Fri 16th Oct – Greenwood B & C
Following the bright sunshine of Wednesday, it was back to dull overcast conditions again for Friday’s game at Greenwood where we were allocated the B & C nines. The course was fine till the seventh hole when the heavens opened and the rain poured down for about thirty minutes. Thereafter the course was very soggy and the earlier decision to play pick, clean, and place was justified.
As expected, the course played long and conditions were difficult. Remarkably the greens drained very quickly and were excellent for putting. The rough was wicked and anyone who strayed in there was severely punished. It was a case of getting out at the first attempt at all costs, otherwise, you were still in there for your next shot. It was no place for ambition.
Les Cobban took up where he laid off on Wednesday except that he brought the rest of his game, compiling a very good score of thirty-seven points to take first place. Second place went to Michael Brett on thirty-three points and Jay Babbin took third on thirty-one.
All the near pins were taken with Les Cobban taking two and one each to Jay Babbin and Michael Brett.
1st Les Cobban (8) 37 points
2nd Michael Brett (15) 33 points
3rd Jay Babbin (22) 31 points
