Mon 12th Oct – Bangpra
Bangpra Golf course has been in top class condition pretty much since we came back to golf. A lot of rain recently has left the course wet and obviously difficult for the mowers, so the grass on the fairways, and rough, was a little longer than normal.
The carts stayed on the path and, as there was almost no run, we played lift, clean and place. A good thing too, as there were lots of mud balls.
The greens are still very good and running truly but, because they are wet, slower than we have known.
Mike Tottenham pipped Huw Phillips on countback to take the top step on the podium
History almost repeated when Huw Phillips handed in a score of 35 points. He won here last time but on this occasion was pipped by a playing partner in Mike Tottenham, who had the same score but won the countback.
Bill Copeland finished second to Huw back then and was in the placings again with his 32 points to take third spot.
Craig Webster seems to be in the picture regularly and has grabbed the final place on the podium with 31 points.
