Introducing Caddie Magazine Volume Five – The Sandbelt Edition
Featuring cover artwork by David Baysden
It’s a triangle, a corridor, a belt, a region, a destination, and an icon. Few, if any, in the golfing world have come far into the game without overhearing at least one vaunted spiel about Melbourne’s infamous Sandbelt. In Volume Five, we look at the region from all angles: from high in the sky to below ground, and everything in between. We go deep on eight courses with course architect and Sandbelt local Mike Cocking; we play the across the region in a single day with Matthew Mollica and Luke Eipper; visualise the layouts with Lie + Loft; learn of it’s geology with John Carswell; and discuss the rugged Sandbelt aesthetic with local caddie and golfer Nicklaus Mills. All tied to together with Caddie’s renowned photography, commissioned artwork by David Baysden and our own takes on the golfing jewell of our hometown.
Sandbelt aside, we continue to bring you the very best stories from the global golfing landscape.
Legendary course architect Tom Doak travels to India and Sri Lanka in a whirlwind trip to discover the best the subcontinent has to offer (his exclusive report is not to be missed). We travel to frontier Oregon, USA, on the promise of meeting some goat caddies (!) and find so much more at Silvies Valley Ranch. Mark Horyna goes deep in the sand in his inimitable style in The Good, The Bad and The Bunkers.
Volume Five brings 134 pages of full-colour, spacious, luscious, crafted, golf. It lifts any room you place it in – the cover is literally a work of art – and is the ideal travelling companion. Give your eyes a rest from endless screen time and indulge in the beauty of the printed page; hear the snap of the cover; smell the ink as you thumb through the luscious paper pages – if you can’t tell, we’re pretty passionate about print; it’s the only way to read. Oh, and Caddie Magazine also makes a thoughtful gift – just as well given the time of year.
It’s that walk down the first fairway
Just us vs. the golf course, vs. the elements, vs. ourselves
Exploring a new place: its contours and views, its wildlife and deceptions
The chance to chat with friends, away from the distractions and pressures
The courtesies, encouragements, & laughter at struggles with a game so hard to master, yet so fun to try
The release of a perfectly hit drive; that rare shot where it all just comes together
The long putt that snakes its way to the hole and then disappears
A cold drink in the shade overlooking the 18th
That’s where you’ll find Caddie Magazine.
