Golf in the Olympic Games

The day has almost arrived where the sport returns. After over 100 years of being absent, golf returns to the Olympic Games tomorrow. Question is will anyone be watching?

Irabina Autism Services Charity Day

I don't usually help promote organisations on the blog, but quite happy in this case since it is for charity. It is also a golf day at Australia's number one course, Royal Melbourne Golf Club. Irabina Autism Services help support people or families living with Autism.
Ball resting in the bunker

The Bunker

For a lot of casual golfers, walking up and finding the golf ball in the bunker, is enough to make them curl up in a fetal position and want to cry for their parents. It is one of the necessary evils to the game of golf.

RECENT TOP 100 COURSES PLAYED

The 6th tee at Sanctuary Lakes Golf Club

Sanctuary Lakes Club

Heading west of Melbourne for the first time to play golf, and won't be the last, I arrived at Sanctuary Lakes Club. The course had quite a bit of water in play along some very nice holes.
The 9th hole at Araluen Golf Resort

Araluen Golf Resort

Aiming to complete all the Western Australian courses in one last trip, it was straight to Araluen Golf Resort after an early morning flight from Melbourne. I was hitting the course after a cold snap had hit the west coast so it was extremely nippy.
The 10th tee at Moonah Links Legends Course

Moonah Links Legends Course

After reading some good reviews about the Moonah Links Legends Course, Melbourne compatriot James and I went south to the Mornington Peninsula to check it out.
The 16th tee at RACV Royal Pines Resort

RACV Royal Pines Resort Aroona Binnowee

Having played the old RACV Royal Pines Resort layout in 2013, I was looking forward to seeing the latest changes to bring this course back into the Top 100 Golf list for myself.
The 19th hole at The Grand Golf Club

The Grand Golf Club

Coming across an open day at The Grand Golf Club being held, was my easy ticket to play at this Top 100 Golf course. This was one of my difficult three, which was proving problematic to gain access.
The 18th green at Spring Valley Golf Club

Spring Valley Golf Club

An opportunity arose via a social golf day to play at another Top 100 Golf Course, Spring Valley Golf Club. Although not a part of the official Melbourne Sandbelt club, it certainly had all the right characteristics for the area.
