PSC GOLF REPORT.
CRYSTAL BAY G.C. – 24th Jan, 2019.
Takeshi Hakozaki wins on his “Home Ground.”
Well we mustered 15 golfers for today’s hit-out at one of our favorite courses Crystal Bay.
Did rec a few complaints in regards of the condition of the course. Most were saying that, “It’s not up to its usual standard.” All that to one side it was a little dry in places as when the ball would bounce on the fairway a puff of dirt would come up telling us that things were a little dry. Greens played the way they always do at Crystal.
Although the weather was a little on the warm side playing conditions were not too bad, a slight breeze did prevail which certainly helped. Playing from the White Tees created a problem for some, I am not sure how to get around this but it is obvious that you can’t please all of the people all of the time, but it would be good to please some of the people some of the time! Suggestions please!
Today’s numbers allowed us to play the one flight, again with all the novelties in play.
It was Takeshi, playing on his home course that returned with 36 points as did Colm Lawlor, it was the count back system that gave Takeshi the nod with Colm coming in second. Again it was to the count back to sort out 3rd and 4th. As it was Dave Maw, Alex Field and Frank Waterhouse all returned one shot behind the leaders. Yet again of to the count back system, Dave Maw got the nod there from Alex Field with Paco being the unfortunate one to miss out.
