Day 9 - Nullarbor Roadhouse to Madura - 373kms.
It was a cool night, I used both my blankets before dawn. Woke to a cool and overcast with some patched of drizzle. The wind was up and
starting to blow. We pack up camp and just before leaving I played my 3rd hole which was the 5th hole of the Nullarbor Links, to date I
have not played 2 holes due to the gale force conditions. See below for in depth description on the Dingo's Den Par 5 538 meters.
After the golf we departed about 9:14am, thanks Harry Hema for being so accurate.
The following is today's hole by hole description of how I tamed the world famous Nullarbor Links Golf Course(s).
After the 3 holes that I have played, I am 36 or 22 over par. Not bad for a hack.
Apart from the golf today, or lack there of, we did stop along the Great Australia Bight and took photos of the dunes and the Bunda Cliffs, they truly are beautiful.
We did cross the SA/WA border and was checked at the Quarantine station, the lady checked the van's fridge/Freezer and cupboards and the fridge in the car. All passed.
The traffic was extremely light, we stop at each roadhouse and top up with fuel, I will give you a summary of all our Nullarbor fuel stops when we rest at Norseman.
The wind today was about 20kph Southerly maybe a little more, some of the photos will show Marg's hair being blown everywhere.
Tomorrow, we have lost Internet reception, and head on to Cocklebiddy-Hole 10, Caiguna-Hole 11, Balladonia Hole 12 probably stay at Balladonia.
Monday play Fraser Range-Hole 13 on the way to Norseman, where we are staying for 3 nights.
