Here is a picture of me playing golf (red cap) in Bang Poo, Samut Prakan, Thailand. The two ladies on the left are caddies.
Today I had to get up at 7am because I had an appointment. An appointment to play golf! Golf is my favourite sport. I’ve never enjoyed playing any sports more than golf. When I was in Australia, my school had a golf club inside the school! I find it very fastinating though it was quite difficult to play back then because of school and all. Also in the holidays, I usually went back and enjoyed golf in Thailand which I think is the best place to play. Why? I think Thailand has many beautiful golf courses and most of them are brilliant! Also the caddies are very friendly when here, it is all on your own.
However, this is the first time I’ve played golf in England. It is quite unusual to play at this time because it rains a lot. Today was the same story, it rained a lot but I do not know why, I still had fun. In addition, most people would start playing next week as we enter spring and go into daylight saving. Between next week and October is the best time to play golf in England as it is not so cold but could still be wet in some cases.
When I arrived at the golf course, I thought it was a park! The golf course I went to was actually inside Richmond park where they still hunt deer for the Queen. This is a festival which is carried out every year. So, when I started it was still raining heavily but it was alright as we started to see sunlight. The difference between playing golf here and Thailand is that there are no caddies so you have to do everything yourself. I wasn’t so frightened as it was the same when I used to study in Australia and you have to carry your own bag. However, it was strange at first because it has been almost 2 years since I carried my own bag. I went with some of people I know and there were 4 of us playing. The course was very clear as no-one was behind or in front of us. It took us about 4 hours to complete the round. After that we just went back. I really had a good time and I hope to go again next week as it gave me a really good experience. And also, the fee was very very cheap. It only cost me about 7.50 pounds to play which is considered very cheap.
I’m now finish for today and I need to hit the bed as I have to wake up early tomorrow. I’m going up to Warwick for 2 days to visit my cousin so I won’t be able to blog. But when I come back, I’ll probably talk about Birmingham as I might be going there the day after tomorrow. For now, bye.
