Another night spend in the nightclub with our dancing shoes on once again may not be the best preparation for an early tee time, but it wasn’t going to stop us strapping on the dancing shoes and joining our Turkish hosts for some traditional dancing.
What didn’t help was dad turning up 20 minutes late for our agreed start time, followed by Dennis realising he’d forgotten his shoes! We arrived at the golf course bickering among ourselves, with no time to practice and little time to spare before we were off.
However, five birdies on the first five holes playing Texas Scramble was a dream start…unfortunately it didn’t last.
We didn’t play particularly badly after that, we just found that everything we were holing previously was now slipping by.
We did manage a birdie on 10 though, which we convinced John he’d holed for an eagle two, until we got to the green and it was behind the pin.
The weather was amazing and The Pines Course is in great nick, so we loved today’s round.
We’re off out to Café Istanbul tonight, which is the restaurant owned by Ahmet who works hard with Matrix Travel to ensure the Team Challenge runs smoothly.
Then it’s back into the nightclub as it’s karaoke night tonight, so we’ll be up there singing some Killers, perhaps some Rolling Stones.
We cannot sing, don’t know any of the words and struggle to read though, so it’s going to be an interesting night!!
