely browned fairways and the more I play the course the more I appreciate it. Every hole is distinctive without being eye-candy, WOW look at me type architecture. Just great use of the topography on not a large parcel of land.For those that don't know Forfar is the very first club to have an 18 hole course from its inception. A worthy claim to fame but not one that trips off the tongue too easily. Originally designed by Old Tom in 1871 it was redesigned by James Braid in 1926. I'm sure I've seen before and after plans but not sure where.Anyway, Ben was great company and put up with my dodgy golf in the early holes (played the first without managing to get the ball airborne !) and the game rollicked along quite nicely until towards the end when a game a few holes in front started lagging. Having a wee nip every time someone had a birdie putt (that's an attempted birdie, not an actual birdie) and also another to celebrate the long drive on each hole, apparently took its toll on them.If you are in the area then I heartily recommend playing Forfar.Niall
