Growling Swan 14/9
PSC GOLF REPORT – GROWLING SWAN
EASTERN STAR – Thursday 14th September, 2017
By J Olsen
It was Paul that Hacked his way thru the field!
Nineteen golfers arrived and were enthusiastic as always, eager with anticipation on checking out Eastern Star after a lengthy absence for many of today’s group.
We teed off the yellow tees. The presentation of the course was very good although the placement of the pins on the greens were in locations never before seen and made life very difficult for everyone. Despite this setback, the sun was shining and a lovely steady breeze kept conditions ideal for an enjoyable round. When you consider that a bad storm went thru the course the day before. The staff need to congratulated for getting the course up apparently it took most of the day (yesterday) to clean up the debris.
With 19 golfers we played the one flight only, going down to 5 placings it was Paul Hack that came in with 38 points. A good round, second was Glenn Smith getting better at the game he enjoys. Then it was bill Steinmann and Steve Younger that had to be separated by the count back system (Steve Younger got the nod). The Lovely Lorraine Percy filled 5th spot on the podium, a very popular place getter!

At the completion of presentations, Peter offered everyone to partake in the complimentary hot food he provides, which today included a very large pot of Macaroni with chicken and another equally large pot of rice, which golfers and non golfers alike took great delight in consuming. Thanks Peter!
