13: THE PINES

originally sponsored by the ladies’ section of Coringa Country Club.
Pines lined both sides of the fairway and have become the home of territorial magpies, vicious at
certain times of the year. It was always wise to carry a club in your hand as you walked to the
green to fend off the ‘Dive bombers’! I can’t make out if Ted Day and Neil Penlington are thinking about their shot or discussing what should be done to the hole. A large willow tree to the left with bunkers to the left and right and a gully across the front of the green makes it that little bit more dangerous to attack. Around the trees and wild flowers to the left are the remains of another abandoned green. Behind the tractor you can see what, was the second green.
