Month: April 2008

Way back in the fourth century or thereabouts, St. Augustine had been struggling many years with the concept of time, when he wrote the following:

"What is time? If no one asks me, then I know. But if someone questions me about it and I try to explain it, then I no longer know."

My first round of golf while back home was just next door at the Laguna Seca Golf Ranch. What a fantastic course it is and quite challenging to say the least. I played with Kevin and Mike who were a couple of nice guys, just as much addicted to golf as me (if that's possible).

By the way, in case you were interested "laguna seca" is Spanish for "dry lake."

There was alot of wind and the greens were really fast, making three or even four putts a higher risk. In fact, although the greens were in perfect shape, sometimes I felt like I was putting on a pool table slanted slightly at 15 degrees. The ball just never stops rolling, rolling, rolling.

Laguna Seca Golf Ranch.

Because it rains an awful lot in Holland, the golf courses tend to be really wet, sometimes even soaked to the rim.

Even if I hit a fantastic tee shot right down the middle of the fairway, the ball plugs into the ground and doesn't roll at all.

The ironic thing is that if I hit the green right next to the flag, the ball does bounce further, sometimes even off the back of the green.

Frustrating to say the least.
