Nestling near the boundary between PO20 and PO21 the golf course is a predictably flat area that in some ways is as hard to navigate as a thick forest as both lack easily observable landmarks by which to orientate oneself.
It was encouraging to see that quite a crowd had managed to find their way down the winding road past the Pitch and Putt to the club house car park where the plus fours were noisily preparing for an exhausting morning of ball bashing.
All this under a uniformly grey sky, dry and with a temperature only just in double digits. Brightening our day were new hashers Caroline and Kaho (not connected) and a big welcome back for Two Ferrets (Joyce in case you forgot) whom we ain't seen in yonks.
Our esteemed hares had some warnings about slippery footbridges a beware of chariots and "Keep Off The Grass" before giving us no help at all as to where to tee off.

The small group that headed north east were unlucky to find a long falsie and have to suffer some playful jeering from a group of plus fours also waiting to tee off. The rest with Old Faithful leading the way found good flour between the poplars and out to Brimfast Cottage where they were suckered into taking a falsie west towards Sidlesham.
Flash found the trail to the east as we were treated to a long slog over the fields towards Bramber Farm and a pair of checks that stradled Bremere Rife which were nicely positioned to get the pack all together again.

Yours truly and Two Ferrets found the way north to a check at Fisher farm and then just by luck over to the Billy trail. There now followed one of those times when no one seems to be able to find a way out, with hashers wandering all over the place to no avail. This was fortunate for Bika who had forgotten about the bridge repairs at the bottom of the A3M (Doh!) and only just managed to catch us up, seeing us all wandering about on the horizon.
Eventually, Pancsi pointed Godiva in the direction of a few meagre blobs hidden at the bottom of a hedgerow and we were on our way north into South Mundham and right past Shureshot's gaff to a regroup where she admitted that she had seen the trail earlier that morning but didn't want to spoil the trail for the rest of us, so kind.

There now followed a series of checks all at the leafy lane junctions that took us west in a loop over to the footpath at the Fisher Barn and back on to the golf course and a check right by one of the ponds, which was given a wide berth by Splasher for obvious reasons.
It was not long before we found the On-In after one hour and nine minutes of rather gentle hashing.

At the circle there was due thankfulness to the team of hares and a mention for Two Ferrets who had NOT taken a short cut over one of the greens like the rest and Spiderman for lethargy. The Hash-it was presented to Canman for the dreadful transgression of asking a local if they had seen any flour.
Then, after a short wait for Pru and The Chamois who somehow had made a mess of their short cut back to the chariots we all congregated at the nineteenth hole where we cornered the market in beer and cheesy chips.
Fore!
Bambi.
