Mountain Shadow was the choice for the 148th PSC Monthly Golf Tournament on Tuesday, December 8, with the PSC Xmas Party being held on the following evening.
There were several cancellations for various reasons plus one actual “no-show” but there was still a healthy field of 92 golfers. Registration went very smoothly and there were no latecomers to slow things down and with perfect weather and the golf course in excellent condition some good scores were anticipated.
PSC Golf Chairman/President Maurice Roberts, together with Peter Blackburn, Marcus Earp and Mark West arrived at the course early to await the players.
On this occasion the A Flight played medal off the blue tees, B & C Flights played stableford off the white tees and D Flight played stableford off the yellow tees, with Ladies/Seniors playing stableford off the red & silver tees.

Peter Gangur (22) recorded 38 points to top the C Flight while the D Flight winner was Torben Lindgaard (28) with 42 points.

The presentation and prize giving was this time held at Dicey Reillys and the food was superb and plenty of it. Many thanks go to Santi and staff for an excellent buffet.
