Numbers were down on expected today, could be due to the reputation of the course or just there has been too much festive spirit flowing A small group of seventeen made the trip and were rewarded with a course in fine condition and excellent weather.
As the course was uncrowded play was at a good pace and the round completed within four hours. A new face took the honors today with Akira Sekiya scoring thirty-five points off a handicap of (12). Colin Greig took second a stroke back, Frank Quinlan also had thirty-four but was relegated to third on countback as was Les Humphrey to fourth also on countback.

Today’s round was a mix of inter-club competition and the Bunker Boys own .As a result the course was crowded, play was extremely slow and frustration levels were high. The four Bunker Boys who played in the inter-club competition were also part of the our own competition.
The winner of the A flight was Alan Sullivan who put together his best round for some time to record a score of forty points. Colin Greig again back to his best form came second with thirty-nine points and daylight to third where Michael Brett had a lowly thirty-two points.
In the B flight Ken Davidson showed sparkling form to record another forty points. Ken Ellmore was second on thirty-five points and Geoff Bracegirdle took third with thirty-four. Near pins went to Ian Rattray, John Walsh, and Stuart Brown. Akira Sekiya was denied a near pin by some clown who mischievously put his name on a flag even though he was not part of our competition, seems the etiquette of golf went missing in this instance.

Even with four of our members playing inter-club competition today we had a good roll up of twenty-three so two flights. As always Greenwood was in excellent condition, caddies were first class, but we were struck with the scourge of every golfers life (slow play). It took four hours forty five minutes to complete the round, way too long for most people. To make it worse there seemed to be no particular reason for such slow play.
Ian Rattray finally made it to the top today with an excellent round of thirty-seven. Second went to Phil Mashitar on thirty three, and Colin Greig third on count back.
In the B flight Les Humphrey in his last game of this tour took first with thirty-nine points, followed by Peter Allen on Thirty-four and Gerry Cooney in third on count back. In the near pins Colin Greig took two for the second time this week, and one each to Richard Baldotto and Michael Brett.
Ian Rattray, winner at Greenwood.
