GREENWOOD GC – 19TH of March 2015
Toddy wins The Compass Cap
Twenty three punters fronted for the game today as delighted as chickens in a wheat heap.
One player mentioned his chance of handing in a winning score would be akin to throwing stones at Gibraltar with a view to reducing it to rubble.
Welcomes were handed out to Max and Geoff Bracegirdle, Fred Cuypers and Khan Speechley from Australia, Tom McMahon working in Indonesia and Pattaya resident Phil Taylor.
The weather was superb with a gentle breeze and the course in top condition even though Bill said the fairways were a bit patchy.
The B and C nines were the examination for the day and despite playing from the yellow tees only five golfers beat their handicap whilst two played to it.
You don’t need to hit from the white markers on this course to provide a good test.
In the A grade Tom McMahon absolutely streeted the field with forty four points whilst Eric “The Judge” Black on forty and Sal Brizzi on thirty seven rounded it out.
The B grade saw Max Bracegirdle hand in thirty nine points, Alan “The Colonel” Sanders scored thirty seven and Kahn Speechley on thirty six made the podium.

The Coveted Compass Cap was won by Martin Todd who commented that due to recent form he’d have had his resources fully tested bowling a hoop downhill let alone handing in a winning card.
His score was so bad it looked like a plate full of goodo dog rings passed three times through Rin Tin Tin.
Our resident hound Deefa was once again the happy recipient of many donations for the children of Pattaya and the players are applauded for their generosity.
