Tropical Golf 17/02
Tuesday The 17th February 2015: Greenwood B & C (Stableford) This year has been really weird on the Golf front, I keep thinking the numbers playing are too high, but every time I think we are returning to reality we get a blip again. On this day we had the blip again and I had to break my limit of groups, but next week !!!.
So we had a slight reorganisation and off we went with a few extra players. Soon at Greenwood we had a quick change and got to the first tee where we were told we were playing the B & C Nines, not a bad nine but starting on C1 is always a bit tricky. On this day the normal strong wing was along so life was always going to be tricky.
The Course was as is normal at Greenwood, a bit rural but better in some respects for it. The fairways are a bit up and down, condition wise, but well playable, and the rough is as one would expect here. Now the greens were not bad and as usual were fine to put on, so on a windy day we had a great round.
Round over, after waiting for all the groups to come in, it was results recorded and into transport for the trip back to BJ’s where it was a late results show. With so many groups and the distance to the Course it was no surprise we were a bit late, still better late than never.
There is no reason I can see but every week one of the flights plays a blinder and the other plays much less well. Last week the A Flight were miles better than the B Flight, this week it was just the opposite. In the A Flight the winner was Henry Wong with 33 points. In second was Bob Watson who was surprised to be second with 32 points. Then we had a countback on 31 points that saw Colm Mullen in third, Richard Kubicki in fourth and Gerd Riedlar just missing out. But the A Flight was won by Mick O’Brien with 37 points ahead of Tom McDowell in second with 35 points, Dave Cooper in third with 34 points and in fourth was Barry Elphick with 33 points. Weird game this Golf!!. T.T.F.N.
