GROWLING SWAN 10/5
Welcome back Roger, taking out today winning with a great score!
Heading out to Crystal Bay today, it appears that the rain has given us a break, but being Thailand anything can happen. Only one bus was required for the day as numbers are still not there!
When we arrived it appeared that the weather could take a turn for the worse as it was on the threatening side with the prospect of rain hitting at any moment! As luck would have it we never copped the rain till late in the day and, as light as it was, we missed it completely.
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 B Nines in that order (B nine was used for the count-backs) from the yellow Tees as chosen by the captain of the day.
We went to the starter with 13 (unlucky for some) golfers which meant that we would be playing One Flight only, with First & Second placing’s only. All Novelties were in play!
Scores were quite good as you would expect playing from the front tees. With only One Division It was Roger Ellis that led the charge returning to the judges with a very good score of 41 points. Tied up for second with Keith Buchanan getting the nod (via the count-back system) from Alex Field!
