Hole with a view (Image : Chris Breebaart 2021)

Golf can be a treacherous game

walking out miles from the safety

of the cosy clubhouse

to the first tee

journey rugged to a deceptive beauty

ball carefully placed on the tee

club measured for the perfect weight of shot

but golfer beware

for out on the windy cliff

you may find your golf shoes

changed for wellington boots

depending on where the ball lands

Slope

The golf pro landed the ball

downhill

all seemed well

that was until

aided by the grass or on its own

perhaps by wind it was blown

down the slope , and into a trap

into the sand, in a moments snap

the ball was rescued by his sand wedge

only to find its self back on the ledge

and on this slightly windy day

he watched, as his ball down the hill, rolled away
