PSC GOLF REPORT.
PLUTALUANG (Big Navy) G.C. – 15th March, 2019.
“Rod Weekes as a late acceptance takes it via a Count Back.”
Well what a decent crowd to a course that nobody likes! Seventeen golfers took up the challenge today at Big Navy, two buses and a few cars were required to ferry all out to the course.
For a Monday , and given how quiet it is, a good roll up maybe it’s the price that gets them anyways it was good to see this many golfers.
The course was in good nick and offered plenty of run. Bunkers were clean and raked, Fairways tidy, but the greens I found to be a little slow and somewhat difficult to master. Not too many golfers on the course and the weather being the way it was well we were in for a good days golf. With only ABILITY getting in the way!
Our five groups teed off about 10 min earlier than our allotted tee time, and can say we were not held up at all. Seventeen golfers insured that we would play the single flight with all novelties in play. Plus the Bonus double up on two of the four Par 3’s, “Nearest the Pin”
The Bonus works this way, if there is a jackpot from the previous day, numbers are placed in a hat each number represents a hole on a Par 3 (prior to the Golfers returning) A draw is done and that is how what holes are decided.
Well it was Rod Weekes (a late inclusion) that took out the title today. He and Keith Buchanan both returned with 38 points but it was Rods back nine that got him the nod beating Keith in a count back. Third place went to Martin Kempton with the final placing on the podium going to Steve Younger!
All in all there were some good scores today!
