I recently was invited to experience a joy I’ve not been able to do in over 2 years. When packing up to leave the US one of the things that didn’t make the list to ship to Cameroon were the golf clubs. But I was able to go the only course in Yaoundé last week; there are only 4 in the entire country.

The course is on Mount Febe and extremely hilly, there were no golf carts, thankfully we had a caddie. At first we said we didn’t need a caddie but the man asked us if we had been there before and we said no so he informed us we would get lost without a caddie, he was right. We also had a kid, maybe 12 years old, that followed us around and would go and stand about where our drives should land and he was the spotter for our balls, in addition to retrieving the balls that we hit out-of-bounds. I’m not sure what his official job title is but he allowed us to finish the round with close to the same number we started with.

Someone that took a real camera to the golf course, or has a much better cell phone then I do. The building in the background is the US Embassy.

    You’re one up on me. I never had a caddie. Looks like a very hilly course. Gladd you had a good time.
