Growling Swan 27/04


Treasure Hill – 27th April 2015

“Gentlemen Jim” Groves Gets in the Groove.

A small field headed out for today’s game however all were in high spirits.

A lovely course, difficult in places with its tight fairways and other than the first four greens in very good condition.

We were the only golfers on the course and I have to say it was great being able to cruise along at a steady pace. A very warm and humid day with little or no breeze for relief, however we were lucky enough to beat the early afternoon downpour.

We welcomed back from South Africa Rudy Reganase and bid farewell to John Coetzee returning to Western Australia. A good bloke with a great sense of humour, so don’t mess about John and come back soon.

It was a tough day with the scribe struggling in all areas, but as all are aware I have this problem on most courses.

Presentations were as per usual at the course with the three place getters being the only ones to shine today and some very average scores handed in.

In saying that, on such a great course all had an enjoyable time which beats a day’s work!
