River Club Mashie

6th January 2007 - a new year and new courses to dig up - the Corporate Golfer wasted the River Club's Mashie Course (at risk of insulting your knowledge of golf, a mashie course is a miniature course consisting of par 3 holes). Regular readers may have noticed that the last two courses the Corporate Golfer have hacked up have both had the name River in it (previous was White River Golf Course) - watch out Rocky River Golf Club!

Golf fanatics are taken care of

To keep golf fanatics away during times of heavy rain, the course is set on the flood plains of the Liesbeeck River. With a stunning array of driving range facilities (upstairs, downstairs, synthetic grass, even real grass), the Corporate Golfer had a great warm-up session with his wedges. You don't need more than your wedges and a putter on the River Club's mashie course. The course is a 9-hole (they plan on expanding to an 18), with different angles into the same holes for the second 9.

Golfing moment of the day - "thank you God" chip - see photo below

Showing off time (if you've got it flaunt it!) - for only the second time in his life chipping in from off the green, the Corporate Golfer had a hallelujah chip-in for par at the hole in the picture below, from the golf bag on the right.
