Umdoni Park, Natal South Coast,
On forest birding stroll –
The strangest birds this place can boast
Hit balls towards that pole!
A whole in ‘won’ is offered here,
For golfers to enjoy,
But drive your ball too far, I fear
Your caddie needs a buoy
To help retrieve the wretched thing:
The water-hazard there
Does tend to be quite interest-ting –
Conducive to despair –
In front of it, I must point out,
A sand-trap’s to be found
Far worse than bunkers all about –
Sun-bathers there abound!
Perhaps you should give up the game
Of which you are so fond;
Scratch off, from playing lists, your name,
And paddle in that pond!
