Thank you all for the excellent comments!!! Our trip is right around the corner and I cannot sleep for the excitement. To be frank it is never about the course we play but the fact we are together to enjoy it.
We have done this trip for six years now, and each one has been better than the one before it. I will be packing warmer clothing this trip than normal, and have been keeping in mind the speed of play in my preparations!!! It has never been a problem before, but it would in fact be a shame to be asked to leave..
After nearly six months of study on the courses we are playing (Pebble x2, Spanish Bay x3 and Spyglass x 3, this is turning out to be a very ambitious golf trip. I cannot wait!!!
