Georgetown from Cross Hill

The dark brown mound in the centre of the picture is Fort Hayes.  To the left of it can be seen the red roof of the hospital, and beyond that Dead Man's Beach.  To the right is the sports field, flanked by the Exiles club (formerly the Marine barracks) and St Mary's church.  The white circular areas on the near edge of town are the 'greens' of the Georgetown nine-hole golf course.  It is this course, dating from the early 1900s, which is reputed to have received official recognition from the Royal and Ancient Golf club at St Andrew's as being the worst golf course in the world.  This accolade was awarded long before the newer One Boat course was built.  It can be seen that even in the mid 1990s the Mexican Thorn Bush was beginning to flourish.
