Tropical Golf 06/03
Friday The 6th March 2015: Plutaluang ( Stableford) The ‘boys’ went off to play at the Navy Course on this day with a fair number of players, and after book in they were told they were to play the East and South Nines. Not most of the players favourite 18 holes but I have to admit it is my preferred 18 holes.
It seems we were playing this 18 holes as the other 18 holes had a Competition on it and the rest of the players seemed to have been funneled onto this 18 holes. We were late off and found the Course to be in reasonable condition, however the weather was great and all seemed fine with the world. Until we got half way and that was when groups started to force their way in. To be fair when the situation was explained to the Starter he came and sorted it out, but it is a problem that often rears it’s head here.
This meant that most of the players were late getting back BJ’s. after a long round, and the results were late. The winner in the A Flight, 0 to 16, was Landis Brooks with 36 points on countback over Bob Watson in second. Bob will have to do better than a Gross 75 if he wants to win. In third was Tom Marshall with 35 points. In the B Flight the winner was Brian Gabe with the best score of the day and 40 points. In second was Andre Van Dyk with 36 points and in third was Kurt Ebentheuer with 34 points. T.T.F.N.
