Despite high temperatures forecast for this afternoon the Easterly breeze caressed the Burra Golf Course with its cooling touch this morning providing idyllic conditions for the three players that turned out for a game. Three of our fancied players (at least they fancy themselves), colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson, Andy Phillips & Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel were otherwise engaged with Mid North Vets at Pt Hughes. Other members are encouraged to download the Bureau of Meteorology app to their phones so that they can see the hour by hour forecasts and take advantage of the cool mornings with which Burra is blessed.
The standard of golf was high despite the small field with Dick Cleland successful for the 2nd week in a row with 20 points. Eddie “The Flying Dutchman” Van Keulen was competitive yet again finishing runner up with 18 while Bob Taylor scored 17. There was no 2nd prize or Mars Bar awarded because of the small field.
