BURAPHA GOLF CLUB – Thursday 17th August 2017

By J Olsen




It was 30 + Golfers in tree buses along with a few cars that hit the Burapha course with enthusiasm. A good group for the days outing bolstered by Todd’s Touring Party who once again have joined us for a few games of golf! Good to see you guys, one can only hope that you have as much enjoyment as you have in the past. The only thing missing from the day was Ricey!

The course standard was high which is common for this club and the caddies also fall into this category. This scribe thinks that this is an A Grade Course, and all is up to and above standard!

With the numbers we were to play 3 Flights, A Flight saw Paul Kennedy take this out with a tidy 34 points beating Freddie Starbeck on a count back Third in was Aaron Dykes coming in 1 shot behind the winners.

B Flight saw the youngest Todd Brad score the score of the day Brad returned with a very tidy 40 points (Well done mate a great score) Second past the post was Kissy Buchanan edging out Peter Mc Donald via a count back.

C Flight gave Ronald Gillett yet another top of the podium finish, 39 points was enough for Ron to take first position. Second in was Robert Cross one shot behind the leader. With Aaron Shorten filling the third spot on the podium.

Point of interest both Ron and Aaron became duel winners on The Spagoni Day shield, well done guys!
