Your own backyard golf course

HOW is your short game going? Perhaps the problem is you are not getting enough quality practice.

The very logical answer could be to buy this five bedroom Gold Coast home that has its own nine hole “Hazzard Golf” style short game course.

From a look at the photos (obviously taken by a real estate agent and not a golfer – there’s too much house in them and not enough golf course) there are some seriously difficult holes here.

A few hours practice here a day and you will be able to get up and down from anywhere.

At my former residence I constructed my own short course golfing complex (actually just a closely mown area in the backyard with a hole at either end) and was worried my neighbours might look over the back fence and think I’d become (more) feeble minded.

I realise now I just wasn’t thinking on a grand enough scale. I definitely had room for another green and bunker complex.

The Gold coast home featured at the link below goes up for auction on February 18.

As well as the luxury house and golf course there is a championship style tennis court, wildlife pond and inground swimming pool with spa. (Perhaps you could let your grounds staff have a quick dip on very hot days.)
