With course closures and lockdowns virtually bringing organised golf to a standstill this year, it was a credit to Ian T that a welcome day of golf took place at Pine Ridge. Not a high turnout but, given the recent weather, the course was very playable. John F managed to escape the destructive clutches of his new Rhodesian ridgeback puppy and, as it wasn’t raining, was happy to play.
In an attempt to contend, Peter C enlisted the help of a crow to pick up his ball and move it close to the hole on the 6th.!. Eventually however, in a tightly fought battle, the two top scores were 36 points, with Nej winning on countback.
Later in December, two Bunkers teams took part in a Christmas Fun Day at the Drift - Luke, Ian D, John T, James, Ian T, Chris T, Colin & Frazer.
With the course sadly resembling quicksand in some areas of the fairways, the greens thankfully were in great condition. The longer hitters benefited from the extra distance as there was no roll at all.
Eventually both teams prevailed, coming 1st and 2nd ahead of the 16 other teams. John T, to his surprise, also won one of the two nearest pin prizes on offer.
With a Tier 4 lockdown now in place, the chances for further games this year is zero, but we look forward to staying healthy and playing regularly again when possible.
