Being from the West i’m half-pissed we’re missing out on hosting and half-happy I don’t have to deal with the Barmy Army for a week.
Nice to see normal service resumed at the Gabba. Are you confident about snagging the 5th Test at Blundstone? I think they’ll go a day/night Test at the MCG just for the $'s. Don’t wana play the Poms in a small stadium with cold weather, would be like a home game for them
Also, I’m in Melbourne at the moment. My Dad told me not to bring my clubs because he had a right-hand set gifted to him by one of his late neighbours that I could use. Here they are in all their glory in a velour PGF Sunday bag.
Sorry, I just realised that this is the itinerary of your upcoming trip. I didn’t mean to take a dump on it. I’m sure you’ll have an incredible time - I thought you were suggesting a Roost event of that length with a bunch of internet strangers. Carry on.
Relatively new to NLU, definitely new to the nest! Excited to be here! Looking forward to talking some golf jive mixed in with some cricket over the summer AUSSIE AUSSIE and AFL in the winter!
Thanks for having me along 🏌️♂️
But I also strongly agree that 7 days would get very old. 2 nights is the perfect journey.
The people from the north island can land in Launceston/direct to Barnbougle in the early afternoon and get to the course in time for a Bougle Run (if inside of daylight savings) or time to get settled and have a good meal at either dining room / sports bar.
20 holes on Lost Farm Saturday morning lunch in the sports bar Bougle Run
18 at Barnbougle Sunday morning and head home
That schedule is full enough for the golf nuts and comfy enough for the enthusiasts.
Let’s be honest. There are no wrong answers to what a good Barnbougle itinerary could be.
I think we should have something resembling a competition (Roost rounds?) across Saturday and Sunday, with as many warm up / warm down rounds as desired for those that can make it for days before and after.
