Tropical Bert’s 26/08
Tuesday The 26th: Green wood ( Stableford) Well it was a Tuesday and we went to the Golf Course and it rained. So we got wet, finished the round and went back to Bert’s. Oh Yes the Course was really good. You know when all is said and done that is all it is really. However we all know that is not what the day is all about.
It is about meeting with a group of friends and going out with them to have a great day out. It is about the whole experience from meeting at Bert’s and the smell of coffee as some also some partake in a Tropical Bert’s Golfers Break fast, then the day starts.
It is about a really good Course that on this day was in really good condition with greens that were fast and true even thought the rain not only slowed them down but put the best part of an hour in to the day, as we all dove to find cover. Fortunately for us after nine holes. Even the rain break added to the day as the large group in the rest stop laughed and joke the whole time.
Sitting In the restaurant all was well as the results came in until one score was seen to be so far in front of the rest.
So back at Bert’s it was soon time to declare the results, not forgetting that this was also the last Tuesday of the month and it was time for The MBMG Golfer of the Month.
Winner on the day Doug Maiko with 44 points. with Barry Elphick in second with 39 points another fine round. In third was Mark West with 36 points and in fourth was ‘The Warberger’ with 35 points.
So the winner of the MBMG Group Player of the Month was Doug Maiko well done Doug.Then came the hard work of trying to get him to buy the ‘Organiser’ a beer for all his hard work.
