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.

With quite a bit of drama occurring with rules infractions of both the men's and women's US Open Championships, it seems a good time to have a look at the rules of golf and a bit of history.

Playing By The Rules

I read an article in the paper the other day, which in the end was all about playing by the rules. This made me reminisce about all the instances I had come across where there was some sort of infraction.

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.
The 4th green at Riverside Oaks Golf Resort Bungool Course

Riverside Oaks Golf Resort Bungool Course

Heading out to the wild west, to play a new entry into the Top 100 Golf list, was the fairly new Bungool course at Riverside Oaks Golf Resort. Completed in 2014, this made history becoming Sydney's first 36 hole club.
The 5th tee at Brookwater Golf & Country Club

Brookwater Golf & Country Club

The journey was made north to tackle a Top 100 Golf course voted numerous times to be the best in Queensland. A trip through some great natural beauty has been created by Greg Norman and Bob Harrison.
