GROWLING SWAN 25/2
“Jon Dean joins us to get the prize, The Jock makes it 2 from 2.”
Twenty four golfers took the journey out to Eastern Star, a good crowd for Monday golf enough to make an organizer happy.
Haven’t played this course in a while, if my memory serves me correctly they were still renovating the change rooms on our last visit!
Well the course was in good nick, as you would expect, fairways clean and tidy, bunkers had been maintained and the greens were spot on. The weather was also on our side with a nice breeze keeping the temp down. Everything was set for what should be a good day for Golf! Sorry there was one deterrent and that being slow play by the groups in front of our mob!
The numbers gave us the opportunity to play two flights, A- Flight was for golfers 0 to 17 and B- Flight was from 18 and upwards! With all novelties in play.
A – Flight saw Jon Dean return with the score of the day, he returned with 40 points well above all other scores. Second saw Mashi Kaneta come home the single point in front of third place. This went to the count back with Martin Todd getting the nod from both Martin Kempton and Keith Buchanan.
B – Flight saw The Jock Shane Young making it two in a row, with the opportunity to get his Hat trick from his last game before heading back to Aussie. Second past the post was to also be sorted out by our count back system, Stuart Mann got the nod from his playing partner Dave (Is there any) Maw.
