The City Golf monthly outdoor game was held at Impian Golf and Country Club on Friday the 11th May. What a golf course!! Before playing the course I had heard some great things about it, and the rumours were true. The fairways were immaculate, and even though the greens had just been hollow-tined they were very playable (although a touch on the slow side)
Unfortunately we had a few players withdraw at the last minute which is always disappointing, but 8 of us still teed it up to do battle with the challenging layout.
We played the usual individual stableford format, and even with this friendly format the boys struggled!
I managed to sneak away with the win on a pretty dismal score of 34 points. I must add that I hit 15 of 18 greens, so putting was certainly not my strong point. To give you an even better idea of how bad my putting was, I had three 3-putt pars on the Par 5’s. Not ideal. Tom Sarginson and Guilherme Mendes were tied second on 33 points, with Kevan Bartley finishing 3rd on 32 points.
A big thank you again to Vasu from Srixon/Cleveland golf for the sponsored Srixon Z-Star ball prizes.
The next game is going to be at Templer Park. Date to be confirmed.
Cheers for now!
