PSC Golf from The Growling Swan
Monday, April 27, Treasure Hill – Stableford
A small field headed out for today’s game and all were in high spirits. This is a lovely course, difficult in places with its tight fairways and other than the first four greens all the rest were in very good condition.
We were the only golfers on the course and I have to say it was great being able to cruise along at a steady pace. It was a very warm and humid day with little or no breeze for relief, however we were lucky enough to beat the early afternoon downpour.

Presentations were as per usual at the course with the three place getters being the only ones to shine today and some very average scores handed in. In saying that, on such a great course all had an enjoyable time and it always beats a day at work!
1st Jim Groves (14) 33pts
2nd Bill Steinman (14) 32pts
3rd Graham Rice (13) 29pts
Near Pins: Mark Stapleton, Rudy Reganase, Graham Rice.
Long Putts: Graham Rice, Bill Steinman.
Thursday, April 30, Greenwood – Monthly Mug/Stroke
Twenty golfers gathered at Greenwood for another day’s entertainment and today’s examinations were the C & A nines, in that order, from the white tees.
The weather was quite warm for the first stanza, however a brief shower and overcast conditions greeted us at the commencement of the second half, which cooled things somewhat. The course was in top condition with the greens being quite quick and putting truly.

Sal Brizzi (Mr Consistency) returned net 74 to take second spot whilst Graham Rice finished third on net 76 despite availing himself of a sustained session of complimentary Jack Daniels the previous evening.
In the B grade, Khan Speechley topped the podium with a net 73 whilst Stu Rifkin, playing on full throttle, relegated Lyndon Przyblski to third place, with both players having a net 74s.
