After dwindling numbers the last two weeks it was nice to get back to serious competition between the Backyard boys at Emerald Golf Course.  We have said goodbye to John Mac (who’s colorful language will be missed by all) and welcomed back Geoff and Russell.

With the sanding of the greens on the back 9 holes it made for a very quiet golf course so we got away early and had a nice leisurely round.  Back in the club house for prize giving and Geoff was pleasantly surprised after he found out he had won with 35 points.  Not bad for a guy who has not picked up a club for two and a half months.

No one managed to hit the green for the nearest the pin prize and the skin results were as follows: Geoff (7), Terry C (5), Neville (3), Martyn (2), and one rollover for next week.

As usual it was down to Ban Chang for a few beers and best of luck to the 2 new ventures YoYo and Happy Bar 2 from all the boys at the Backyard Golf Society.
