Golf for all at The Outback Golf BarSunday, Sept. 13, Phoenix – StablefordAs we continue to bring the widest choices of playing options to our esteemed pundits, our weekend golf is picking up momentum on Sundays at Phoenix, and we are starting to see a growing interest from regulars and tourists alike. Special thanks goes to Greg Hirst from the DeVere Group who is organizing players from his customer base to help us promote our Pot and Skins weekly theme.For the match on 13 Sept, a couple of us decided to play off the blue tees, and the course played long with some blue tee boxes as far as 60 yards behind the whites. Generally, the blues were right back, whilst the white tees were a mixture of normal and forward tees. Nonetheless, we braved it out, and a great birdie by Carl Sellick (playing blue tees) on the 18th hole helped him to win the majority of the skins money on offer.Eddy Beilby. The day’s pot winner and a few good skins went to newcomer Vic Hester (playing from white tees), who thoroughly enjoyed the event and we he will become a regular Sunday player.If you would like to enroll for weekend golf with the Outback at Phoenix on a great weekend package rate, give Andre a call on the number listed at the end of this report.1st Vic Hester (13) 33pts2nd Andre Coetzee (08) 28pts3rd David Day (14) 27ptsMonday, Sept. 14, Burapha – StablefordWhile Tim was out of action with a bad knee the reports from Sugar Ray and Brad were that C and D were in top condition.

As it happened, there were not many complaints from the players, apart from the greens being a little slow for Bangpra conditions (go figure that!)Scoring was on the low side due to the conditions, apart from Eddie Beilby, who held his turf in the wet conditions pretty well and finished with a great 36 points.

But the critical thing is our place is confirmed for Hangzhou 2022 and that’s a very positive outcome for us.”This pathbreaking development will increase the sporting ties between the Oceanian and the Asian nations profoundly.Advertisement Advertisement
