Growling Swan 23/11



MOUNTAIN SHADOW GC – 23rd November 2017.


Alex is first to climb the mountain with The Colonel in hot pursuit!!


As it was.


Well we started with 24 on the Wednesday night but pull outs late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning saw us with w field of 17. I try to explain to people that buses are booked at 3.30 the day before scheduled play. Cancellations or pull outs cost us money. Maybe the time has come for us to take deposits as the Golf Club is losing money hand over fist. Anyway that’s my whinge for the day!


We played from the White Tees on a course that was not rain affected, as sure as we were playing you would have thought that we would play Lift Clean & Place. This was not the case with carts on course Mt Shadow was in real good nick!


With today’s numbers we were to play one Division only.


It was Alex Field that jump out of the boxes and took the lead from Go To Woha! Greeting the judges with a very good score of 41 points. That was enough to put him 5 points in front of the field. Second past the post was Alan Sanders (Colonel) it has to be mentioned that The Colonel has achieved 36 points in his last two outings. Well done Colonel! Third person to greet the judges was The Judge Eric Black (or to the European Bus Drivers fraternity Ecca). With JC Lhoste taking fourth place on the Podium. JC you are having a Stella Tour!
