Monday 26th June
Just 7 players with 6 in the comp today at the tough Treasure Hill. Some more new comers Barbara Cooper, Rod Brown & Manfred Hanke returned and a 1st timer Les Harris from Aus. along with Takeshi, Tip and the Donkey, they took on the course which was in perfect condition the greens the best Ive ever seen them, With a little cloud cover the weather was perfect for golf. We teed off ½ hr early and with a 3 ball 1st we flew round the front 9 but then on the back we ran into a Thai 5 ball, but they did not hold us up. We all started slowly but after a few holes the Donkey came to life and with a birdie and near pin on the 6th maybe there’s hope for the old man yet.with 19pts on both sides his best score ever on this course ever. Barbara came 2nd with 30pts and also a near pin.
1st Colin Davis (19) 38 pts
2nd Barbara Cooper (41) 30 pts
