Friday, June 5th – Greenwood B & A
A good message to all golf courses, keep your course in good condition and green fees reasonable and people will come to play. Today we had our biggest group since golf opened up again, in fact, all our resident golfers with the exception of the Brown Snake were on hand. An unseasonally cool, overcast cloudy day for our last game of the week at Greenwood where we were allocated the B & A nines. Rain threatened several times but the most we got was a bit of drizzle. With the benefit of hindsight, we should have played pick, clean, and place as overnight rain made the course soggy in places and mud balls were common.
Today’s winner, not the lone ranger, but Les Cobban.
After topping the score sheet for the past three games Steve Durey was not in his customary position today and missed out completely. Les Cobban played inspired golf to top the list today with an excellent thirty-nine of an eight handicap. Second and third places were just the same as Monday and Wednesday with Michael Brett playing bridesmaid in second place and Geoff Parker in third, Geoff hasn’t topped the winner’s list for some time but given his current form, the wait is nearly over.
Bridesmaid of the week Michael Brett
1st Les Cobban (8) 39 points
2nd Michael Brett (15) 35 points
3rd Geoff Parker (18) 32 points
