We live in the country in a small town/village/hamlet and the nearest driving range is 75 kms away. Not easy to pop around for a spare hour or so.
So golf practice is against a plastic net material strung up in a stall of the old stables.
This particular session was devoted to where the divots are created. I have noticed that I more often than not do not create a divot at all and here I am trying deliberately to make a divot after hitting the ball. This is what the pros always say “Hit the ground after the ball”.
I must reveal that hardly any players in the local club do not take a divot at all including me.
I probably should have paid more attention to nearby animals and humans than to divots!
A few days ago I visited the Gold Coast and Brisbane in Queensland, the Sunshine State. Well it was sunny alright in Autumn. A bit hot for me actually.
The state of the course was excellent and Trevor reports on the competition between the many courses resulting in very reasonable green fees for visitors.
However it was the latest golf carts that impressed me most. No need for a GPS finder because it shows distance to the green. It actually stopped when we got too close to the green. You needed to reverse out of the restricted area!
