Tony Wakefield bounces back at Phoenix
On Tuesday we took the long road to Greenwood. This is a very nice course and has been well maintained throughout the low season, in particular we found the greens were a good speed and running very true. It was a lonely feeling playing round as we had the course all to ourselves. Our golf was the usual mix of high’s and low’s, and despite having three 8’s on his card Paddy Devereux (22) emerged the surprising winner with 37 points.
On Thursday it was the short road to nearby Phoenix, which again was in very good condition with quick greens. The caddies were well turned out with nice new push trolleys, a change from the usual bit of old iron scrap iron they usually have to drag round most courses. Today we deviated from our usual format as the first prize was a free bungy jump. The winner was Neil Harvey (16) with 36 points and the unfortunate loser with 39 points was Tony Wakefield (17) who played consistently well throughout his round.
