Tropical Golf 06/12
The cars should drive to this Course on their own, and one day maybe they will, as we go there every month at least once. Last trip was last month for Poppy Golf, and so on this day off we went on our monthly trip.
The test for this day was to be the C & A Nines in that order and as usual, at most Courses, the C Nine is the least favourite as the C Nines on the Courses always seem to be a bit of an add on. Here at K.K. it seems to me it is also not as good as the other two, but it is still a really hard test. It seems harder than the other two and somehow a bit less smooth. Still that was our test so on we went.
Starting on the C Nine we start on a par 5 where the drive is important as hook the ball and it is in the water and push it and it is out of bounds. A tough hole to start on and a hole you must play three really good shots to get near the green with water all up the left.
It does not get any easier and with a strong wind the day was going to get a bit difficult. And it did for many of the players. We then went onto the A Nine and this is supposed to be the most difficult nine by stroke and on this day it was very difficult especially with a strong wind. Mind the fairways were in good condition and the greens rolled fast and true.
All good things must come to an end, and it was through the showers and into transport for the trip back. This was as usual a trip that took time as this time of afternoon is usually busy. Mind I do not usually notice as this is my time for ‘Resting my Eyes’.
Soon back it was into the results. In the A Flight, 0 to 17, the winner was John Davis with a fine 38 points ahead of a countback on 36 points that saw André Van Dyk in second and Peter Bailey in third. In the B Flight we had the best score of the day when Bob Britton had a very good 40 points. We then had a countback on 35 points that saw Carole Kubicki in second and Tom Herrington in third.
The new results are from the best front nine won by John Edwards and the best back nine won by Mick Coghlan.Then it was time to relax and have a few cold ones!!. T.T.F.N.
