The Growling Swan 22/09
Buffalo Bill holds off all attacks!
Twenty Three Golfers set out from The Swan, the weather being very doubtful considering the courses that had been washed out earlier in the week. On arrival we asked the marshal “if carts were allowed on the course” his response was “they have had no rain”. Game on!
Once again the course was in excellent condition, and when you consider that B1000 covers Green Fee, Cart and Caddie. The best news is that they are now extending this for the month of October. Great news, we will consider 2 games again for the month of October.
We played 2 flights, A Flight was taken out, with 35 points, by Bill Steinmann with John Davis a few strokes and Mashi Kaneta was hot on John’s heels to take out 3rd position. B flight was a different kettle of fish with all 3 players returning the same score, positions on the podium were sorted via The Count Back system. At the end Keith Buchanan took out first position followed by Patrick Poussier with John Edwards rounding of the placings.
Up coming Programs;
Monday 26th Mt Shadow, Thursday 29th Greenwood “Monthly Mug Day” & Monday 3rd Phoniex.
1st Bill Steinmann (12) 35 pts

On return to The Growling Swan, we welcomed Brendan Devlin, John Edwards and John Davis, two of which stood on the podium. We then relaxed with a great serve of Larb served up by the great girls here at the Swan. Of course many beers were consumed, and many stories exaggerated!
