LOL - His full nickname is Billy Goat Gruff as he can get a little narky at times. 

 

Hi bark is worse than his bite - an absolute institution around Sunshine.

One day I was there with a couple other members and I think some social members in front who were a little slow. On his way through he checked in with us on his way past. One of the members said to Billy just be careful and he whipped out the knife and said ill be fine.

Absolutely pissed myself laughing.

Lucky he didn't catch the urinaters, he might have used his machete.

Went ahead and joined at Sunshine during the week. Having a hit on Saturday so looking forward to it. In the end what I liked most was that it was a short car trip (20 mins), it has a driving range, course is a good length with plenty of room and a range of varying holes.

I'd been asked in the past whether I'd  ever had problems with magpies at Sunshine. The answer was "No" and I didn't even know what the bloke was talking about. They'd never bothered me at all.

 

Played there today, On the third hole I got swooped SEVEN times. I was playing with Mr Peanut and he was left completely alone. I was wearing my lucky red hat. The last time I wear that bloody thing!

 

Never touched me but it was coming that that close the snap of it's wings sounded like a whipcrack.

 

If you are familiar with the 3rd hole it only came near me once I got through the gap in the stone wall where the hole doglegs.
