Teachers Golf Day @ The Vines

A great tradition here in South Australia is the Teachers Golf Days held at the end of each term. I played again today at the challenging but very enjoyable course at the Vines, Happy Valley in the southern suburbs of Adelaide. The course was very dry and the dam alongside the 2nd hole was totally empty. (See pic below.) These competitions have a fair bit of history dating back to pre World War II, and I even managed to get my name on the B Grade trophy back in 2002. Today my game wasn't so sharp but it was good to play with a few mates and enjoy a schnitzel and roast vegies lunch afterwards in the clubhouse. The organisers even had an official beer (as a non-drinker, they are now cooling in the fridge waiting for my next beer drinking guest) that you can see in the pics below. Sort of sets the scene for non-school relaxation but I dare say I'll be blogging about something before too long.
