Tough Test for Most at Treasure Hill
First to Tuesday when we went to Plutaluang, with the West & East combo our test at a tad over 6500 yards from the White Tees. The course was in good condition, with the greens looking good, although a little on the slow side. I think this is by design as the course gets a lot of player traffic & more close cutting could well be to their long term detriment. Best score of the day went to Jeff Wylie (5) with a satisfactory but unspectacular 35 points, edging Jonathan Pratt (11) by a solitary point. NTPs went to Martin with 3, while Jonathan got the other.
Thursday was a visit to Treasure Hill, where the course continues with renovation & maintenance of greens and approaches. The fairways & rough are a little bit longer than usual, making the course a stern test indeed if you stray from the short & narrow. Owen Walkley (15) who has been struggling with his game of late, shot what I considered to be a quite spectacular 36 points under the conditions, to easily lead the field home. Joel Flor (23) filling 2nd spot with a satisfactory 32 points, while NTPs went to Owen & Jeff.
