Right on the fairway of hole 12 at Ladera Golf Course on the west side of Albuquerque.
Today is my birthday, and I have off work. Of course I'm gonna try for the hash! And look, it's a) close and b) on a golf course. Cool!
Got in a long run this morning, then ran some errands before heading down to attempt the hash. I wasn't quite sure what tack I would take to try to get access to the golf course, but it turns out that I didn't need to worry much. I walked right onto the course. I also wasn't sure how I was going to get a golf ball to drop onto the green, but as I was walking in to the course, I ran into a friend just finishing up a round of golf. Cool! I borrowed one of his balls for the occasion and went on with my geohashing. I followed the dirt track by the fence to skirt around the course to the 12th hole. A group was just teeing up as I approached, so I discreetly followed them down the hole until they'd moved on to their third shot. I saw another group teeing up so I knew I didn't have a whole lot of time, but I wandered onto the fairway with my GPS and camera out to get my shots. Mission accomplished, I backtracked to the clubhouse and parking lot before heading on with the rest of my day. Yay!
Accidentally erased the GPS track. :-(( I walked about 1.3 mi total.
