Phoenix with all the alterations going on in the club rooms there is very inconvenience to the players, and what it will be like when finished will be as good as the facilities in any golf club anywhere. The course was in great condition although the greens on the Lake loop were a little slow, but Ocean made up for it. The Mountain and Ocean loops are going to be the Ladies open will be played on starting on the 20th of this month. There was just a small team again today but it was an enjoyable day out apart from a little hot in some parts of the course. The scoring was very good with Lloyd Shuttleworth taking 3rd place with 38 points, that’s 75 gross, 2nd went to Gentleman George Barrie just back from Basra shooting 40 points but the day belonged to A J Breazly with a 77 off the stick scoring 42 points off his 11 handicap, great golf mate. We are of the opinion that there is a 27 hole champion ship golf course somewhere on the out skirts of Basra as both George and Lloyd came home and took the rest of us to the cleaners supposedly not having seen a golf club for 6 weeks.
