We had nineteen golfers turning out to take on a tough but good course in Mountain Shadow. This is a favourite amongst our golfers and with reasonable pricing it is no wonder. The course, as per usual, was in real good nick; fairways had been mowed and cleaned, bunkers were raked and generally speaking we were in for a good game of golf!

The weather was on the good side of golfers, not too hot and a gentle breeze made things a bit better than normal.

We played one division with four places all novelties would be in play. We played from the white markers which suited most of the players on the day.

Patrick Poussier and Alex Field set the scene alight, both returning 37 points apiece. It was down to the count back to separate the two of them and Patrick just got the nod ahead of Alex. Third place went to Craig Duncan and Keith Buchanan completed the podium in fourth.

Two buses and a couple of cars were to take us out to Greenwood GC, and as per usual we were not disappointed in what we got on the day. Weather conditions were ideal; overcast for most of the day, we had a little bit of sun but most importantly there was no rain. We played A & C Courses in that order and attacked the course from the yellow tees.

As usual the course was in great nick and there were no complaints about the price either. We played 2 flights today with all novelties in play.

A-Flight saw Alex Field get on top of things, returning a very tidy score of 38 points to take first place. Second and third went to the count back and it was an easy to decide as Sal Brizzi had the better back nine to Paul Hack’s inward half.

B-Flight had Rocky Lawson take first place by the slightest of margins with 34 points. Second home was Jerry Dobbs only the solitary shot back and third onto the podium was Smithers Kevin Smith also a solitary shot behind Jerry.
