The Growling Swan 13/06
KEITH BUCHANSAN “KISSES” THEM ALL GOODBYE!
We had 22 starters all eager to attack Burapha for the second time this month. This came about simply because this course is priced perfectly for us here at The Swan B1700 all inclusive (that does not include cans Cassa). We requested Courses C & D and that what we played, playing from the front tees.
The weather was on our side even though it did get warmer as the day got longer, and the course was once again in very good nick.
Some good scores resulted with Keith Buchanan setting the pace taking A Flight comfortably from Tom McMahon and Martin Todd went to the countback to decide second and third.
B Flight saw Sandy Lieper acknowledge the judges ahead of Roger Ellis with The Viper, Mark Stapleton filling the third spot. As it turned out third position went to a count back between four players.
