    Default March 4th (Thursday) The Dunes Port Hughes

    The Minister is using our S.A Travel Voucher for a couple of days get away at the beginning of March down at Port Hughes (found it very hard to find a regional place that would accept it that was available).
    I'm intending to have a hit at Port Hughes on Thursday the 4th so thought a throw out a long shot if anyone has the day off and doesn't mid a drive out into the country they are welcome to join me.
    I haven't locked myself into a time so I'll be able to fit in with anyone that may be able to make it.

    And yes the Minister is well away that I'm having a round. She actually asked where are the places we could go that I could have a game at?

    you will have a great day. I played there on Saturday and it exceeded all expectations.

    ”Grange East with width and undulation”.
    pure Santa Anna fairways and rough to resort width.
    pure bent greens, not too fast (worth slope and wind).
    shell grit bunkers which don’t blow out despite the wind. Some of the liners are starting to appear.

    play a mix of tees - perhaps black odds and gold evens . It is black flags out and red flags in. If you want a shorter course, do gold and silver tees.

    note the pro shop/bar/barista/ cafe/ toilets are 500 metres from the 1st tee, so give yourself an extra 15 minutes to find it, then walk to the first. Carts and buggies are available. Saturday was $44 on line. Good value.

    I carried with 9 clubs.

    I've played it twice before. I'm interested to see how its regressing or hopefully progressing. Played in an Open there one of those games and they were some of the smoothest Greens I have ever putted on and sneaky lighting quick. Back then they were rolling the Greens after every time they cut them. I saw what they were rolling them with and it was a heavier machine than what were were using at Kapunda at the time.

    I use hole 19 as an app for my apple watch.
    I used it at the start of each hole on the phone app to see where the hole went, and where bunkers were, and carry distance.
    It worked really well.
    There are a few semi-blind shots in the opening holes, and the line you think could be 30 metres out!

    Love to get there with you but only pencil. Picked up a couple of big school projects today.

    Take me off the pencil list. Too much to do. 3rd school has hit the books.
