Growling Swan 23/03



Emerald GC – March 23rd 2017

J.J. returns and comes up “TRUMPS”.


It was seventeen golfers (both male and female) set out to take on Emerald Golf Course, with B1150 all-inclusive I am surprised that we did not get a larger crew. Playing from the white Tees the course was in Tip Top condition, with the greens playing true. Great value for a very good course.

Weather was fine, a little on the hot side but no rain or any sight of rain suited our players (or most of our players) tuned out a great day as it always is at this course!

It was Irish Eyes are Smiling our friend has returned and came back in the fashion that only he can, JJ Harney greeted the judges with a fine 41 points. We would all like that! Taking second position was Martin Kempton, has been a little while since Marty greeted the judges. We had to go to the count back for third, three golfers ended up with 33 points, with two golfers going to the podium. Glenn Smith took out third place from his playing partner Steve Younger with Dave Maw being the unfortunate one to miss out.



1st – JJ Harney (12) 41 points
