Finally a dry course to play on, Phoenix Gold was in great condition both Mountain and Ocean loops were as dry as a bone, before we teed off the question was asked do we use winter rules and it was decided to do so although apart from one or two times it wasn’t necessary at all. It was a beautiful day for golf with just a little high cloud and a nice breeze. We thought today we had the French connection under control with the man of the moment Thiery Petrement not having his usual day out,when everything goes where you want it to, well his good friend Gerard Lambert took over from him in the prize’s scoring a nice 34 points to take second spot, Skip Jefferies had his day in the sun scoring 15 points on the front nine and 25 on the back for 40 points to take the top spot. There was only one two coming from a perfect shot into the 8th hole by Brian Chapman. Don’t forget the 14th of November the Bangkok Beatles are coming to the Billabong so come along for a great night out.
