Very occasionally I accompany a friend to the course on the island to do "the real thing".
The "First Hole".
D. getting ready for the "drive".
In the brochure it says: the "Forth Hole" is a short par 4. Ha!
What a stretch to cover, untrained as I am!
140 yards (128 m). It seemed endless to me.
I got only close to the "narrow" part.
It is said that this is "a very short "par 3". Well, I needed 5 shots to "sink the ball" and I thought that was not too bad at all.
And then it showed that I am not a "real golfer". I got distracted by this view in the woods! Purple trillium! They are native in Canada but protected because they are so rare.
I just hope the Golf Course owners/users are aware of that !
If you would be tempted to pick one piece think twice.
First: it is an endangered plant and you should just look and not touch.
Second: losing a part will stress the whole plant so much that it will actually die. Wouldn't that be awful!
We walked for about 3 hours. Good exercise and we had lots of fun. What a wonderful morning we had.
But after 9 holes I was shot and ready for lunch!
When I was a little girl, we had a lot of white trilliums on the farm. We called them Easter lillysReplyDelete
What a beautiful view from the golf course. We're kinda self-made and not good at it either. I have had golf lessons but in my case, it didn't help much.ReplyDelete
Have not golfed for many years, as a matter of fact I gave my golf clubs to my grandson. It can be a fun time and good exercise.ReplyDelete
I didn't realise there was such a thing as a purple trillium. We have the white ones in Ontario, which is the provincial flower.ReplyDelete
Also didn't know there was a golf course on the island.
