Michael a clear winner at Crystal Bay


PSC Golf from The Caddy Shack

Tuesday, March 10, Crystal Bay – Stableford

Tuesday saw us visit Crystal Bay, with the A & C combination from the white tees at about 6450 yards our test of the day.  The course represents ok value, with the fairways well grassed, while the fringes are very dry, but the plus is they do provide plenty of run.  The greens are patchy, with various types of grasses making it difficult to get a true running putt.  The day was clear with a light breeze, so all in all a good day for golf.  

Michael Proebsting (h/cap 34) showed the way home with a solid 37 points, while best of the rest was Jeff Wylie (7) with 33 points.  Rick Culley got the near pin on C7, while Michael made a nice birdie 2 on A8.

Thursday, March 12, Phoenix – Stableford

After some negative reports on our scheduled venue of Wangjuntr, we made a last minute adjustment to Phoenix, with the Mountain & Lakes 9s from the whites at near 6300 yards our test.  The weather is starting to heat up, and only a light breeze was blowing to keep the humidity down, so keeping the hydration up was paramount.

It has been a good while since visiting Phoenix, and while the Mountain 9 was in good condition, the Lakes first few greens were only in moderate condition.  The fairways throughout the course were in good condition, providing some run out, but also good lies for approach shots.

Jeff Wylie (7) with 38 points led the way home, while Jason Barnett (4) got second spot with a well compiled 37 points.  Sean Soden (26) got the bronze medal position with 36.  Near pins meanwhile went to Jason & Jeff.
