Gentry’s genius


Phoenix Members Golf Society

I overheard someone saying, “Christmas is a coming, be nice to be back home for the snow, the chilly north easterly winds and the cost of everything.”  I thought you must be having a laugh.  It’s 33 degrees and certainly no sign of snow this week.  Plus, who likes turkey anyway?  No folks, I think anyone in their right mind is more than happy with what we have to suffer here.

Indeed no one more than Gentry Harrington, who we had not seen for quite a while.  Being the good golfer he is, he showed the rest of the group how the game should be played with a superb 75 gross and 40 points to win easily at Phoenix on Tuesday, Dec 11.  In a not so close second place was Mukesh Thakker with a mere 37 points, third place with 35 points went to Stuart Gordon who just edged Patrick Browne into fourth place by way of a better back nine.

Tuesday’s winners at The Relax Bar. Tuesday’s winners at The Relax Bar.

As you can guess with such a good round of golf it was no surprise to see Gentry win two of the near pins, with John Kelly and Bob Neylon claiming the other two between them.

The lucky draw (as always donated by our hosts The Relax Bar) went to Joris Goetschalkx, Bill Hewitt, Goort Gelten & Sergio Volpi.

On Tuesday January 8 we are holding our annual New Year Drive In and we would like anyone who wants to join us to call me (Mike) on 087 091 7565.  We have a limited number of tee times so get in quick.  It goes without saying that anyone who would like to sponsor anything on the day will be welcomed with open arms.  More on this in a future editorial.

Sea fishing is getting very busy at present so if anyone is interested, again give me a call.  It’s a great day out on the ocean.
