Greenwood – 14th August, 2017.

Kissy gets Jockey in the straight!

Well it was to be 19 eager starters to take the buses up the highway to tackle Greenwood CC Golf Course.

On the buses the usual suspects were predicting as they do every time we venture out, it is a vast different trip home with most of the punters taking the time to lament the days outing? I think that a lot tend to sleep off some of the refreshments from the night before. This is a very funny game, it can do your head in!

We played C & B nines, off the yellow tees and although at 6,100 yards, a little short for some, and as always the tricky par 5’s sorted most out. Scores were good on the day but this is a course that sorts out a lot of golfers. The course was in good nick with the greens playing true. Weather was also good to us, a bit of a breeze would have been good as it did get hotter as the day got longer. But his Thailand, TIT!

It was Keith Buchanan that took all the accolades, his return was a very tidy 41 points. He was closely followed by Shane young who also had a very good return on the day. Third home was Rocky Lawson fighting off Martin Todd via the countback system. Steve younger rounded off the place getters coming home in 5th spot.
