Where Golf is the Winner

MATCH REPORT – Hawks Nest 16-17th March 2024

With the first of two traveler’s cups for 2024 arriving, 24 golfing enthusiast set off on a 2.5 hour trek North for most although Peter Thomas who lives a stones throw across the bay had to trek west North than East to join us thanks, Peter is now known as two meter Peter.

A lovely meal was enjoyed by most with a few ales to wash it down at the golf club!

We then headed back to the accommodation organized by Matt and Dan  a new house this year which seem to work better having 4 bathrooms helped, A for a few more beers and some footy to watch.

Saturday morning greeted us with a nice day for golf! 7am tee off and leading out the comp of the day an Irish Fourball. The breakfast was bacon & eggs cooked by Josh and Zac and overseen by D C Ashes.

The course was in good condition although the greens were slow after being recently cored but speed of play was good with a 4hr 10 minute round.

Winner on the day.

An afternoon of horses and footy and a few more beers although several tried to drink the ocean dry! This was found out Sunday morning with a few weary heads. Mrs Doubtfire who never ceases to amaze produced bacon and poached eggs to fill our bellies well cooked.
