PSC GOLF REPORT.
PATTAVIA – THURSDAY 15th November 18.
“Shooter McGarvie leaves Town with his guns still Smoking”
Two buses and a couple of cars took us up the highway to this lovely course. The trip itself was uneventful other than dodging the craters on the road leading from the highway to the course proper. Bus chatter lasted about 20 mins then I think that golfers were catching up on a bit of shut eye!
Pattavia GC (the pineapple plantation) was today’s venue. I played today (attempted) and have to say that I have not played on a course that was in near perfect condition as this was. You could not fault this course in any “way shape or form” it was a delight to play. Sorry the sand in the bunkers was a bit off, and I should know as I entered bunkers on fourteen occasions. We attacked this fine course from the yellow tees!
Twenty golfers gave us the opportunity to play two flights will all novelties in play.
A Flight saw Bill Shooter McGarvie (on his last outing with us) take the game by the scruff of the neck and went out with all guns blazing. He greeted the judges with a very good score of 41 points. Second and forcing a count back was Martin Kempton, but it was Bill’s day today. Third place and finishing the placings was buffalo Bill Steinmann with Alex Field forcing yet another count back. Unfortunate for Alex it was Buffalo that got the nod.
B Flight was not as close Sean Millar had a cracker of a game and shot a very good 40 points, a lot of credit goes to Fabian as he did a great job with the shortening of his clubs. Second was sorted by the count back system with Colin Stielow knocking JC Lhoste into third position. These two were six points behind the winner.
