Pattana golf course has maintained the very good condition for many months now and today, as the ‘B’ nine is closed for more upgrading, we played the A and C combination, which includes the par 6.
At the first tee, the clouds were looking a little dark so not sure what the day would hold weatherwise.
However, as the day went on, those clouds became whiter and higher with no threat of rain. A number of players commented that it was quite hot, although there was a breeze for most of the round.
With the course in good condition, the scores coming in were right up there and about what we expected, or hoped for.
The winning score of 42 points, posted by Gary McLean, was way ahead of the rest.
Robert Cha, in just his second game with Links, scored 38 points to be in second place for the second time. A Green Jacket looks to be close.
Banjo Bannister, who plays with us sparingly, found some good form to score 37 points and take third spot on countback.
Chris Barker, liking his higher handicap, also scored a solid 37 points to lose that countback and hold fourth place.
Nigel Henson, is always consistent and returned 35 points here for the fifth place.
Wayne Peppernell rounded out the podium by winning a countback on 34 points ahead of Peter Kelly.
