Edgar & Macey tear it up at Green Valley


PSC golf from The Bunker

Monday, Nov. 1,  Bangpra – Stableford

Overcast weather conditions had some of the long term residents commenting that it was a bit too chilly for golf, but most others found the temperature ideal.  The course was surprisingly quiet and in good condition, so everything was set for a great day’s golf.

It was something of a surprise at the end of the day, to find that only Dave Ashman and Peter Habgood had taken advantage of the conditions to better their handicap and take first place in the A and B flights respectively.

Back at the Bunker Bar, Geoff Cox was announced as the Golfer of the Month for October, and copious amounts of the amber nectar were consumed as the events of the day were digested.

A Flight

1st Dave Ashman (14) 38pts

2nd Geoff Parker (15) 35pts

3rd Tony Scambler (10) 34pts

B Flight

1st Peter Habgood (17) 37pts

2nd Paul Edgar (16) 34pts

3rd PJ Redmond (20) 31pts

Near Pins: Roger Privett, William Macey, PJ Redmond and Tony Scambler.

Wednesday, Nov. 3, Green Valley – Stableford

Playing Green Valley for the second time in a week turned out to be a disappointment since the greens had been sanded over the intervening weekend.  Putting was a lottery but as always some were able to cope better than others.  Best of all on the day was Paul Edgar who carded an impressive 43 points, closely followed by William Macey, and Tony Robbins who both also produced handicap cutting rounds.

It’s worth mentioning that for the first time ever, the reception requested a copy of the start sheet to prove that we had more than the required 20 players to qualify for the high season discount.

A Flight

1st Paul Edgar (16) 43pts

2nd Tony Robbins (14) 40pts

3rd Phil M (13) 34pts

B Flight

1st William Macey (16) 41pts

2nd Peter Habgood (17) 38pts

3rd PJ Redmond (20) 35pts

Near Pins: Joe Vanderwegen, Peter Habgood and Mashi Kaneta.

Friday, Nov. 5,Treasure Hill – Stableford

We had taken a 2 month break from playing Treasure Hill because there was so much work being done on the course, and we returned today to find that the work is still very much in progress.  Surely the course will be superb when the work is eventually completed, but there seems little prospect of that happening before the New Year.

With several temporary tees and one temporary green the course presented an even tougher test than usual, and only Gerry Cooney was able to rise to the challenge and score better than his handicap.

A Flight

1st Gerry Cooney (12) 37pts

2nd Neil Jones (10) 35pts

3rd Roger Tuohy (8) 34pts

B Flight

1st Nile Sheehan (25) 33pts

2nd Peter Habgood (17) 31pts

3rd Geoff Hart (19) 30pts

Near Pins: PJ Redmond, Geoff Parker, Roger Tuohy and Chris Cox.
