Bunker blues

We have a roughly weekly work golf game that travels between the public courses in the Illawarra. With good coastal rains this late summer, the grass has been the best for a long time. Sadly one feature of the Illawarra courses always disappoints. Bunkers!

Sadly the sand is often the coarse local beach variety. The bunkers are undrained, so morning golf in winter means rock hard bottoms filled with dew… And the sand is not kept topped up. The number of times the club just bounces off the clay less than 1cm below the surface and I watch a bad miss-hit strike the face of the bunker…

It’s still better than sitting at a desk though.
