Growling Swan 19/7
THURSDAY 19th July 2018
Pattana Golf Course – Stableford.
By PRH Grey.
Alex Blitz’s the Field!
It was eleven golfers that took the journey to Pattana Golf Course. Not a course that we get to too often but never the less yet another fine course. Yes we are taking advantage of the discount pricing!
The course was in great shape and apart from “No Carts on Course” you would not be aware of the fact that we have had plenty of rain. Weather was perfect for the day, not too hot with a bit of a breeze, although looking at the back of one golfers head you would have thought that it was a full on sunny day!
I was told by an astute golfer that this Course was the next step up from Burapah, having not played the course I cannot give an opinion on this. Listening to today’s golfers there were few complaints regarding the course.
We played courses B & C from the yellow tees also we did play “Pick, Clean and Place.” As stated the fairways were great, greens were true and it was all in order, all you had to do was play!
With a small field we were to play one division only with two placing’s.
It was Alex Field that got out of the blocks, it appeared that his nemeses for the day was to be his playing partner Jayson Schembri. Round the home turn with the finish line in sight Alex (1 shot up) duffs it off the tee leaving a clear run for Jayson to the finish line!
