Millionaire’s golf at Silky Oak


The Billabong Bar Golf Society

Wednesday, May 29, Silky Oak – Stableford

Having not played Silky Oak for probably 12 months or more, it was great to be out there on such a nice golf course.  A bit sad though that the greens had been verticut a few days before but every course has to do maintenance at sometime or other. 

It was another day of millionaire golf as the course was practically empty, and some like Paul Bourke and Paul Greenaway had not played here before and enjoyed their day out.  We decided to play from the white tees as some players, who shall remain nameless, would not have made it over the water on some of the holes.

The scores were not fantastic, even playing from the forward tees, but Brian Maddox won the day with 36 points ahead of his good mate John Player, who managed 35.  Taking third place on a count back over Capt. Bob was David Hausman with 34 points.

There were three ‘2’s today coming from David Hausman, Bob Philp and John Player.

Friday, May 31, Silky Oak – Stableford

Twice this week we have played Silky Oak and even though the greens were a little tough to putt on, the rest of the course was in great shape and once again there was virtually nobody else on the course.

Good to see our mate Daryl White back playing golf, not having played for a few months due to a bad back, and some shots over the water were a little difficult for him to say the least but with perseverance he managed.

The winner today was Jimmy Middleton with a fine 36 points and coming in second was Capt. Bob with 34.  There were no ‘2’s recorded today.

Note:  If you are looking for a game with some friendly golfers, give Bob a call on 082 204 3411 or call into the bar – we are just off Siam Country Club Road looking straight down Lake Mabprachan.
