In the wheel of a Land Rover, the goal was to negotiate off-road Scottish terrain… while blindfolded.
That was the situation confronted by the Bronte Law of England, who had been determined by passengers to guide her through the undertaking.
Those back-seat drivers in August were European team-mates and, a month , they face a challenge of a type that is very different – .
As Law attempts to make her debut at the game, which will attract over 80,000 spectators, she represented her last visit to famed hotel Gleneagles – when she had been named as a wildcard at Catriona Matthew’s European group.
The captain used the chance to bring the line-up that will face the US along, with Law’s English compatriot Jodi Ewart-Shadoff the absentee because she recovered from surgery.
And while some of the period was used to familiarise the players at Gleneagles that stages the competition which starts on Friday, the priest used the opportunity for a mid-afternoon workout.
“We travelled Land Rovers driving off-road in the center of nowhere,” Law told BBC Sport.
“It entailed being spanked and also the team-mates in the back had to direct us. You can imagine that is one way you get trust in your team-mates.
“I’d Caroline Masson and Carlotta Ciganda guiding me – two quite seasoned Solheim Cuppers. They did a better job than that I did , of directing me! So I know I could fall back on them for sure.”
Legislation insists the exercises went a very long way to cementing the bond that will be vital if Europe are from winning the cup for the third time to prevent America.
“Everyone got along very well. It really gave us an insight to the characters we have on the team,” she explained.
“It is crucial that the camaraderie is there and that I certainly think that experience helped supply that before we arrive at Gleneagles.”
The 24-year-old from Stockport might be a newcomer but as the second-highest rated European, the world number 26 has the potential to become a cog in the European wheel.
She needed a wildcard selection because she has not had time in her career to adapt automatically.
However, like Charley Hull and her English team-mates Georgia Hall, Law is a winner on the LPGA Tour having triumphed in May in Virginia.
The captain gave nod to that she would be chosen well ahead of the official announcement of last month.
What’s more, Legislation possesses a record in group matchplay, in the competition between the top amateurs of GB&I, 2016 getting the Great Britain and Ireland player to win all five matches at the Curtis Cup and their counterparts.
“I really enjoy playing matchplay and playing excellent golf going to this game is something I am very excited about,” said Law.
“I only hope I will repeat what I’ve done in preceding matchplay events”
When asked if she’s relishing the prospect of being among the group leaders despite her lack of Solheim Cup experience, Legislation quickly answers”yes, certainly”.
“It’s my obligation to reveal the form I have during the year. Even although I’m a rookie, it doesn’t actually mean anything,” she adds.
“I have to go out there and get my things. Being rated on the team, that duty is carried by me – and I need to play well for my team-mates.
“Clearly playing with Curtis Cups and representing England at the International Crown is going to allow me to undergo the encounter.”
Legislation is one of 3 first-timers from the European line-up, Together with the Dutchwoman Anne van Dam along with France’s Celine Boutier.
It looks a contest, with Juli Inkster’s US side judged small favourites.
“They are all really good golfers and on their day some of them are capable of winning, so that there won’t be any easy matches,” Law said.
“They have players in the world rankings, the likes of Lexi (Thompson), Jessica and Nelly (Korda) and Danielle (Kang) but, ultimately, I tell myself I have beaten all those girls.
The US may be searching for a hat-trick of successes, but the team hoping to achieve the feat is one in transition.
There are just five rookies – Brittany Altomare, Meghan Kang, Marina Alex, Nelly Korda along with Annie Park – and three more players competing in their first away contest, namely Jessica Korda Angel Yin and Kang.
Dealing with all the Solheim atmosphere will probably be critical with a grandstand to get 2,500 people enclosing the first tee.
It’ll not be any surprise if the Law copes better than many – despite it being her first time.
“I’ll go out there and battle until the very end to receive my stage,” she said.
Piloting a Land Rover is 1 thing but this week, outfitted with a full complement of senses to carry out a kind of driving, so she looks more than ready for the task ahead.
The Solheim Cup is part of BBC Sport’s Change The Game effort. #ChangeTheGame in BBC Sport sees a summertime packed full of women’s athletic action along with complementary programming over on the internet, radio and TV.
