Tropical Golf 06/01
Treasure Hill – St
Brian and Top Cat Tops at Treasure Hill!
Ready. Set. Golf! So another year and numerous contests start. If 2017 is half as good for the PSC Tropical Golfers, it will be a good year indeed! Can we possibly have more fun than the previous year? Why not? This first Friday of the New Year saw the Tropical’s at one of our favorite courses – Treasure Hill. Twenty nine players made it a good turnout, and BJ’s Lodge was crowded and noisy with people getting their fill.
We like playing at Treasure Hill, because… what’s not to like? The layout is interesting, a bit on the hard side but not overwhelming, usually in decent condition, and good value. Playing off the yellow tees made the day challenging but fair, and quite a few white tee markers were in the forward position anyway. Even the weather was nice. Wow, habitual complainers had a hard time coming up with a negative comment. Is there a harder par than that Alligator hole? Scores are usually in the “average” range for the winners, and such was the case today, since with 29 golfers, only a couple hit handicap.
A-Flight (0-22): Brian Parish (c/h 14) kept his cool and made handicap with a winning 36 points. Way to hit them straight! Steady John Davis (13) finished just behind with 35 points, and then ‘16’s Golfer of the Year Landis Brooks (9) came in with a respectable 33.
B-Flight (23+): Mr. Tom “Top Cat” Cotton (29) had a fine round earning a high score tying 36 points. Good going Tom! Dave Cooper (26) is on a streak and continued it with 35 points, and then John Anderson (31) finished with 33, making the two flight winners with identical scores.
Near Pins: John Davis (2), Dick Warberg, Jorg Weichselbaumn, Carole Kubicki, John Anderson.
Long putt: Torsten Bischoff, Kenny Chung
Best Nine’s (non-winner): Carole Kubicki, Nigel Perry
