Bob, Andre, and Gordon are Tops at Greenwood
We are moving into the New Year nicely, and this is a reminder there are only 330 shopping days until Christmas. Before heading to the malls twenty five Tropical Golfers headed to Greenwood for the first time this year. Some had shiny new golf gear to break in, or maybe just break. After the usual “meet, greet, and eat” at BJ’s Lodge, the cars loaded up and the caravan to Greenwood was on its way.
We knew in advance that three golf groups where scheduled for the same time, and there was some trepidation it would turn into a chaotic mess. Greenwood staff was up the challenge however, and the well choreographed start let all groups get around without bumping into each other. Greens were in very good condition. Fairways while good overall, were a botanist’s dream with numerous kinds of grass, clover and some weeds on each one. Fourteen golfers had their names called, and we hope the announcers don’t get laryngitis soon. Many good scores showed that the course played well, and Andre Van Dyk deserves special notice as the best of the day with 41 points.
A-Flight (0-13): Bob Britton (37), Steve Trulove (34), Brian Parish (33), Landis Brooks (32)
B-Flight (14-23): Andre Van Dyk (41), Dick Warberg (38), Tom Herrington (34), Joe Sparwirth (33)
C-Flight (24+): Gordon Clegg (36), David Bailey (34), Barry Elphick (33), Kurt E. (32)
Best Nine (non-winner): In the “So close” department, Torsten Bischoff and Rob Brown had the best half rounds.
