Cafe Kronborg played Pattavia on Monday where the course was in good condition with receptive greens and fringes that were not watered to within an inch of their life, making it a pleasant change to be able to bump and run onto the greens. The pace of the greens was not too fast, about right for Pattavia, although they are always tricky and attention to grain and slope is necessary.

Back in the clubhouse the scores were pretty good with more than half the field managing 30 points or better. With reduced numbers of players there were only 3 places on the podium for each flight. Two people managed to beat their handicap to win their respective flights and B flight had a real tussle with 3 players on 35 points fighting for second and third places.

The A Flight winner was Ty Anderson with a sterling 37 points, Ty being a very steady player and no stranger to the top spot. Ty once again pipped Richard Kubicki who came second with 36 points. Third place was decided on a close countback with 2 players having 31 points. Peter Bygballe took it with 15 points on the back and 10 points on the last 6 holes and Rob Brown narrowly lost out.

In B Flight the winner was the in-form Jan Lovgreen with the score of the day 38 points, Jan’s third victory in a row. Second and third place were hotly contested with 3 players on 35 points vying for the 2 spots. The countbacks were straightforward though, coming in a strong second was Birgit Jorgensen with an impressive 20 points on the back. Third was Peter Hammond with a solid countback of 18 points while Gordon Clegg, who had a magnificent 22 points on the front, lost out with a disappointing 13 coming home.

Plutaluang Navy course was the venue on Thursday 21st February, where we were allocated North and West nines, arguably the better 18. The course was in good shape and the greens ran more or less as expected. Yellow tees for all and the big hitters amongst the A flight had a chance to capitalise, but few did.

The A Flight winner was Rob Brown, with a superb 39 points, off his 5 handicap, the score of the day and one of only two players to beat their handicap. Rob’s recent consistency being rewarded not only with first place, but also with a cut to 4 next week the lowest he’s ever been. Second was Ronnie Ratte with an excellent 37 points, which could have been even better had lady luck gone his way, and in third was Peter Bygballe with a solid 36.

In B Flight the winner was Gordon Clegg with a respectable 34 points ahead of 2 players having 32 points and fighting it out for second. Jan Lovgreen took the silver with a countback of 16 points, beating Tiziano Dal Pastro’s 11 points on the back nine.
