Green valley in the dry


It is amazing how quickly grass picks up with just a little water and that is what happened for yesterday’s (Tuesday) rain certainly helped and the course is looking really good. But I question why the greens staff seems to do nothing to repair the damaged sprinkler heads causing ugly muddy areas which are then made worse with the heavy machines churning the area up? In the ladies competition there was some admirable performances with Miss Sasicha (21) coming 3rd with 40 points with 24 points on the front but 4 double bogies put paid to what could have been an outstanding score. The consistent Miss Nu (16) did the reverse with 23 points on the way home with four pars and one birdie but failed to overtake Miss Porn (22) on 41 points who had 7 pars in her round. The men’s scores were not as impressive – with one exception – with Selwyn Wegner (15) occupying 4th place with 34 points losing on a countback to John Locke (20) despite John having 6 double bogies. Wayne Cotterell (12) cannot avoid the limelight recently and featured yet again in 2nd place not only grabbing the headlines with 36 points but set a record for the Billabong having three 2s each of them threatening the hole and demanding a putt from Cottee of only 3 feet or less. Gareth Gill (8) recorded a very good 76 gross and 40 points to win the day and this included 5 birdies 3 of them consecutively from the 12th. Seven 2s today going to Miss Nu, Gareth, George Zadora, Selwyn and 3 to Cottee.
