It’s been a year since I’ve played Bellville – ironic since it’s probably one of the closest golf courses to where I live. The course is a best to play in the summer – it gets a bit wet in the winter. The wind was quite strong today, which made the game rather challenging on this tree-lined course. One of the only down sides of this course, imo, is the uneven fairways. Even if you centre a drive, you could still be left with a tricky shot well above or below your feet. There are also plenty of doglegs and elevation differentials to keep the game interesting.
On to the pics:
The first hole is quite short and down hill. Well advised to take a hybrid off the tee
…but then turns sharply left downhill.
If you’re looking for a good test of golf for your skills in course management – look no further. I lost quite a few shots to bad decisions which will improve my game with lessons learnt for the long run.
