/ High altitude golf

Michael Hood - on 17 May 2017
So, I was walking in the Lakes today, doing some more Wainwrights but because of the weather sticking to the lower ones north of the Whinlatter Pass.

So I'm on top of Graystones, walking between the various summits at approx. 450m altitude, when I come across a golf ball in ok condition!!!

If it's yours then describe it and I might get it back to you

I think it's mine - I lost it on a course in the Midlands. I have a bad slice.

On the way from leh to nubra had a very convivial evening drinking beer with a couple of army officers who invited us for a round of golf . it never happened and I've never played anyway , but it would have been a great tick. and much as I deride the game it would probably have been better than sitting in a mess tent watching it rain.

No tooth marks which makes that less likely.

I use golf balls for navigation exercises for my MRT. I sprinkle them out, give the guys a grid ref for each one and they have to go and retrieve them; includes an element of search practice too
