Introducing Gippsland Golf.com

G'day Blog Followers,
Over in the right hand column, under the 'Also...' category, you will find a new link to a web site devoted to the various golf courses in this corner of the land. As regular readers here will realise, I have a little to do with one golf course in particular and if you click on 'Heyfield' and further, 'On Course' and 'Major Events', you may recognise some images from old blog entries.
The approach to the first by 'leftie'.

I do enjoy the occasional game and the fellowship associated with it, but I particularly enjoy the environment. The Heyfield course is mostly carved from bushland and despite the best efforts of some slasher operators, (just had to slip that one in), a fair bit of the indigenous flora and fauna still remains between some of the fairways.

Ron chipping on at the fifth.

Bird species abound, provided they are not chased off by Noisy Miners. In a 'normal' spring, the variety of wildflowers is astounding for such a small area. Some of the trees are magnificent. At night I have recorded Sugar Gliders, Ring-tail and Brush-tail Possums, Tawny Frogmouths, Boobooks, and Barn Owls. I haven't found an Owlet Nightjar yet, but the first of a number of suitable roost boxes is already up, so I'm hopeful.

Oh, yeah, right, back to the golf. Anyway, if you're in the area and you enjoy a hit, you might find the link provided is of some use. If you do wish to visit, give me a yell - be happy to show you the course.

The daunting water hazard in front of the eighteenth.

Regards,
Gouldiae.

  2. Can't comment on the nature of the course but the surroundings are sure beautiful! The photo of the water hazard is especially nice.
