All in the genes for Denham!

Monday 7th – Green Valley – Stableford – White Tees.
1st – Geoff Hibbert (10) 37 points
T -2nd – Andy Makara (26) 36 points
T -2nd – Andy Piazza (20) 36 points

First off, this is your last chance to sign up for our Kabinburi Road Trip on the 24th for a one-nighter and 2 green fees, so drop by TGC or call us to sign up. It is just a 2 hour drive to the hotel and the course is in superb condition. Ladies and families are welcome.

I am usually singing the praises about the condition of Green Valley, but times are dry out here and we have seen this course in much better shape. The greens were still lightly sanded but rolled fairly true.

Visiting Geoff Hibbert showed the lads how it was done out there today and 37 was the magic number. We had a fine pair of Andy’s with us and they not only shared the name but the score as well…36 apiece to split second place on the podium.

BEN DENHAM
Mr. Ben Denham, what a week!

Wednesday 9th – Emerald – Stableford – White Tees

T – 1st – Ben Denham (3) 36 points
T – 1st – Robbie Taylor (13) 36 points
3rd – David Outhred (18) 35 points

I was happy to see smiling faces getting off the bus back to TGC after a round at the Emerald. All had good things to say about the condition of the course and the layout is always enjoyable. We have not played here for several months, which is a shame. I will get this track back on our schedule as the signup sheet was full and the happy campers want to go back. The weather was fantastic here as well as we continue to dodge the bullets of the rainy season.

Most golfers remark on how beautiful the collection of par-3’s are at this course and I would certainly agree. How much input Sir Nick Faldo put into this track is dubious, but it sure is a great layout nonetheless.

Ben Denham continues on his roll, but today he had to share the top spot with Robbie Taylor. Both did well to post 36’s out there and we saw David Outhred just miss out with 35 points.

Friday 11th – Pattavia Century – Stableford – White Tees

1st – Alan Cole (13) 39 points
2nd – Ben Denham (3) 38 points
3rd – Phil Smedley (10) 36 points

Another full sheet of golfers brought 24 of us together for our visit to Pattavia. Winding through the calming pineapple groves, those overcast skies assured us a cool day of golf was ahead. It was absolutely perfect weather and the course was also in great shape for yet another round of millionaire’s golf. The greens here did not let us down, fast and true, but some of the lads had them sussed and some good scores were posted today.

This is not an easy track to score on, but our podium tally had everyone shooting their handicap at the very least. Capt. Phil, who has been playing pretty well lately, got just enough for 3rd place. The steady Ben Denham shot another rock solid 38 for 2nd but a visiting Yank called Alan Cole had other ideas. Great golf Alan, getting 39 points out here is a feather in your cap!
