The Backyard Golf Society
Sunny weather greeted us on our arrival at Emerald Golf Course for the weekly game of golf with the Backyard Golf Society. 8 players this week with 7 in all competitions and on arriving at the first tee our friendly starter was subject to severe abuse as he decided to put a five-ball out in front of us. Not the best thing to do with a bunch of hungover guys and I am guessing he will not be doing it again anytime in the near future!
For the third week in a row we had a withdrawal halfway into the round, this time it was Mike who suffered from an attack of stomach cramps; yet again no admission of alcohol abuse which leads me to wonder whether the society as a whole has a problem!

Back in the clubhouse and after suffering through our slowest round of the year it was nice to sit down, have a beer and find out who won the money.
Terry C. won the stableford competition on count back over Andy Oz with 33 points and the skin results were as follows: Kit (6), Terry C (4), John Mc (3), JJ (1), and Mike (1) with 3 rollovers for next week. Nearest the pin was also rolled over with no one managing to hit the green (maybe we all should have walked off!)
After prize giving everyone, apart from Mike, headed off to BC for a few beers and to commiserate with Darren as he heads back home on Sunday.
