EASTERN STAR GC – 13TH JULY. 2017

IT’s the man of STEELE!
As it Happened.
On an overcast morning with a bit of rain threatening 14 golfers headed out from The Growling Swan to tackle Eastern Star GC. Looking back thru records it has been around 10 months since we had played here. So the challenge was on.
The weather was playing games and as the golfers arrived the heavens opened up which threw some doubt as to wether we could take carts on course as the rain was quite heavy! It turned out ok for us we could take carts on course but we had to play Pick, Clean and Place. As the day got longer the wamer it became, a slight breeze was of some relief later in the day!
The greens were in superb condition, fairways were the best that they have been for a long time, our golfers actually commented on as to well the course was. It’s the best the course has been for years.
We played from the white tees which unfortunately does not agree with all but as we have such a broad range of golfers it is important to keep all happy. We play from the back as often as we play from the front.
Only one division was required and it was Denis Steele that took the honors played well as e always does, returning with 39 points, he was well ahead of all. Second was Martin Kempton with Steve Younger taking 3rd position.
