Yesterday the North Adelaide ladies played Flagstaff Hill at Grange
as part of the ongoing Hickory competition.
We won 4 to 1... guess who was the 1?
It was the first match in the competition we played in the rain.
While it wasn't heavy rain, the light rain persisted for at least
two of the nearly five hours of play. It was a slow day!
Still, it wasn't windy or cold and with the right wet weather gear
it was manageable. Indeed, it is always lovely to be on a golf
course, surrounded by trees and birds.
The first 13 holes of the west course were ready for play by 1927.
The land was originally swamp, so there's a lot of sand!
Grange is lucky enough to have two courses. We played on the
West Course leaving the Greg Norman designed East Course
to the other club members wanting a game.
Greg Norman won his first professional victory on the East Course,
with a course record round of 64, ten under the course par.
Wayne Grady and Stuart Appleby also won their first
championship victories at Grange.
