Pleasant Valley was in good condition today but the course had recently been over-watered making it damp in places.  It was busy here but we still made it around in 4 hours and 10 minutes.

We had 2 flights again today, with the cut at handicap 21, and a full lineup of pins.

Tate Akifumi took the A Flight honours on a count back from Elias Magnusson, both with fine scores of 43 points.  Brian Gabe came third with 40, one ahead of Andre Vandyk, and Peter Bygeballe completed the podium in fifth with 38.

In the B Flight we had a three-way count back for the top three places, with Jan Lovgreen taking first, Jack Robertson second and Kurt Sandgaard third, all with 40 points each.  Mike Winfield meanwhile took fourth on a count back over Dave Richardson, both on 39 points.
