Lockdown looms over golfers

Warburton Golf Course.

By Ron Hottes

With a lockdown looming, the Wednesday field went out oblivious to the developments that were about to impact upon us in the next 36 hours! A small field tackled a damp track, with the sole intention of scoring something reasonable.

The only genuinely reasonable score came from Kevin Conway, who ironically posted his best round for some time. His fairly impressive 39 points earned him a voucher and bragging rights.

Mick Eldridge snared the runner-up voucher with 34 points. At that stage, his playing partners, including Your Loyal Scribe, suggested that he might get a ball, but the ball rundown extended to 32, which meant Y.L.S. got one, too!

The NTP winners were also few and far between. Paul Long got one on the 3rd, making him a back-to-back NTP winner there. Happy Gilmore had a purple patch in his round, with NTP’s on both the 9th and the 12th. Finally, that ageless veteran of the club, Alan Johnston, snared one for a lovely second shot on the 11th.

Fellow golfers, I hope you are reading my next report in next week’s edition, as that will mean we are back.
