PSC GOLF REPORT.
PATTAVIA – Thursday 14th of February 2019.

“It’s Steve Younger triumphant again!”
Twenty golfers set out in two buses and a couple of cars was the requirement to deliver us out for today’s challenge.
Pattavia Golf Course, or fondly known as The Pineapple Plantation, was today’s venue for our golfers. This is a course that is on our radar to play every month. It is a good course that is priced sensibly and not one that inflates the pricing for the fictional High Season.
The course was once again in Tip Top condition, I am not sure as to exactly what they are doing but they are cleaning up areas that had become a little overgrown. It is looking good! Fairways were excellent, bunkers were clean and raked and if you ask Bernie the greens are too fast. I am a firm believer that if they don’t go in the hole then there is a problem with the green!
Weather played an important part in today’s happenings. The cloud cover offered us good relief, but when the cover moved it was quite hot. We took the course on from the yellow tees and with the log jam we started proceedings from the 10th tee.
Two flights today with all novelties in play!
A Flight saw Steve Younger take the game with a good score (score of the Day) 39 points saw him to the top of the leader board. Second home, a single point in areas was Keith Buchanan. Third past the post and again only a single shot behind was Stu Casa Rifkin. Good effort mate!
B Flight was also a close encounter, Tony Cook raised the flag with 38 points (Good score Tony) just to be (same, same) one shot behind in second place was Mikito Homma. Third place went to Colm Mullen. All in all some good scores from a good day of golf!
