The Growling Swan 05/11
Seventeen eager players gathered at The Growling Swan anticipating the challenge set out for them in today’s event. We were heading up the highway to play Crystal Bay one of our favorite courses. Weather wise it looked as though we were in for a good day; pleasant conditions greeted us and stayed with us all day.
We welcomed Fred Cuypers returning from his adventure to The USSR, some great stories and great photos. Unfortunately I was advised sometime later that Niall Stuart played his last game of golf for this trip, travel safe Niall we hope to see you soon.
The course was in good nick and from the white tees Alex Field showed a clean pair of heels to the rest of “The Field”. Cindy Lauper (Sandy Leiper) may have played his best game at The Swan coming in second with a fine score. Filling the other placing’s were Bill McGarvie and John Anderson who tied for third.
