Monday, Nov. 27, Phoenix Gold – Stableford

We were playing the Lakes and Ocean loops for a change and both were in magnificent condition with perfect greens to putt on.

The scoring was very good and coming in fourth place was Ivor Smith with 37 points.  Third spot went to Jean Pierre Gasson with 38 points and second to Miss Sasicha with 39, but it was Thiery Petrement’s day, shooting 74 off the stick for a terrific 45 points.

There was only one 2, coming from Francis Goyons.

Wednesday, Nov. 29, Green Valley – Monthly Medal

We had 18 ladies play in the comp today, with Miss Pin, recording 9 pars and 1 birdie to come in fourth with a net 70.  Miss Lynn benefitted from 2 birdies on the back nine to have a net 68 and third place while for the second week running Miss Nu had the lowest score with 39 on the back nine for a net 67.  This was the same score as Miss Som whose back 6 was 1 better than Miss Nu so was today’s winner.

In the men’s competition Bob Newell edged out Tony Oaks with a net 71 for fourth place.  Bob Scott came third with a net 69, one more than Nipper Truscott who couldn’t quite leave for Australia with a win and had to settle for second place.  Barry McIntosh came home with a net 66 despite 4 double bogies to take the day’s honours.

There were eleven ‘2’s, coming from John Player, Wayne Cotterell, Lynn, Ooh, Da, Sa (2), George Barrie, Jeff North, Barry McIntosh and Auke Engelkes.
