Golf Report……….caddie makes suggestions

Well the next 5 holes in the NLC have proved testing for Allthego. The back nine starting  from Madura Pass and ending at Ceduna looked quite challenging to him, they are actually a 37 par. This report will cover the first 5 of these holes.

These 5 holes are also have some short ones, giving some hope for a good start. Brumby’s Run (Madura Pass) and Border Roo (Border Village) are par 3s. Watering Hole (Mundrabilla Roadhouse) and the Nullarbor Nymph (Eucla) are par 4s. Dingo’s Den at the Nullarbor Roadhouse is a par 5, a vicious 538 m into the prevailing westerly.

The caddie made some interesting observations and recommended to Allthego that he should focus on accuracy from the tee as opposed to distance. This advice was accepted in the spirit in which it was offered, it produced immediate benefits in the first 2 or 3 holes of the back 9. It was also aided by Allthego striving for and achieving some elevation from the tee as opposed to hugging the ground and bumping into saltbush.

At the Nullarbor Roadhouse the wind was true to form and was  blowing a gale, Allthego managed a 12 at Dingo’s Den in the harsh conditions.

The Nullarbor Nymph hole on the Eucla Golf Course also proved challenging with a 9 being recorded on the par 4. Allthego was constantly on the lookout for the Nullarbor Nymph and this proved his undoing it seems, as some shots went off into the scrub. No Nymph there. The Nymph though did finally appear holding the pin on the green.

Stylish start. Maybe this is why the Nullarbor Nymph didn't appear

Is this the Nullarbor Nymph? No kangaroo skins though.

So where does the score stand, these 5 holes on the back nine were done at 16 over par. Hmmmmmm. After a promising start the 12 at the par 5 Dingo’s Den was the killer. This makes us 49 over par for the 14 holes to date. To keep it sort of respectable a big finish will be required.
