The Growling Swan 20/05
Wangjuntr : Three person Scamble
Wes, Tony and Mike get the Biscuits
Nine hardy souls made the midweek trek for our first look at the Jungle course with badinage in abundance.
Wes Rado from Jurien Bay in Western Australia was welcomed.
The course was very picturesque and in superb condition.
Nearing the eleventh green the heavens opened up and thirty plus people sought shelter in the large drink hut nearby.
A Thai gentleman caddy opened his back pack, pulled out a bowl of chicken and rice and proceeded to hook into it big time.
One farang said “aroy”.
Caddy response in English “delicious thank you and I appreciate your enquiry”
One hour later play resumed and as per usual the greens were totally devoid of water.
Wes Rado produced a brand of long hitting not seen in many moons with our outlet.
On the five hundred and forty one yard par five fourth, he pulled the big dog out of the holster and let her rip.
Then hit another driver off the floor to finish pin high for two and lipped out with the twenty five yard chip for an eagle, phew.
Playing from a handicap of 10.50 Wes, Tony Campbell and Mike Gosden shot seventy one off the rod for a nett 60.50 which proved good enough to win.
Glowing comments from a contented bunch confirmed we’ll do a return trip in the future.
Deefa was once again on hand to collect donations from the players.
