Growling Swan 4/9


Bankpakong – 4th September, 2017

Younger Wins by a Whisker


A keen group of 14 golfers headed up Highway 7 to the marvelous Bangpakong Golf Course.  The conditions were sunny with a gentle breeze about, and it seemed perfect for good scoring, which proved to be the case. The course was in great nick with spongey fairways and nicely paced and true greens.

Greetings were handed out to Bill Steinmann returning from the US, as well as Patrick Poussier and Takeshi.

A farewell was given to Graham Laurie, you will be missed Patch.

So only one Division today and it was the highly competitive Steve Younger who snuck home by one point from evergreen Frank Riley. Frank finished second by way of a countback from Jayson Schembri, who was seen staring up a palm tree on the 18th, wondering if his ball was going to drop out of that palm tree…..which of course it never did, thus finishing his chance of victory.

Fourth place was filled by the improving Glenn Smith who motored home with an impressive 25 points on the back nine.
