GROWLING SWAN-EASTERN STAR – MONDAY 1st OCTOBER,2018
GROWLING SWAN-EASTERN STAR – MONDAY 1st OCTOBER,2018.
“WELL DONE MARTIN.”
Two buses and a couple of cars ferried today’s golfers to this lovely course. The trip itself was uneventful. Plenty of overnight rain left punters worried that carts would not be allowed on the course but despite a heavy ground, they were. Thus playing conditions were in our favor! Lift Clean & Place was the order of the day!
We played from the yellow tees and the starter decided to send us from the 10th thus playing the back nine first. For the life of me this I do not understand (Thai Logic) we had a booked tee time of 10.24 but we were sent off well before 10.00, now this is where the confusion (not confuses) begins. Two groups that had a 10 am booking turn so the starter sends them off from the 10th. Now we have had two groups teed off and two groups waiting to tee off! My god where is the logic, we will now tee off at the allotted time for us and at no other time!!!!!!.
Something needs to be done about the starters at some courses. You book your time and you travel to cover that time!
Now with the times being cocked and the last two of our groups being delayed, they did not get to finish their rounds as the rain had hit and it was impossible to finish! We say thank you to the starter at Eastern Star.
Well it was Martin Kempton that took the prize today beating his playing partner Denis Steele by a single point. Second and third both returned with the same scores, this was to sorted by the count back system. Lorraine Percy got Tony Cook for second!
