The Growling Swan 10/11



To all on a side note Mike Gosden is on the mend and hopefully will be released from hospital in the not too distant future. “Good Luck Mike”

Two buses and a few cars prepared for the journey out to Crystal Bay GC It was to be 19 golfers that were set to make names for them selves at this course that is very popular with The Growling Swan.

The weather was on the threatening side with the prospect of rain hitting at any moment, as luck has it we never coped the rain till we had actually left the club house to head home. Conditions were good and the course was in great nick with the greens playing as they do here fast but true. We played C and A Nines in that order (A nine was used for the count-backs) from the yellow Tees as chosen by the captain of the day Fred Dineley. Rumor has it he wanted to play from the red tees but forgot to pack a dress!

Scores were quite good as you would expect playing from the front tees. With only One Division It was Colm Mullen who finished with a good score of 40 points from his 26 hcp. This made it 2 from 2 for Colm, now pressure is on to make it A Hat Trick and maybe go on to tie with Sal Brizzi’s 4 from 4. No pressure Colm. Second, Third & Fourth were all to be sorted out by the count back system. Winning the count back and taking out second was Rudy Regenass with Bill McGarvie coming third with Neil Harvey taking fourth place.

An interesting note these guys were followed by 3 golfers on 37, 2 golfers on 36 and 3 golfers on 35. Not bad at all!
