Quality day out on the links at Elie. Blowing pretty hard, the pro's were struggling out at the Open but we were embracing a new form of golf out here in the fresh air. Check out the video, but again a huge thanks to Elie for having us and a must play if you're in this part of the world playing a bit of golf. A pure old world links course built alongside the township where folk from Edinburgh come to holiday. No par fives, relatively short in places, but more than a few great wee features: random roll offs around the fairways, pot bunkers, plenty of hay, a few stone walls with dreaded OOB beyond them and more than a couple of blind shots. Oh yes, and just a few million dollar sea views. We played quickly as well going through a few groups and getting around in about 3 hours. But in short - watch the Video.
Sans golf, we were through Anstruther the home of the famous chippie (fish and chip store which are the takeaway of choice over here) and then.... to meet our pal Doug! Who has made it all the way from NZ to live over here in Britain and is looking for a job to start his traineeship as a professional golfer. Hopefully we can help him out over the next few weeks as Doug is probably our only friend from home looking for a career in the world of golf and he'd be a great addition to the industry.
