With only the one bus to take the trek, it was loaded and left the Growling Swan a little earlier than the scheduled 8:30 am departure time and all golfers were keen as mustard to tackle this great course.
We were playing today from the white tees. This has been the preferred option for our golfers. The weather was as good as one could hope for at this time of the year with overcast skies keeping the temperatures cool and sun cream savings were happily made.
Pattavia is a great course and with the pricing that is being offered it is becoming quite popular. As it turned out we were ushered to the 10th tee to start the ball rolling! The condition of the course was up to a very good standard and as usual the greens were true but quite tricky! Three putts were not uncommon and was probably the main denominator of the mostly over par scores.
Mike Johns continued on with his fine form returning with 42 points. It is amazing what a quick swim in one of the many ponds on our fine courses has done to his golfing prowess. Coming in second was Denis Steele a consistent golfer with us, with John Claude, continuing on his fine form, filling the third spot on the podium.
