Phoenix Gold

The word going round is there is no high season this year, well if the golf courses we play on are any indication that information cant be right. The Billabong played Phoenix Gold today on Ocean and Mountain loops and all three of the nines were packed tight with golfers of all persuasions and the golf just flowed along with no holdups at all. The course was in great condition although the greens had been lightly sanded and were a little slower than normal, on hindsight maybe we should have played lift clean and place as the course was a little wet in some places, but we all played the same course and the scoring wasn’t too bad. Apart from Captain Cripple and Jimmy Jarvis everyone scored in the high 20s. Thankfully there was a lot of high cloud to keep the heat out and make it a good day for golf. There was a count back for the minor placing’s Between Gerard Lambert and Barry Lewis both scoring 35 points with Barry taking 4th and Gerard taking 5th Jerry Grocott took 3rd place with 36 points, John Locke took 2nd with 37 points and Bob Van Mol took line honours with a fine 39 points and promptly rang the bell for drinks all round. Strangely enough there were no two’s recorded.
