There were only 8 players and 2 flights today for our game today at the wonderful Templer Park kindly arranged by Kaz Takita.
We got off early at just after 8:00am and with the course being very quiet we made good time around the 18 holes. The course was in fine condition but as always a little tricky to conquer. We all finished by 12:30pm and had a nice lunch in the clubhouse after the game.
We had one interesting situation today at the Par 5 12th hole where Stuart Taylor hit his first drive right and it was maybe 50/50 so he hit a provisional ball which was ok in the fairway. On getting down to the point where his first ball may have been a ball was suddenly and miraculoulsy thrown down from the slope by a monkey! There was a troop of them sitting up there at the top of the hill. There was no way to determine wher the original ball may have been so Stuart had to play the ball as it lay which was below a small wiry bush just off the fairway making his 2nd shot rather difficult. he got away with a luck bogey on that hole aftre two-hitting out the bunker then chipping in!! Must train that monkey a but better to throw the ball ON to the fairway!!
The winner today was Stuart Taylor with a gross 87 (best of the day) for 35 points. Runner up was Siegmund Maierbrugger with 93 for 33 poimts. Full results below:
