Treasure Hill Deluge, Pleasant Valley Threatening
Tuesday was our monthly trip up the 331 to visit Treasure Hill, where we played from the White tees at around 6700 yards. The course was in good nick, however a big storm rolled through creating a bit of havoc for a while as greens were awash. Sufficient numbers for 2 flights today, with the line being 0 – 16 & 17+. Paul Smith (3) was the best of the day with 35 points, followed in by Tom Murray (10) with 30 points, while Owen Walkley (9) got 3rd spot with 29 points. The higher flight group did not fare too well in the scores, with Brian Maddox (21) leading the way with 29 points, while Iain Painter (19) was next best at 27 points & Chris Gee (22) filling out the podium wioth 26 points. NTPs were spread around between Tom, Chris & Mam.
Thursday saw us visit Pleasant Valley, somwhat in preparation for those expecting to play the PSC Monthly next Friday. The course was looking good, with fairways nicely grassed, however the greens are definitely on the long side, running slow & encouraging a lot of grain which results in them not rolling truly. Scores were an improvement on Tuesday, with a countback required to separtate 1st & 2nd, with Jeff Wylie (7) getting the nod over Clive Hoseason (20) 20/17, after both signed for 36 points. 3rd spot went to Colin Quinlan (9) with 35 points, after he edged Jonathan Pratt (15) 19/15 on countback. NTPs went to Colin, Graham, Owen & Clive.
