This morning my friend Andrew had organised for us to play golf at Northbridge Golf Club, a new course for me. The course is nestled on a steep slope leading down from a ridge to water level, and there’s a lot of down and up walking to get around the course.
And it has what Andrew tells me is the most famous golf hole in Sydney, the par 3 5th hole:
That’s the view from the tee, down to the green. It’s pretty amazing. I hit my ball a little short, but not too badly, and managed to get a bogey with 4 strokes. Andrew scored par.
We started the round of 18 at 7:30, and finished at 11:00, so it took a fair time – longer than I expected. I spent most of the rest of the day just resting – and doing some stretches for my tired muscles. I didn’t realise just how physical a sport golf is!
