A Nice back road trip



Although the road workers are doing their best to stop golfers reaching Green Valley via Route 36 it is worth the extra kilometres taking the back route to play a course that is in good condition on a beautiful, sunny day. The greens have recently been tined which made putting a little more difficult but these things must be done. It seems that the 1st hole is becoming a little easier for there were many birdies there today but the cream of the crop was Barry Copeskate who had an eagle for five points but, unfortunately for Barry, he was obviously overwhelmed with his success and it was downhill from there. Ivor Smith (24) might have expected better but 5th place with 34 points was down to him having disasters at the last two holes and losing out to Dougie Crowe (8) also on 34 points. Sel Wegner (14) had 3 birdies in his round for 35 points including a birdie on the 1st but it was a bit downhill through the next four holes for only 4 points. But even with his subsequent recovery he could not catch Peter Terry (19) with 36 points and 2nd place with 4 pars on the way home. Tony Oakes (14) was another to birdie the 1st hole but he should have had more than his 37 points but for 3 double bogies on the back nine. In the ladies Miss Phin (11) had 21 points on the front nine but four 1 pointers and a blob after the turn relegated her to 3rd place with 35 points 2 points short of Miss Eng (17) who was steady on the back nine with 8 bogies and 1 par. But Julie Battersby, on her return from New Zealand, had 6 pars on the way home to end up with 41 points for the best of the day. Only five 2s. today going to Miss Phin, Gareth Gill and 2 to Selwyn Wegner.

Phoenix Gold but very wet

Phoenix Gold today after the rain storm we had over the last week or so there were no carts off the cart paths which makes it for a not only hard day out for some but a long day also. We started with

Phoenix Gold today, the course was in great condition as usual and quite busy with a steady flow of golfers all around the course. With four groups playing it was quite a fast round with no holdups at
