Growling Swan 23/01




Twenty three golfers turned out for todays outing to Pattavia to contest The January Monthly Mug. Being our only stroke event for the month it can attract golfer and it can scare some off.

With the weather on our side playing conditions were cherry ripe We set out from the front markers and found the course to be in as good condition as it always is. I found it interesting to listen to the golfers that were playing Pattavia for the first time, conversation was all about the greens and as to how difficult they are to play.

With 23 golfers we were playing 2 Divisions with The Mug Winner being the best golfer on the day (from Div1 or Div2).

Div 1 produced todays Mug winner, Mashi coming in with the very good score of Nett 64, followed by Dave Maw with Alex Field filling third spot.

Div 2 saw Patrick Poussier taking first spot with Nett 70, second and third went to the countback with Kevin, being the better of the Smiths, taking second spot from Glenn Smith ending in third spot.
