A Mental Few Hours!

I will try and get around to another report at some point, but I wanted to get these thoughts/memories down before they became a little too hard to dredge from my memory with any accuracy. TBH, what follows may or may not be accurate. All will become clear; or fuzzy LOL. An uneventful journey from t...

A very enjoyable read viking, many thanks.

You mentioned CS Erste Hulp on Marnixstraat - which end of the straat is it located.......Leidseplein end or up by Haarlemmerplein?
What is the best way to reach it? Marnixstraat looks very long! LOL

Thanks again!!

I would say that golf does require athleticism. Or maybe the modern game does? Look at the top golfers that have emerged over the past few years.......I think it all started with Tiger. These guys are hitting the gym to keep in shape, develop strength and maintain flexibility. It is rare to see the ...

Thanks for the response NY, NY. You are right about the very top courses and the greens they produce. Good luck with your plans for Scotland/Ireland......I've played in both countries and there are some absolute gems in either. Let me know if you need some course reviews and I'll gladly send you a b...

Hey there Libido - thanks for sharing what sounded like a hectic trip. Sorry to hear you didn't have such a good time with your friends, but I'm glad it seems not to have put you off returning to certainly my favourite city. I'm from the UK too, and much as I love my country and love to enjoy myself...

Nice report shlo, I enjoyed that.

I did not enjoy the remark above however. If something has been lost in translation then forgive me; if not, then that is a shameful remark on a public board.
