Green Valley




The general opinion of those that have played recently is that Green Valley has never been seen in such a bad condition. Eighteen small emerald green oasis are dotted around the course nestling in, what will soon be, a desert for it is obvious that the irrigation system needs replacing to be brought into the 21st century. Perhaps they have never heard of computers for it is absurd to see staff, occasionally, having to walk around the course turning on the sprinklers, at least those that work, in the heat of the day. The reports that were expressed to Capt. Bob persuaded him to allow a free drop when the ball ended in an area where grass no longer existed, and there were many. In the men’s competition, Jim Grieves (25) owed his 36 points to three 4 pointers on the back nine for 4th place 1 point behind Dale Adamson (7) who eagled the 12th for 5 points and a birdie on the 4th for 4 points for a total of 37 points and 3rd place. Jez Lees (20) not climbing Everest or being chased by bulls at the moment, had 37 points and 2nd place. But the star of the day was Sandy Chapo (21) 18 points at the turn followed by a blob on the 10th ended with a flourish scoring 23 points in the next 8 holes which included a 5 and a 4 pointer for 41 points. He also had the only 2 on the 16th. Miss Sasicha (21) stumbled on the way home for 14 points and a total of 35 one point behind Miss Phin (10) in 2nd place which included 10 pars but the consistent Miss May (11) dropped only 4 shots on the front nine and 13 pars helped her to 38 points for 1st place.
