Wed 30th Sept – Treasure Hill
Treasure Hill was the venue for the last game of the month. Having played off the yellow tees on our last visit, a decision which proved to be a mistake as they had been pushed forward quite a bit, Wednesday we played of the whites which made it a completely different course. As always, the course was in fine condition but as it seems with all courses since lockdown the greens were very slow.
Also, a recent feature of just about all courses is the state of the rough which has been allowed to grow up to such an extent that it is now hard to find a ball in there let alone play from it. Just dig it out as best you can. Also, at Treasure Hill, the greenkeeper has allowed the rough to narrow the fairways making it a very tight driving course.
Only ten people had registered prior to the Bunker Boys tee-off time so just about all courses are in a struggle to survive with the immediate future prospects not looking too rosy either.
Jimmy Carr took first with the only semi-respectable score of the day of thirty-three points. Geoff Parker took second with twenty-seven and Geoff Atwell third on twenty-four. Geoff Parker got the only two near pins of the day.
Golfer of the Month Michael Brett.
As it was the last game of the month it was once again time to find golfer of the month and this month at least the search was easy. Having not played the last four games of the month due to illness, Michael Brett had already accrued enough points to hold off any would-be challengers. Fortunately for him, nobody did challenge so he was duly crowned golfer of the month for September, his third of the year. It seems unlikely he can win again as he has lost three strokes to handicap so we should see a new winner next month.
