GROWLING SWAN 14/6
CRYSTAL BAY – 14th June, 2018. STABLEFORD
Buffalo Bill losses his way except on the “Golf Course”!!
It was a bus load and a couple of cars that set out with all golfers prepared to take on The Crystal Bay challenge. Well it probably seemed as if the day was on a downward spiral for one golfer, getting lost not once but twice on the way out. He must have been thinking as to how bad can this day get, well mate it did get better!!!!
The weather was the stock standard hot and sultry, a bit of a breeze but that would not have been enough to keep the flies off the chips. We played off the Yellow tees, C and B Nines in that order (B nine was used for the count-backs). The course was in good nick and generally held sway against the field. Crystal Bay is what it is, a good course that is maintained and never too busy a course. It is one of The Growling Swans favorites!
Bill Steinmann parked the car and his thoughts obviously, as he was on song on the course. From the first Tee Box (as he sent one straight down the middle) he was heard muttering “I wish I had that luck in the car.” Anyway, Bill ended the round with 36 points tying for first spot but winning via The Count Back System. Mashi was the unfortunate golfer that lost the Count Back, as always he was humble in defeat. Big hitter Glenn Smith came in third with Alex Field a further point behind to take fourth spot.
