Tropical Golf 20/11
Maurice Pummels Pattavia
This Friday the Tropical Golfers headed out to Pattavia CC. With no chance of rain in the forecast it was a good day to enjoy well watered fairways without getting watered ourselves. The drive to Pattavia is one of the longer ones, but the trip was surprisingly smooth. Some new shortcuts helped.
Pattavia is one of those courses who got it right. Overall in excellent condition with well maintained fairways and greens, and at 1050 bt to walk is great value. Other courses who want to charge significantly more for less would do well to visit here. Putting the greens are among the most difficult in the area, fast and highly sloped. A real test of skill. Speaking of skill, a few golfers really showed theirs this day.
When the counting was done, PSC Golf Chairman Maurice Roberts (h’cap 14) bested the field with room to spare with 39 points. Maurice did so well this day he brought his Business Manager along. Next in line frequent winner John Davis (14) did well with 36 points, edging out Ted Morris (15) on countback, and poor Brian Gabe (18) was left in the dust.
Near pins: Landis Brooks (2), Ted Morris (2)
