Golf Report

It’s time for a golf report. Allthego has played 5 holes on the Nullarbor Golf Links course which stretches from Kalgoorlie to Ceduna. It’s thought to be and claims to be the longest course in the world. Well it starts off with 2 par 5s and 3 par 4s, just to get you in the swing. The first 2 holes are at the Kalgoorlie Golf, a par 4 (356 m) and then a par 5 (502 m). The 3rd hold is at Kambalda, half way down to Norseman. It’s a par 4 (392 m). The next two holes are at Norseman a par 5 (463 m) and a par 4 (385 m). Norseman is a nice country golf club, nice fairways fringed with red sand and gravel.  Kambalda is a bit rugged, sand tees and oiled sand greens, the rough is tough but easy if you miss the small thick shrubs. Norseman has wide open fairways under trees with artificial grass tees and greens. That’s the setting.

Well, Allthego is 20 over par after 5 holes. A disastrous 12 at the par 4 in Kambalda responsible for a lot of the damage. Lodged in a shrub in the rough and then 4 putted on the oily green.

It’s been a pleasant walk around so far. Homealone has ably assisted as caddie. The long par 4s and 5s are a bit of a struggle with a 3 iron. Allthego only brought 3 clubs on the trip; a 3, a 6,and a putter.

At this stage Allthego is performing as a mere shadow of his former self (which wasn’t that much anyway!) and looks forward  with trepidation to the remaining holes across the Nullarbor in 2 weeks time.
