PSC golf from Tropical Bert’s
Tuesday, March 19, Mountain Shadow – Stableford
This course has become a standard on the Tuesday listings and we usually go there once a month. The players all like it so on this day we had a good turnout.
After arriving there, it was a very quick change and down to the start. Being a bit late I told our three-ball to go on ahead and tee off first, that they did, so to follow them we played off the white tees, or ‘Mickey Mouse Tees’, so we expected to have some good scores.
The course was in its normal good condition and we did not find the trees too often. The greens were very good, but not as tricky as they used to be, and this made for a decent day putting. We did have quite a bit of wind, but it is expected here.
Tuesday winners – Brian Parish & Steve Compton.
Round over it was back to Bert’s for the results. In the A Flight, 0 to 18, the winner was Brian Parish with 40 points ahead of Keichi Kasami in second with 38 points. In third we had Mark West with 37 points and we had a four-way count back on 36 points that saw Mashi Kaneta in fourth and Landis Brooks, Mike Jackson and Richard Kubicki just missing out.
In the B Flight, Steve Compton won with 40 points, a fine 25 points on the back nine, ahead of a count back on 36 points that saw Dick Warberg in second and Rita Zoebeli in third. In fourth was Jim Ferris with 35 points on count back over Max Bracegirdle.
