Friends make a plan to play golf


By Jennifer Lumsden, March 5 2019

Recently, we went to Dingley village to play mini golf.

First, we got a train then we got the bus. We had a plan which we followed led by George and Michael. It was an easy journey.
When we got to mini golf, we paid and got our golf club, golf ball and scorecard. Michael wrote the scores down.
We played on the 19 hole golf course outside. It was fun. George hit his ball into the water and lost it! The water and the sand made it harder. We had to hit it hard to get over the water. Robbie got a hole in one!
In golf, it is the lowest score that wins. George won the game but everyone enjoyed themselves. There were pipes that took the balls from one area to another that looked cool.
We ate lunch in the seating area and headed back to RTI by walking to the bus stop getting the bus and the train.
The bus was confusing because there were two 811 buses going different ways. We asked the bus driver which one to get so we could go the right way.
