2 buses awaited the 20 players eagerly anticipating the Growling Swan’s visit to the popular Greenwood GC.
On the buses, banter was somewhat subdued as the traffic snarls on the 331 extended our trip to Greenwood in excess of 1 hour. At last month’s visit to ...
Stan Rees confirms his good shape at Greenwood
Tuesday we drove down the 331 to Greenwood. It is always a pleasure to play here. The course was in good shape, but some of the greens suffered on a disease and made putting difficult. It was a nice day, a little bit cloudy and not to hot. We enjoyed the game. We had good ...
