Greenwood – S’ford
After our last trip up the 331 it was with some trepidation that 20 hopefuls met at our golfing home, The BJ Holiday Lodge, for breakfast and transport arrangements for the days outing to Greenwood. Not only were we thinking of long stretches of road works underway on Hwy 331, there was a light drizzle. However, off we went and by the time we reached the course the rain had all but stopped and the sky was looking promising.. Check in was swift and all enjoyed the special packages currently on offer, 1,150 B with a cart or 950 B to walk.
So under clearing skies we were soon off to negotiate our way around the well manicured, but wet “B” and “C” nines. With no carts allowed on the fairways and ‘Ball-in-Hand’ in effect the longer white tees were selected. With little or no roll on the fairways and greens running at a good speed, the course had the advantage his day. Now, would the golfers take the challenge of the long and wet conditions and turn in some respectable scores? Play moved along at a reasonable pace and soon all cards were in, the transport loaded up and back through the road construction and Friday holiday traffic to BJ’s for a late lunch and the results.
With two flights split at handicap 18, and considering the conditions, we certainly did have respectable scores. Congratulations to both Landis Brooks(9) and recent returnee, Torsten Bischoff(31) for turning in the best of the day for their respective flights.
