Phoenix Gold

Another beautiful day for golf with a couple of people not being able to make it due to various reasons, but we did have 4 groups playing and were away a little early and around in under 4 hours, with a packed course, there were golfers everywhere on all 3 nine’s. We did have a laugh or two as the Capt was given an ear full for putting out a four ball of walkers out in the first group, he was told we are in carts so it was just mentioned try to keep up with them wont you it didn’t happen as there was a hole spare between them and the second group. There was a contingent of French players with us today all 7 of them if fact some were regulars at the Billabong the rest were friends which were welcomed by the usual team. The course was in great condition with some of the greens so fast it was scarey. There were two count backs the first one between Francis Goyons and Phillipe Chalnot both scoring 37 points with Francis missing out to the better back nine of Phillipe, taking third spot was George Barrie with a fine 39 points, another count back for 1st and 2nd between Jean Pierre Gasser and Ivor Smith ( Who needed the Leyland brothers to help find his ball on Ocean 5) both scoring 40 points, with Ivor taking the top spot and Jean Pierre taking second. There were 4 twos coming from Gerard Lambert, Glyn Davies, Jean Gasser and Steve Dodd his ball nearly landing in the hole.
