Tropical Golf 08/11
Andre and Kenny On Top of Treasure Hill!
It’s a busy week this week for PSC Tropical golfers. We have the usual twice/week rounds scheduled, and the PSC Monthly right in the middle of it all. So would people take the day off to prepare? No way. We had 27 golfers show up for the round at Treasure Hill. So much for pacing yourself.
Treasure Hill is a bit of a drive – but it is a real treasure! Interesting layout, good condition, quiet and scenic. The design is a good but fair test of golf without monotony. Oh… and it’s a good price too! What’s not to like about this place? Weather this day was good but “nervous”. Near the end it kept rumbling and darkening, but for once the rain held off until just as the last group was putting out. Sometimes things work out. The scores came in a bit high, with one special one far above the rest.
A-Flight (0-19): Andre Van Dyk (c/h 16) had the best score of the day with a magnificent 43 points! How did Andre get so many? By never quitting! Two points were from an amazing shoe-less shot from the mud. What a recovery! Second place went to Brian Parish (14) a full seven strokes back with 36. Mark West (19) came next with 34 points followed by Landis Brooks (8) with 32.
B-Flight (20+): Kenny Chung (26) took top honors with a stellar 38 points. Good shooting! Next came Don Carmody (31) with 37 points, then Dave Cooper (25) with 36, and Colm Mullen (28) with 35 points was last up to the podium.
