Brooks & Oats lead the way


PSC Golf from the Tropical Golf Group

Friday, July 17, Bangpra – Stableford

The Tropical Golf Group had a couple of treats last Friday.  The first was we were playing Bangpra – high on the list of favorite courses for most golfers.  The second treat was that it was fairly cloudy and cool most of the round with no threat of rain.  Who could ask for better than a great course in good weather?  So off 24 golfers went in search of glory.

Bangpra is a course usually in good condition, and it didn’t disappoint this day.  Fairways and greens were well tended.  The interesting layout makes sure this course is not a ‘grip it and rip it’ challenge, and anyone without some pre-shot thinking better be just plain lucky to have their name called after the round.  With 23 golfers we had two flights plus a bevy of technical prizes, and everyone was curious who would take advantage?

Barry Oats topped the B Flight (15+) standings with another fine round and 37 points while Graham Buckingham placed second on 33 and Kenny Chung completed the podium with 29.
