Thursday April 05, Pattavia – St
John and Dave Top Pattavia Scorefest
This Thursday, Friday our normal day being a Holiday, eighteen golfers met at BJ’s Lodge to try their luck at Pattavia. The number would be higher but many were in Georgia hoping to get their last minute invitation to play in The Masters. Such a surprise none of them got called. The rest took the drive out to Pattavia, which is not such an arduous journey as it used to be.
The course could be listed in good-to-very good condition. There were no complaints about the fairways, and the usually ultra-slick greens were a little more manageable, though still difficult. The only universal complaint was condition of the bunkers, with coarse gravelly sand making them quite difficult. The other comment is ‘it’s that time of the year’, where endless buzzing fruit flies can make one want to scream at times. Pattavia is usually a scoring course and this day was no exception. If you didn’t at least match your handicap you were part of the audience, not part of the show.
A-Flight (0-19): John Davis (c/h 15) continued his long run, this time taking first place on countback over Alan Sullivan (17) with 38 points. Mashi Kaneta (16) rounded out his flight with 36 points.
B-Flight (20+): Dave Cooper (27) had the high score of the day with a most excellent 39 points. Awesome Dave! Graham Buckingham (22) had a fine 37 points, followed by Jim Ferris (25) with 36. Good scores all.
Best Nine (non winner): Karen Brown and Gordon Clegg had best non-winning 9-hole scores.
