Growling Swan 26/12
Dave Maw does it again as he beats Stuart The Mann on a countback.
Boxing Day 2016 maybe too much Xmas Pudding or too much wine in the trifle, but it was 16 golfers that decided to work off the Xmas lunch from the day before!
Well we set out to take on the famous Crocodile Hole at Treasure Hill GC, the weather looked good and excitement was in the air. Rated quite low the 16th claims plenty of victims as scoring on this hole is quite low. It is a hard hole to play whether you are a big hitter or an average hitter of the ball.
We attacked the course from the White Tees, the course was in great nick (and the greens played true) scores were on the higher side of average.
Point of order there was very little difference between the white and yellow tees.
With only one divisions we all knew that it would be tight at the end of the day, scores having to be on the better of side of good to get to the podium. Three placings were the order of the day!
It was Dave Maw to get nod from Stuart Mann only being separated via the countback system. A further two shots behind we had 0 handicapper Pieter Zwart taking 3rd poiition.
