GROWLING SWAN GOLF 27/2
Played out of “BOGEY’S BAR & GRILL.”
MONTHLY MUG – STROKE EVENT.
GREENWOOD G.C. 27th of Feb, 2019
“Irish eyes are smiling” Countback gives The Mug to Colm Lawlor from Patrick Poussier!!!
Twenty six golfers were listed for today’s Stroke Event, The Growling Swan Feb Monthly Mug. Unfortunately we had 2 No-Shows creating a pain in the butt!
I do not know what it is, but we seem to attract the best fields on Mug Day. Remember this is a stroke event, personally I hate playing Stroke I do prefer Stableford!
Greenwood was the venue for today’s event, a very popular course for us at The Swan and today just proved as to why we rate this course that high! We are suffering from a lack of water on the courses we play but somebody forgot to tell Greenwood. Course was in top condition honestly, playing there you are not aware of the water problems this region is having. Everything about this course was spot on. This is why it is one of our favorite courses.
Two buses and a group of cars ferried the twenty four of us out to the course. We were to play two divisions with 4 placings in each. All novelties were up for grabs! Being a Thursday we attacked the course from the front tees!
A Flight saw Colm Lawlor (in his last hit out with us) take out not only A Flight but also The Feb Monthly Mug. His score of Net 67 with a stronger back nine saw him take the day! Second was Ken Bernek (also playing in his last game with us) who finished with Net 69, 2 shots behind the winner. Alex Field came in third with a Net 71 keeping him 1 shot clear of the countback that was to decide fourth. Mashi Kaneta won the countback giving him fourth place with John Mugavin the unfortunate fifth place getter!
B Flight saw Patrick Poussier take this out with Net 67, but unfortunately lost The Monthly Mug via our countback system. Second to greet the judges was Shane Young, his return of net 70 kept him 2 shots clear of playing partner Robert Cross taking third place with net 72. Filling the fourth spot on the podium was Wan Makmul, she returned with net 73!

Back at Bogey’s we welcomed Bruce Walters, Ian Pickles, John Mugavin, Gordon Clegg along with Dick Braimbridge and Wan Makmul. Unfortunately we bid farewell to Colm Lawlor (Colm as soon as JJ springs for the airfares I will be over to catch up) We also say goodbye to some old friends, original members of Growling Swan Golf, Ken & Wendy Bernek. It was great to catch up again and I do hope that our paths cross in the not too distant future. To all leaving us travel safe and hope to see you all again.
