This week is the Lord Howe Island International Golf Open. 75 golfers have come from as far as Canada and Germany to play this five day tournament.
The competition is played under the same rules and format as the Australian Masters which is currently playing in Melbourne with two exceptions; the prizes on offer and no, Tiger Woods isn’t playing!
The current leader is 83 years young and he also won the competition two years ago. Many islanders have joined in and they all look forward to the friendly rivalry and especially to the bar being open in the afternoon!
The local policeman (yes we only have one) is playing, so luckily crime is not prevalent on LHI. It took the supply ship from the mainland a few days to unload its cargo as there was no one to unload it!
That’s Lord Howe Island and yes, it is paradise.
