Tropical Golf From BJ Holiday Lodge 12/12
Friday The 12th December 2014: Pleasant Valley ( Stableford) It seemed I had to come out of hibernation, regards a Friday, as Dick went with the group to watch the real Golfers at Amata Springs. I am not really used to this Friday Golf but maybe a change is good. I hoped it would get me out of my Golf slump.
Considering we had many players away we still had a good turnout, it seems that everyone is in Town to play Golf at the moment. So brekkers over it was soon time to go, in fact a little early with a smaller field. The drive down there was relatively smooth except one driver missed the turn off of Route 7 and as all drivers know it is a long way to go to turn around,
We were soon away with fine weather on a Course that looked great if possibly a bit wet. Still away we went. The Course proved as expected very good with occasional damp areas, but all in all a great day on a Course that showed up well. Well that is apart from the greens that were average to say the least.
We got around really well at a good speed and the Course was relatively quiet considering it was a Friday. I suppose most players went to watch the real Golfers at Amata Springs. But been there, seen it. done it and give me a bucket of sand and I will tell all.
Back at BJ’s it was soon time for the results. In the A Flight , 0 to 19, the winner was Walter Baechli with a good 39 points ahead of Mark West in second with 37 points on countback over Alan Sullivan in third. In the B Flight the winner was ‘The Scribe’, Derek Brook, who after weeks of poor Golf had a good day and won with 41 points. In second was Graham Buckingham with 39 points and in 3rd was Karen Brown with 37 points on countback over Barry Elphick. T.T.F..N
