The Backyard Golf Society
Alan’s 60th birthday bash started with the heavens opening up at the Emerald Golf Course on Friday, July 1. We all hid in the club house sheltering from the rain for about an hour and a half until the weather subsided into a drizzle. We decided we had to go for it so we all set off in a collection of garish outfits (Alan’s idea to brighten up the day).
It was extremely heavy going and after 9 holes everybody came in soaking wet apart from 3 hardy souls who went on to do the full 18. Afterwards everybody adjourned to Ban Chang where Alan presented a number of wonderful golf prizes that he had donated for the day.
The garishly attired golfers assemble for a group photo at Emerald.
Top scorer of the day was Tony D, with Neville coming in a close second followed by Harry V in third and ‘Broken Wing’ fourth. ‘Broken Wing’ also got a special prize of an Odyssey putter for the worst/best outfit of the day.
A special thanks to Tip at Mama’s Bar for a great buffet, especially the ribs and lastly a big thank you to Alan for putting on a great day.
