Twenty golfers ventured out to greet
The Admiral and take on the challenge of Plutaluang, north and west nines from the yellow tees. Weather was on our side; sun
was out and a slight breeze kept the mercury down.
The course was in tip top condition and as usual the course was busy with quite a lot of golfers enjoying not only the great course that it is but the great price that we are charged. The greens have become a lot slicker than in the past, but played reasonably true considering the constant heavy traffic.
As per usual, the gnarly crabgrass lies took their toll on most of the field.
Two flights today catering for today’s numbers. A-flight saw John Edwards take first (by the countback system) with Keith Buchanan being the unlucky golfer losing the countback. Coming in third and again getting thru on a countback was Denis Steele.
B-flight saw Frank Riley come up trumps yet again, talking about leaving the best to last, well done, mate, it is always the cream that rises to the top. Second saw Tony Cook greeting the judges with Cavin Kenyon filling third spot.

Back at The Swan, we welcomed back John Edwards, Colm Lawlor, Glenn Henriksen, Rod Weekes and Gary Barker. Then we had to say goodbye Frank Riley, Eric Black, both returning to Australia, and Gerri Crilly also heading to Australia to do some business. We wish you all safe journeys. Travel safe.
