Yui Bietry won her second Sunday A Flight on the bounce, this one being even more commendable with a blistering 45 points that off her ten handicap relates to a gross 73.  Yui left the lower steps of the podium to be sorted out by a count back between nice guys Gary Blackburn and JP Maffray, which Gary won with 21 on his inner nine to JP’s 19.

2nd John Darby (15) 36pts

B Flight

1st Manos Volikakis (18) 34pts

2nd Aiden Murray (20) 33pts

It was a long drive that turned out worthwhile for those that made the effort as Greenwood was in excellent condition and the cost is one of the best in the area.

Alan White took the top spot in A Flight as he was the only player to better his handicap with a rock solid 38 points.  John Darby took charge of the second spot with a steady even par round.

B flight was headed by Manos Volikakis who bettered his Sunday third place finish with the top spot on 34 points.  Pay window regular Aiden Murray filled the flight podium a shot adrift.

Long term visitor Gordon Kerr was the sole heir to the 2’s pot

Ausie ace Geoff Bracegirdle was the star of the show and top man in A Flight on the day with an excellent 39 points.  Geoff was closely followed up the podium steps by Vic ‘the inflictor’ Hester a shot in arrears.  Adam Barton saw his 35 points hold on to the flight bronze in a three-way count back with Ireland’s Andrew Byrne and Bob Stokes.

Merle Humphreys punched his 38 points out to take the B Flight top spot by two points over Barry Elphick and Iain Jones.  Barry showed he knew how this game is played as he took the count back from Iain.

No ‘2’s were recorded so a rollover to Friday.

Friday, March 27, Crystal Bay C & A – Stableford

1st Lawrie McBride (13) 39pts

2nd Peter Henshaw (22) 35pts

Friday morning, and a small but dedicated group set out for Pattavia Century in eager anticipation of playing a good round of golf; well some did and some didn’t.  The course itself was in fine condition, although due to the recent heavy rain the fairways were a lot softer while the greens were running true.

The player who handled the conditions best was Scotland’s Lawrie McBride who, playing off 13, scored a very creditable 39 points.  He was followed up the podium steps by Irishman Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw who scored 35 points off his 22 handicap.

Once again no 2’s were recorded so a double rollover on Monday.
