Roundel Glen

Spiros might have been wearing his game face yesterday at Roundel Glen, but it wasn't enough to prevent me from beating the boys three and two.  Despite the second loss in a row, Spiros indicates that they will not be asking for strokes.

It was a fun day on a very good course that was unfortunately also very wet, forcing us to walk for the second day in a row.  If we keep this up, we'll soon be fit as fiddles.

This early in the year the usually-quick greens were pretty slow and still quite bumpy from being aerated at the end of last season.  But Roundel Glen, formerly the Canadian Forces Base Trenton course, is a great old design with lots of mature trees, sharp doglegs, and some beastly long par fours--at least for old fat guys like us.  It's definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
