Usual start to our day with buffet breakfast. Weather started off very very humid and overcast. Showers were forecast but again we were very lucky and no rain came. It certainly came over very dark for a while and the wind came up, humidity disappeared completely and temperature dropped. Can't believe we have been so lucky with the weather, it only rained for 20 mins on our first day in Macau and has been fine since :-)
Tee time of 10:36 on the Greg Norman course. We had been told by many people that it was the hardest course here and they were right!!

Great fun though, really enjoyed the course, very different from all the others. For Sean and I that was 10 courses played this fortnight and for Mike it was 6 this week, so I think we all did well just to survive. My poor old knees are protesting now though!!

Got a car to go to Guanlan for dinner. It was about 20 mins from Dongguan Resort. Nice driver this time, we got him to stop at a group of golf shops on the way, didn't buy anything, would have been good to go there and have a good look around earlier in the week.
The customer service rep at Mission Hills recommended a restaurant for us- Hong Fu Luo Seafood Restaurant - very funny trying to get them to understand our English, I even resorted to animal impressions for chicken and cow which they found hilarious. We saw them later demonstrating my actions to other staff. Whole meal only $40 Aus including 2 large beers for the boys. Best Peking Duck I have ever had - yum!
Wandered around the shops for a while after. Mike bought another 2 golf shirts, he has by far been the best shopper so far :-)
Caught a taxi back to the resort, still driving fast but nothing like the terrifying journey back from Shenzhen earlier in the week. I can completely understand now why Chinese drivers in Australia have so much trouble!!

Looking forward to Coke Light tomorrow back in HK and then more shopping before the trip home tomorrow night.
