The Growler

Saturday started off with us sitting in the car in the carpark thinking” What the hell are we doing here???”. It was raining & cold, but at least it wasn’t windy. I had to mention that didn’t I!!! About 10 seconds later the wind started to pick up & was soon blowing a gale. We all agreed that if we didn’t prepay for the round we would have turned around & gone home, which I guess is one of the reasons they make you prepay.

Daryl Stan & I braved the inclement weather & teed off into the teeth of the wind with the raining falling thinking this is going to be a long, long day.

Thankfully the rain didn’t continue falling much after the 3rd or 4th hole, but unfortunately the wind did persist for the rest of the day.

The course is fantastic condition, the fairways are lush & the green were firm & rolled true. I love the greens here at Growling Frog, you have to use your imagination to get the ball in or near the hole. The bunkers were effected by the rain, making them hard & compact but you can see that without the rain they would be good quality, which is good because there is a hell of a lot of them.

In the end all of our scores suffered from the conditions so best not to mention them here ; ) I really enjoyed playing this course again & would like to come back again with better playing conditions.

    Ah, but we all had fun didn’t we. Being a links course, the wind certainly made our round difficult. And Cary is right about the greens … none of them are flat and positioning is the key. I’ll fess up — I scored a 62 on the front including an 8 on a Par3. The run home was a little better with a 54. I believe that I pipped Stan at the post by 1 shot 😉
