Gabe & Sancillo star at Bangpakong


PSC golf from Café Kronborg

Monday, Jan. 14, Bangpakong – Stableford

We were off to our favorite venue, the pristine Bangpakong Riverside course, just up route 7 for 1 hour and 10 minutes.

After another swift check-in we were off the first tee 5 minutes later the schedule under sunny skies and in hot conditions.  The course was its usual pristine self with very good greens.

Two flight today with the cut at handicap 20 and Michelle Sancillo won the A Flight with a fine 42 points ahead of Stephen Cooper-Reade in second on 39 points, Doug Maiko third with 37 and Kjeld Ravn completing the podium with 35 points.

Last month’s hole in one boy, Brian Gabe, won the B Flight with a fine 42 points to finish five clear of Elias Magnusson in second, while Carole Kubicki placed third on count back over Dave Richardson, both on 36 points

Thursday, Jan. 17, Pleasant Valley – Stableford

It was off to Pleasant Valley today and we were off the first tee on time under sunny skies with a brisk wind.  The course was in very good condition but a good majority of the tee markers were on the blue tees.  That, combined with the wind, made scoring difficult as you will note.

Two flights today with the cut at handicap 20 and Kjeld Ravn topped the A Flight with 35 points ahead of Jesper Rasmussen in second on 34, while Stephen Cooper-Reade took third on a count back over Jan Lovegreen, both on 33 points.  Richard Kubicki placed fifth on a count back from Bob Taylor both with 29.

Svende Gaarde took the B Flight honours with the best score of the day, 36 points.  Susanne Gaarde was second on 33 points, Ulla Ravn third with 31, and Eddie Glinsek claimed fourth on a count back from Graham Buckingham, on 30 points.

Back in the clubhouse after a slow round of 5 hours, welcomes went out to Girli and Bente from Denmark, Rodney Beckett, Bob Taylor, Peter Bygbelle and Rune Aasheim.
