Growling Swan 20/11


Plutaluang (Big Navy) – 20th November 2017.

James Olson.



We had twenty one golfers turning out to take on the challenge of Plutaluang, or as we know it Big Navy.

The course was in great nick, even with the amount of water lying on the fairways. That being the case we played Lift Clean & Place, the greens being slow for the first hour, but as soon as the rain came it left them a little slower.

With 21 Golfers we were in a position to play two divisions with the break down being Div 1 0 to 17 and Div 2 being 18 plus. The breakdown of Divisions was pretty well spot on 5 of the 6 placings ended up on 32 points with the Div 1 winner returned with 33 points!

It was Steve Younger that lead the way going head to head with Alex kept him on his toes. As said earlier Steve greeted the judges with 33 points enough to win on the day. Eric Black and Terry Drier were to be separated by our count back system with the Judge getting the nod and taking second.

Division 2 saw a bottle neck at the top of the tree, 4 golfers returned with 32 points a scorers nightmare anyway we sorted it.
