Golf courses have greens. I doubt that that was the ref. in the test question. Possible, though.

I choose to interpret that as a portmanteau word rather than a spoonerism, and would endorse the sentiment entirely. wunch = wonderful + bunch

I've certainly heard and maybe even used 'gobsmacked' to mean flabbergasted, but I don't recall ever having heard 'gobsmacking' before.
