A RATHER cold morning greeted the players last Sunday morning as well as damage to the 2nd and 3rd Fairways caused by idiots in cars driving on the Fairways on Saturday night. This is really upsetting as the members have spent time and energy getting the course in the best condition we have seen in a couple of years.
Any way enough of those mentally challenged who think this is a fun way to spend their time and back to today’s game. We had a three-way tie for first today but on countback the final winner was Michael Stanton who managed a credible 32 even after three putting the fourth, on for one and in for four.
He also managed to lose 2.7 off his handicap to top off his day. Second was Peter Macauley with 32 and losing 1.9 and third was Hoss Eberl losing 1.4. Three putts seemed to be the order of the day with the group I was in recording more three putts in one game than we normally see in a couple of months.
Michael also won the Combined Nearest the Pin on the 4th but not close enough to worry the Golden Circle which still stands at 1.17m.
Hoss also took out another prize with a win on the B-grade approach on the 1st and Peter McCauley also managed another with the Least Putts.
Marg Dennett won the Combined Nearest the Pin on the 6th and finally rounding out the prizes was Paul McCarragher with the B-grade Longest Drive.
Next week we tee off at 7.30am at Oakwood against the Lighthouse Social Gold Club. Please be there early so the cards can be filled in and breakfast taken before the game starts.
Have great week, keep safe and see you on Sunday.
