Tropical Golf 28/04
Tuesday The 28th April 2015: Bangpra ( Stableford)
We must be into the Low Season as we are playing Bangpra, and we know we have great difficulty booking in in the morning in High Season as some of the visitors seem to take it over. But on this day we were off at 10 am so lets go for it.
We got away practically on time and as it was going to be hot we made the best time we could. The Course was in average condition as the fairways were a bit lumpy with grass in places and the greens were strangely not all the same pace. As we played the greens became quicker if anything and we can only put it down to them drying out as we went along.
The pace of play was quite good although as a 3 ball we were constantly waiting, but the rest of our groups who were 4 balls all considered the pace to be fine. Of course the answer is to play in a 4 ball if all around you are 4 balls. The heat also caused the walkers to struggle a little towards the end.
Round over it was a quick bite in the Restaurant and then back to BJ’s. We were actually nice and early and it was good that we could do the report a bit early. So in the A Flight, 0 to 17, the winner was Jock Brown with 36 points ahead of John Davis with 35 points in second and Bill Steinmann in third with 33 points. In the B Flight the winner was Graham Buckingham with 37 points ahead of Barry Elphick in second with 36 points and Henry Wong in third with 35 points.
Being the last Tuesday of the month, it was then time for the MBMG Group Golfer of the Month. With his fine showing on the last day the winner was Graham Buckingham, and this was very good as this was Grahams first Golfer of the Month. Seeing as we have ben running the MBMG Group Golfer of the Month for several years it is nice to see he has served his time and is a deserved winner. T.T.F.N.
