The Backyard Golf Society
The Backyard lads enjoyed another good day out at Emerald last Friday, Oct. 31. With so much rain around lately the course was actually in very good condition with no need for ‘pick-and-place’ as on some other courses. Unfortunately the wet weather has meant that the rough has been growing steadily with no possibility to cut it back, but then again we should not be in the rough, should we!
The winner of the main competition on the day was The Impregnator with a very good score of 39 points. Amazing what a couple of extra shots on the old handicap will do for your score. The near-pin went to Irish John on the par 3, 15th green.

The Biss won 8 skins in the first 9 holes, with Mr. Oddie taking the other one before the turn, The Impregnator won 7 on the back 9 and we have 2 rolled over to next week’s game.
It was welcome back to Second-hand Bob for another silver-selling trip and a few rounds of golf. Boo and the man were re-united and cooing noises were reported by the other players in Bob’s group. The Yak somehow lost his caddy at the 9th hole, but only after she cleverly got him to buy her a drink. No one is sure what happened to her but off she went.
After a torrential cloud-burst we finally made our way down the road and to the new Featuring Bar where The Big Apple and Bun carried on the tradition of discounting the grog for those wearing the group logo. The Impregnator decided to check out the dancing pole as the accompanying photo shows. Mr. Quiet has been doing a roaring trade in the football squares with the lasses actually asking to sign up for a change.
