Landis Brooks and George King Conquer Mountain Shadow
It was a bustling morning at BJ’s Holiday Lodge as a full roster of 31 golfers assembled for food, caffeine, and ride assignments. The destination was Mountain Shadow, and despite the large group there were cars for all.
Mountain Shadow is a fairly tough course as we will see from the scores. Overall condition is fair to good, with a few too many dry fairway areas, and greens in pretty good condition. Someday they might prime and paint the pyramid at the entrance doing wonders for the welcome impression. The course was busy this day with several groups and tours playing, but the pace of play was acceptable for such a busy day. With so many golfers it would be hard to get mentioned, but some made the climb!
A-Flight (0-17): Landis Brooks (h’cap 8) has been Mr. Consistent lately and was again with a fine 35 points besting A-Flight. Brian Parish (12) was close behind with 34, and Maurice Roberts (11) won on count-back over colorful Walter Baechli (17) at 32 points.
B-Flight (18+): George King (24) had the best score of the day with 36 points. Congrats George on your first win! Next came Graham Buckingham (25) earning a fine 35 points using his unique swing, with Mick Coghlan (22) and Barry Oats (22) close behind at 34. Cheers to all!
