Pacific Game - 13 June 2010

Lord of the Pings

The Return of the King

The Dark Lord (George) is still atop his tower (the league table) coveting the crown he one day hopes will be his, however the return of last years champion Owen Wright (the King) and the ever reliable ever annoyingly good, Ian Smith, have cut into his lead.

It is now shaping up at this the halfway stage of the year as though we could be in a battle more ferocious than that at Helms Deep.

On a chill morning the Pacific course played as we expected it would (like crossing Mordor in the dark). It was very difficult and quite brutal (also dangerous for the poor group in front of us, sorry group 2 from group 3).

The cards indicated none of us had a really decent round, we will all have to re-group for Redcliffe to repair those dented prides.

The results were as follows:

NTP 13th – Rodney Topor

Mens long drive 18th – Rodney Topor (NB this may never happen again - ed)

Ladies long drive 18th – Karen Greedy

1st place on 31pts – Owen Wright

2nd place on 28pts – Ian Smith

3rd place on 26pts (on count back) – Paul Lockwood-Lee

Also on 26pts Mark Coster, who missed out on count back (strangely the count back was calculated by myself).

Many thanks to all who turned up to be thoroughly demoralised, hope to see you at Redcliffe on the 18th July.

Captain Paul.

Next game: 13 June at Pacific Golf Club

The next game for the year will be held on 13 June at Pacific Golf Club at 430 Pine Mountain Road, Carindale, off Creek Road.

Arrival time is 6:15am for tee-off at 6.30am. Sorry for the early start. The number of the Pro Shop at Pacific is 3343 9487.

Pacific is a long, hilly, and challenging course. Practice up. I hope Pacific members George and Owen will turn up to give us some local advice and show us the best way round.

Please let me know as soon as possible whether or not you will be playing at Pacific. If you say you are playing, and then discover you can't play, please let me or Paul know in advance.

I look forward to seeing you at Pacific and to a great day.
