Three buses and a couple of cars ferried today’s golfers, well it’s been a while since we have had these numbers thus the transport.

Crystal Bay was our destination and we played from the white tees and the rain that we had had the night before was evident, but the course was in good shape (considering the rains).

With today’s numbers we were able to play two flights with three places in each. Also had all novelties in play!

A-Flight saw the big guns battle it out with Jayson Moylan beating the rest of the field home by a good 3 points. Following was the ever-reliable Keith Buchanan, being hotly pursued by Bill “Shooter” McGarvie on his return game at The Swan.

Our resident co-organiser took first place in B-Flight after taking care of Francis Tan (another Canadian new comer) via the countback system; both golfers returned 38 points, with Alex’s back nine better than Francis’s. Finishing third and still in the money was Brendan Moylan

With a bigger contingent than last month we headed to the mountain, Mountain Shadow, and all were eager to have a crack at the October Monthly Mug.

With all the rain that we had had this course was still in tip-top condition, bus chatter was all about carts on course and would they be allowed. Well they were allowed to the delight of all and sundry. We did play ‘lift, clean & place’ as some areas were a little wet.

Mt. Shadow was in great nick with plush fairways, greens were true and clean bunkers. There were no hold-ups as yet again the course was empty.

We had seventeen golfers, thus playing the one flight only, all novelties would be in play also.

Patrick Poussier is our stroke play champion and it was net 69 that gave Patrick his third Mug, a great effort and I am sure that he has not finished at three. Second went to the countback with Alex Field (net 70) tipping Glenn Henriksen (also net 70) back to third spot. Finishing off the podium positions was Colin Stielow who finished with net 71.
