Rain, then 40 minute lightning delay, restart then more rain, then lightning alarm again as we finished. Really heavy conditions meant none of our four managed a decent score. In fact, two scores of 26 and two of 27, and I was one of the latter.

 

Got the money though, so all good. :)

Course was in great condition

They were not blisteringly fast........far from it!

 

Well, they were faster than Langy's practice green.  Any ball that was still moving when it got to the green went off the far side and nothing would stop any downhill putt except the hole.

I would never believe that a putt that was still moving at the edge of the green went off the side of the green!!!!  Maybe you should not hit the putts so hard that they get to that position

 

our groups had no issue with down hill putts running too far

Any softer and the kikuyu stops the ball short.

Keep in mind we were all bogey golfers (1 off 16, 3 off 17) and we don't do spin.

Don't need to do spin, just need to play smart...the surrounds were like velcro...i used everything from a gw to 6 iron on the surrounds when chipping depending on flag etc.  never had problems with down hills running out to far.  Putting on surrounds like that means you have to belt them to get through the velcro so it will always be a problem down hill.

 

I know bogey golfers with better short games then single figures guys so its nothing to do with handicaps....its all to do with whats between the ears!

Fast greens: the 8th (par 3 over dam). Player's ball was 2 feet above the hole. He gave it a very gentle tap toward the hole. Ball crept forward, diverted around the hole, then crawled another 3m down toward the front. All we could do was stand around and wait for it to stop. 9th & 18th were similar.

Yes, the fringe was very sticky, a stark contrast to the green speed.

Hi All,

 

Played Par on Saturday, finished +3 but because of all the +5s and +4s my handicap remained unchanged.
