With scores in the 40 point range golfers are finding the conditions quite easy at the moment. Handicaps are tumbling as the extra summer run and preferred lies help scores plummet. Scores this week reflect the conditions and of course some great form by members.
A reminder that the daylight saving competition is on every Wednesday afternoon up until 5.30pm and there is the social Phoenix golf social 9 holes every Friday afternoon.
So what happened last week on the course...
On Saturday January 19, 41 players hit off in round 3 of the Summer Cup. Bart Joseph took out A grade (round of the day) amassing a fine 43 points with Steve Young coming home with 41 points.
