It’s not exactly Pebble Beach but Kevin Green is making do with his front yard.

A PLUMBER by trade and a teacher by design, Kevin Green of Inverloch is nothing if not resourceful.

And he wasn’t letting the ‘stay-at-home’ and ‘social distancing’ rules of the COVID-19 pandemic get him down over the Easter break.

As well as completing a list of jobs around the house, he got his exercise too, with a bucket of golf balls out the front of his Powlett Street home, where there’s a nice, long yard.

“I’ve got a golf cart in the shed at the Wonthaggi Golf Course and I tend to go in there on my own for a game when I feel like it but I wouldn’t have had a hit for four weeks.

“I’m not playing that well these days, back to 27 where I started but I did get down to eight at one stage. That would be 30 years ago.

Originally from Brunswick West, he built a house at East Keilor with his wife Beverley but in the 1970s he decided to do a teaching qualification and ended up at the Leongatha Technical School, under Irving Stephens, prior to teaching at the Wonthaggi High School which he did for 20-plus years.

“We’ve been at Inverloch now for 50 years,” said Kevin.
