Rain overnight softened the course and made some of the bunkers resemble water hazards, but the course remains in excellent condition otherwise.
Today we had six participants: five members and one friend, Ralph. We played our regular skins game from the blue tees (Ralph played form the white tees). Ralph will play one more round with us, on Thursday, before heading back to his other paradisiacal abode in Hawaii. Egbert is heading out tonight for Germany, returning after the new year.
Graham reported a dismal front nine, but he came on strong in the end, including a spectacular hit-the-pin approach and short putt for birdie to get five points on 18. That put him over the “real” 5Points by one point to win the stableford prize. Bruce G took closest on Hole 3 (if you can call 25+ feet “close”). No one hit the 7th green, and Egbert did the “Walk of Shame” on the 12th. That left the 17th worth three skins. Of course, Bruce G couldn’t pass up such a delectable opportunity, and thus he won all four closest skins. Has that ever happened before? Why, yes it has!
Here are the results:
- Winner: Graham (36 Points)
- Runner-Up: 5Points (35 Points)
Closest to the Pins:
- Hole 3: Bruce G
- Hole 7: No One
- Hole 12: No One (Egbert did the Walk of Shame)
- Hole 17: Bruce G (x3)
