Christmas Eve at Bangpakong Riverside
Twas the day before Christmas and all through BJ’s Holiday Lodge, the Tropical Golfers finished up breakfast and coffee and loaded golf bags into the vehicles. There was zero chance of a white Christmas, and hardly a cloud in the sky, as we motored up the Seven, to Bangpakong Riverside Country Club. This course is usually in great condition, and today was no exception. The “closely mown” areas are a pleasure to hit from, and the greens run true.
With a field of 19 players, there were ten winners, spread over two flights. The A flight (0 – 23) had the score of the day, with Brian Gabe’s 41 stableford points, playing from his course handicap of 19. Second went to Rob Brown (8) with 38 points. Mick Coghlan (37) was third with 33, and Steve Truelove (8) fourth with 33 points.
In the B flight (24 and up) Torsten Bischoff well known German tennis player (25) claimed first with 37 points , and Don Carmody (29) second with 36 points. Dave Cooper (29) was third with 34, and Joe Sparwirth (25) fourth with 33.
The best front nine, not placing, went to Brian Parish’s 18, while, Gordon Clegg had the best back nine score with 17 points. Congratulations to all the winners and Happy New Year to everyone.
