Martyn gives a tip


The Backyard Golf Society

The Backyard golfers can report on a very enjoyable 18 holes at Emerald last Friday.  Amazingly we hardly saw any other golfers on the course, which is surprising at this time of year.  The course continues to improve each week despite the efforts of the staff to mess it up.

Just the 8 players in all competitions with JJ winning the stableford with 35 points, beating Martyn on count-back with a better back nine.  The near-pin went to Golden Trowel’s boyfriend which included a roll-over from our previous outing.

Second-hand Bob won the most skins with 7, quite a feat considering he managed a near-record (Dangle still holds the all time highest total) 11 blobs and only scored 18 points overall.  4 skins each went to JJ and Irish John, with 1 each to Mike the Taxi, Tel and Golden Trowel’s boyfriend.

We then adjourned to a few quite bars down the road for a few well earned drinks.  The tranquility was shattered in Kisses Bar when all the girls started cheering Martyn.  Apparently said man gave a tip to Nit, the first time any of the bars had seen such an act on Martyn’s part, so well worth a mention.

Second-hand Bob deserves another mention for his stunning white shirt, something we thought we had seen the end of due to the tendency for “evidence” to show up!  George in Kisses was looking very well and the latest piece of work on the chassis seems to be to everyone’s liking.
