Monday, Nov. 18, The Emerald – Stableford
1st Fergus Brennan (12) 39pts
2nd Tristan Gilbert (9) 36pts
Ben Durham (10) 35pts
1st Jack Macnamara (19) 39pts
David Booth (14) 38pts
Dorsey Richardson (17) 34pts
Loi Krathong, the Thai light festival when the night sky is full of burning lanterns, passed off on Sunday 17th November and on Monday 18th November a couple of TRGG golfers were obviously enthused by what they had seen and set about lighting up the Emerald Golf Course, setting it ablaze with some spectacular scoring.
Or maybe as they are both of Irish extraction, playing at the Emerald was all the inspiration they needed? Anyway for Fergus Brennan (Div 1 winner) and Jack Macnamara (Div 2 winner) it turned out to be a very good day as they both rattled up 39 pts each and left the opposition trailing in their wake.
Tuesday, Nov. 19, Green Valley – Stableford
1st David Booth (14) 37pts
2nd Ted Senior (15) 37pts
3rd Tom Byrne (14) 36pts
1st Ken Brehm (19) 40pts
2nd Tim Dalton (19) 37pts
3rd Rungratree Chotkasems (18) 36pts
On Tuesday it was off to our now regular Tuesday venue at Green Valley and more good scoring was needed to come out on top of each division.
David Booth maintained his fine play of the previous day and not only went one better in his finishing position but also found he had been promoted to the first division as the split was at 15/16 handicap. He beat new father Ted Senior on count back. Well done David – not bad for an old fella.
My old sparring partner Ken Brehm returned the best score of the day to win Division 2 with 40 pts and at this rate he will be getting promoted soon as well.
Thursday, Nov. 21, Treasure Hill – Stableford
1st Brian Beaupreh (5) 35pts
2nd Ian Bell (6) 33pts
3rd Ed Brubaker (14) 32pts
Div 2 (16+)
1st Paul McKay (24) 31pts
2nd Jack Macnamara (18) 28pts
3rd Dorsey Richardson (17) 26pts
Thursday and it was off to Treasure Hill, probably the most difficult course of the week and the final scoring showed it has not lost any of its bite.
In Division 1 Brian Beaupreh shot the best round of the day with 35 pts and the rest of the scores were nothing to write home about.
Saturday, Nov. 23, Crystal Bay – Stableford
1st Paul Stanton (13) 37pts
2nd Neil Bramley (10) 36pts
3rd Paul Mckay (24) 35pts
The golfing week was rounded off on Saturday with a visit to Crystal Bay (C and B courses) and we were back down to one division.
Paul Stanton showed he is completely recovered from his back problems with yet another win and Neil Bramley ran him close but had to settle for second place. Paul Mckay, who always has a smile on his face, took third spot.
Good luck to all you golfers for the coming week!
