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.
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.
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.
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.
