Mon 19th Oct – Pattavia
Yet another grey overcast day for the first game of the week at Pattavia. As we drove in the course looked very quiet with nobody in sight. As always, the course was in very nice condition with no need for the pick, clean, and place to be applied. The bunkers were well raked, the tee boxes had recently been mowed, and the greens were a nice even speed.
We teed off on an empty course but quickly our first group ran up against a six-ball which slowed everyone down until the second par three when the marshal made the six-ball sit it out until all our groups were through, both surprising and unusual.
Thereafter play was at a good pace all the way to the end. After a disastrous start with one point after three holes, Michael Brett staged something of a recovery to accumulate thirty-four points and take third place with thirty-four points, twenty on the back nine. Jimmy Carr edged out Dave Ashman for first place on countback. A good day for Michael Brett on the par threes taking three near pins with Geoff Cox taking the remaining pin.
After the game, some of our members carried on up hwy 331 to Kabinburi for a two-day event including a Texas scramble on day one. All are high handicappers with a combined handicap of seventeen, so we are expecting big things from them.
1st Jimmy Carr (20) 35 points
2nd Dave Ashman (22) 35 points
3rd Michael Brett (15) 34 points
Near pins Geoff Cox, & Michael Brett X 3.
