FFS, all THAT and no mention of the NTP markers in use at the course?

 

Probably wasn't in a club comp.

Update time .......  and a relaxed 18 today, again at Alice Springs.

 

Same wind conditions, so a lot of bunting into the wind, and pretty much the same score as the other day. (Just broke 80) 

 

With the Macdonnell Ranges running right beside the course, it is always going to be something of a wind tunnel.

 

The par 5's are good fun to play though, as they are easy 3 shot holes into the wind, and very gettable 2 shot holes down wind.

 

It was just a shame the wind wasn't in another direction, but the easterly seems to be the prevailing breeze up this way at this time of year.

 

I'm not sure when or where my next game will be at this stage. We set off southward tomorrow, and then turn right to Uluru (no course there yet), but we've got a few things planned over a couple of days at Uluru to make up for a lack of golf...... :)

Update time, and it was a very pleasant mornings golf today ........ at Royal n Ancient Broken Hill Country Club.

 

The course is set amongst the usual red rocky background, with lots of river gums bordering the fairways, including a couple in the middle of them. No roo's in sight today, but several Emu's were walking the course with us, which was great, so some nice pics were taken.

 

Started off with a couple of bogeys, as the greens were furry, bumpy, and took a bit of getting used to. Then it was several pars and a birdie on one of the par 5's .....(never met a par 5 I haven't loved). Made the turn at a few over, nice coffee in the clubhouse.

 

The back 9 continued on the par train for the most part, the final score another round in the high 70's. The driver was on song which makes life easy, and the greens whilst bumpy, rolled pretty well, and they were large so not many green misses.

 

No Sue Veneers post round though, as the pro shop was a bit lacking. You'd think they'd have some B.H. logoe'd polo's or at least ball markers, but not to be.

 

Not to worry, it was another fun day out on a course with The Beloved ....... :D
