Hall battles the heat to take first at Burapha


Golf from the Blue Moose

Two foursomes teed off at the Burapha Golf Course this past 18th of April.  The course was in great shape and the weather was ‘Hot’.  Only two greens were recovering from airing but otherwise all greens were good.  If you didn’t hit the fairway, you were in big trouble.

While a cart path sized line went from the tee box to the fairway, you had to be lucky to hit on it.  On either side of the fairways was grass so dense that a short caddy could be lost in it.  Needless to say it resulted in numerous lost balls – the grass is that deep.

A few players broke out their umbrellas to ward off the sun.  Did I mention it was hot?  We played the C and D courses today.

Back at the Blue Moose the cards were tallied, Richard Hall came in with a 37 to take first place while Bruce Funk and Larry Emerson tied for second place with a 35 but Bruce took it on the count back.  The Blue Moose provided some snacks.  Everyone misses Caddy Shack II and Herbie’s vittles.
