|Approach to short par four 5th - one of the best fairways anywhere|
hang out (sorry).
Standing on the 3rd tee, on a perfect sunny day with the temperatures above 20 degrees, nude sunbathers were a very possible and unwelcome hazard to be considered. It was no surprise when I carved my drive into those very dunes; it was a pleasant surprise when I retrieved my ball with no nudity involved.

And The Island couldn't have been in better condition. It was absolutely perfect. If you want to see the sort of work that goes into a course, follow the tweets of the club's superintendent, Dave Edmondson.

That should keep my golf bag full for a while – to the point that the next time I slice a ball up into those dunes on the 3rd, I won’t even go looking. Who knows what other balls I might find.
