As I travel, I find golf courses becoming progressively better. Unfortunately I did not have clubs with me, however I am thinking a Golfing TRIO now!
Corrigin Golf Club will cost a little more than Kondinin Golf Club but rightfully so. Besides having a hole on the green, this course actually has flags! Wahoooooo! It will cost $5.00 for 18 holes! Well worth the experience!
Another feature this course has is a practice fairway. I think I have just found the new Long Drive Championship course. With the practice fairway extending past 300 meters means that a quick bush clear out at the bottom end can accommodate the BIG hitters.
Of course….I can see ego coming into the picture with a little more run than usual. Hopefully in the right direction! [LOL]
The tees are made from artificial turf. The fairways are about the same as Kulin, but I think these are cut a little shorter. The greens seems to be made of oil sand or black sand, but this time they have a scraper by the green so that you can smooth out the surface after you finish the hole.
Outside of this, the rules are pretty tough. I thought the course by itself would be a challenge. However, one can receive a 2 shot penalty if you hole a ball of edge of scraper mark. I not entirely sure what this all means but I can only guess that if you run a groove through the hole and then putt and hole out…then you receive the penalty
Of course, one can clean the ball only on the same fairway. This is pretty interesting because if you hit a great shot and it hits a rock to be deflected to another fairway – you are out of luck.
However…you can place the ball. So it is all good…only if that ball is on the same fairway and green of the hole you are playing. Phew – these guys are tough….!
Tips for playing this course:
- I would say – second hand clubs come into the picture?
- Water, Suncreen, and Hat
- Aim for the center of the hole when putting.
- Watch out for snakes. Apparently you play at your own risk! LOL
- Technically I would take a wood, an iron and a putter with some balls. I guess that helps me have a quick getaway in case I see a few brown things moving in the grass! 😉
