King Island Golf & Bowling Club was a great bonus en route from Cape Wickham to the airport for the short hop back to Launceston.
It's maintained by volunteer members who clearly know their course - I played in the height of Summer with a drying Easterly so some seaside fairways were a bit bare, but all of the holes were tremendous fun with echoes of classic holes from GB&I.
Greens were excellent, but a couple embarrassed me badly with wind and contour - I quickly went from playing under handicap after 4 to hoping to staunch the flow of shots by the end.
Extremely friendly, interested staff and members, and reading the local paper the recent medal (back page headline !) was won with 2 under net by a 6 handicap player in stronger winds than those that I experienced - chapeau !
