Great weather for golf

One thing for certain, the extended stretch of autumn sun is being well received on area golf courses, as evident on the fairways of Eaglecrest on Tuesday when four old friends, each of them charting their course carefully in the face of gusting winds, were clearly enjoying themselves.

The four amigos — Bob Bagnall, Dennis Giesbrecht, Bill Watson and Neville Taylor — were part of the Eaglecrest Men’s Club Tuesday match play.

“Another beautiful day, fantastic!” one of them piped up from the edge of the green on number nine, and then Dennis drained a nice 13-footer which earned some props from his playing partners.

“That was probably my best putt of the day,” he panned.

Between the four of them we determined, they bring 189 years of golfing experience to the greens. Bagnall, 85 with a 25 handicap, leads the way with 75 years under his belt, Neville next at 64, Watson’s in at 30 and Dennis has 20.

“Wow, that’s a lot of experience,” Bill laughed, and off they went.
