    Golf in the gully

    I love Blackheath Golf Course. I played there first probably in the 1980's and everytime I've been there it's a pleasure simply walking around the course. I've threatened many a time to leave my clubs in the vehicle and simply take my camera, especially in spring and autumn.
    It's a relatively short course with only three par 5's and it's not that easy to lose balls though on a few holes it wouldn't be too hard.
    Fees are reasonable and most days except weekends you can get on easily.

    Don't forget your water

    When you do the bushwalking mentioned throughout these pages it is advisable to keep two things in mind.

    Equipment: One is water. Ideally you should carry some with you as you do lose moisture, especially in summer, and you need to replace it.
    The other is comfortable shoes, mentioned elsewhere but worth repeating.
    It's also good to have maps, readily available from the National Parks and Wildlife centres, three key ones are at the Three Sisters, Conservation Hut (above Empress Falls) and at Blackheath above Grose Valley. Every year people get lost or are missing overnight, overdue, from walks in this area. You have been warned.
    The amazing thing is most of those lost have had some experience bushwalking.
