Growling Swan 16/11

Buffalo Bill rides into town and takes all before him.

With a good field of 26 golfers it was a pleasant change to take the buses up the highway to tackle Greenwood CC Golf Course. With our drivers finding a different route to travel it got travelling time down to under an hour.

On the buses the usual suspects were predicting as they do every time we venture out, it is a vast different trip home with most of the punters taking the time to lament the days outing, or just take the quiet time to catch up on some sleep!

We played C & A nines from the yellow tees and although a little short for some, it was the tricky par 5’s to sort most out. Scores were good on the day but this is a course that sorts out a lot of golfers. The course was in great nick with the greens playing spasmodically.

The weather was also good to us, a bit of a breeze would have been good as it did get hotter as the day got longer.

In Div 1 it was Buffalo Bill that showed the way, returning with 37 points 2 clear of his nearest opponent. Second in was Mashi Kaneta with Colm Lawlor knocking the judge out of contention via the count back system.

Div 2 saw Fritz Webber return a very good score, he greeted the judges with a score of 40 points. Second and third went to Alan Sanders and Colin Stielow.
