Fri. Aug. 28th Emerald
Our biggest group since the resumption of golf, our number swelled by the addition of a couple of newcomers. The course was pretty much as expected, the fairways were fine, the greens improved since our last visit and the bunkers ok, so no excuses today. The day was fine but a bit hot with very little breeze so conditions were just about right.
Another society arrived at the course at just about the same time as us so the starter wisely put them out on the back nine thereby avoiding any holdups.
Geoff Cox topped the field with a respectable thirty-seven. Geoff Parker was two back in second place and Jimmy Carr edged out Michael Brett on countback to take third on thirty-four.
Tony Robbins looked like cruising to victory again but crashed and burned from the sixteenth onwards. Three near pins going to Tony Plummer, Les Cobban, & Michael Brett.
We now have four Geoff’s in our ranks except that one spells his name with a J just to avoid confusion. If we are not careful, we could end up like the Bruces from Monty Python.
1st Geoff Cox (16) 37 points
2nd Geoff Parker (18) 35 points
3rd Jimmy Carr (16) 34 points
Near pins Les Cobban, Tony Plummer, & Michael Brett.
