The Growling Swan 04/07
Crilly beats a bad back to take the Points!
With a small field of 17 golfers they made up for the numbers with the enthusiasm shown by our golfers. One needs to ask was it the cheap rates offered up by The Big Navy Course or the chance to play the course that it is. We played East and South from the yellow tees nominated by today’s captain. Big Navy can be daunting to some but personally I find it a challenging course.
Once again this course was in great nick with the greens playing true. There was a threat of rain but that passed as quick as it arrived. Fairways had a bit of run and there was plenty of water to challenge all golfers as it was placed, sometimes at 2 or 3 locations on the one hole.
Geri came out guns blazing and was determined to not let his back beat him on the day. With only one division it was Geri with 41 points a good score on the day. Filling the other places were Denis Steele, with The Viper and Glenn Henriksen made up the four spots. Good winning scores today!
