Growling Frog - 22 February 2015

Captain's report

The day started off very warm with temperatures predicted to rise into the high 30’s.  Course looked good.  Fairways were in great condition and greens and tees maintained very well.  If you were on the fairways there were no complaints about a bad lie.  Unfortunately for me, being on the fringes or in the rough was my course of action, dry, hard, tough.  

 

The wind picked up early which made it difficult to not only get length but also direction.  Even though we had a couple of big hitters in my group, the drive and chip hole was a drive and fairway wood or long iron and still difficult to get to the green.  Other players’ experiences were different and short irons were used.  Lucky them!  Greens were true but a little slow were some of the comments.

We had a couple of phantoms on our feature holes, probably due to the split tees.  We will address this before the next game and hopefully resolve the issue.

 

Other comments about bunkers were that walls were too soft causing balls to plug and obviously kangaroo paws (and pooh) everywhere.  But we all had to contend with this.  The course gave nobody any favours.

 

Luckily there was cloud cover throughout most of the round, but when it cleared, the sun was blistering.  

Overall at the end, refreshments were well earned and enjoyed.

 

Congratulations to the winners and runners-up.  

 

Great results for a tough day!
