The double shank!

 

We have just returned from a successful trip to South Carolina, Golf in America really is enjoyable

 

Jonathan & I took in the sights and sounds of Hilton Head, Charleston and Kiawah Island. We Stayed the Westin Hilton Head for three nights

and played 6 rounds in the space of 3 days taking in the great courses at Palmetto Dunes which offers every standard of golfer an enjoyable option

Starting at the Sea Pines Ocean Course on Day one Jonathan opened his account with 2 shanks from the first tee ! – I promise you he got better  

 

the stay in Hilton Head was complete by playing “Harbour Town” home of the RBC Heritage were Matt Kuchar managed to beat Luke Donald on the final green in April this year

On this occasion to protect Jonathan’s blushes I will not tell you the score , it was a victory for me !

 

He did take his revenge on the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island with a hard fought 2 & 1 victory – shaking hands on the iconic 17th Green (avoiding the Alligators on the way)

 

The Kiawah Island Ocean Course now tops my list as the best golfing experience I have ever had, just piping Sawgrass where Europe’s Martin Kymer secured the Players Championship earlier this month

Congratulations to him !

 

Give us a call for any golfing trip worldwide – lots going on in Spain & Portugal for 2014 and we can book tee times for Turkey 2015 !
