Waitemata Golf course, Devonport Peninsula, North Shore City, Auckland




This hash isn't too far from my house. Will go home after work and pick up camera, compass and running gear (multi-task potential), and drive down to the golf course. Take a bearing of 270 degrees from the driveway of 32 Wairoa, and wander along this bearing until I reach the path shown in satellite image below.

Hoping there will be no fences to thwart this effort like on other occassions


Picked up camera and compass. Drove to destination, took bearing a followed it. There wasn't a fence around the golf course, instead there was a ditch where I almost got my new bright white running shoes dirty (catastrophe averted however). Ambled along the golf course to the intersection of the tracks, as seen in the google map. I aligned myself at the correct spot and took a photo of my shadow. Was around 16:30 so the shadow shows me to be much taller than I actually am. Hash achieved, and i didnt even seem to draw any unwanted attention from the golfers. No balls came my way either. Back to the car and off for a run to Mt Victoria and back, with token photo of Auckland taken from the top. Nice easy hash.
