You could almost hear the rattle of golf stick chatter as the cavalcade of caravans edged their way along Woodbine Road and into Port Fairy on Boxing Day.
In the nearly three weeks since Christmas lunch, the Port Fairy Golf Club has hosted 1020 competition players during the traditional holiday period alone.
That's a lot of golf and it's refreshing to see the new faces and frequent visitors among the hustle and bustle of the regular hoi polloi of loyal members basking in, and often times lamenting, their round just played.
Of the thousands of shots hit in both good spirit and in anger, one particular strike has meant more than most during each competition round played.
The mystical Superpin on the eighth hole is a lucrative prospect at this time of year.
Many believe it to be a myth or ancient golfing folklore. A shot for dragon hunters or unicorn trainers only.
The reality is that if you get it closest to the hole on the par three, eighth green you can walk away with a fistful of dollars as reward for your laser-like accuracy.
You only have to ask pro shop employee of the month Stephen Chapman, who banked a princely $186 for his single stoke on Saturday January 4.
Not a bad return for approximately 1.09 seconds worth of effort expended.
Leo Carey, Keith Pincombe and Rodney Dunstone are also living proof that it doesn't necessarily have to be an entirely great day on the links to be a great day on the links.
Saturday and Sunday January 24 and 25 marks the return of the Moyneyana Open at Port Fairy Golf Club.

Just $20 entry per day includes a sausage sizzle barbecue lunch with plenty of great prizes up for grabs.
