A small but optimistic group took on the challenge of the Pattavia greens on Monday. The course was in pretty good condition and the greens were a reasonable pace.

Back in the clubhouse the cards showed that the A flight struggled somewhat, although playing the white tee boxes the difference in yardage shouldn’t have been significant. The B flight faired better with all the top 3 players beating their handicap.

The A Flight winner was Peter Bygballe, with a solid 34 points, repeating his victory of our last visit here. The ever-improving Ronnie Ratte came in second with a respectable 33 points and an ecstatic Mashi Kaneta claimed third place with 31.

In B Flight there was a three-way countback with 3 players having 37 points. The countback was straightforward as the 3 back-nine scores were all different. Victorious in the tussle was Patrick Poussier with a superb 23 points on the back, which included an excellent one putt on the last hole for a valuable 4-pointer. The ever-present Jan Lovgreen came second with 20 points on the back, a costly 1 point on the last hole preventing Jan from securing another victory. In third place was Peter Hammond with 17 points, continuing a superb season with yet another podium finish.

Thursday, March 14, Treasure Hill – Stableford

A Flight (0-23)
1st Henning Olsen (22) 39pts
2nd Arne Max Pedersen (23) 36pts
3rd Ronnie Ratte (21) 35pts

B Flight (24+)
1st Karen Brown (31) 35pts
2nd Kurt Sandgaard (33) 34pts
3rd Carole Kubicki (24) 34pts

Near Pins: Arne Max Pedersen, Kjeld Jorgensen, Steen Habersaat, Rob Brown.
Long Putts: Jan Lovgreen, Steen Habersaat.

Treasure Hill was not at its very best on this Thursday, the greens having been aerated so the occasional putt wandered off line. The yellow tees were chosen for all and this time they were in their forward positions, giving opportunities for the bigger hitters to take advantage.

Back in the clubhouse the scores were slightly better than normal, the A flight fairing better while in B flight no one beat their handicap, although several were close.

The A Flight winner was Henning Olsen with the score of the day, a superb 39 points, including an outstanding 22 points on the back 9, or should I say the back 8 as unfortunately the last hole bore no points. Arne Max Pedersen was second with a rock solid 36 points and Ronnie Ratte took third place with 35, Ronnie not managing to progress his 19 point front-nine.

In B Flight the winner was Karen Brown with another good performance and 35 points, the score being particularly impressive as the ladies tees were not that far away from the yellow tees. There was a countback for second and third places with two players having 34 points. Kurt Sandgaard claimed second place with 18 points on the back, a good score and a good day for Kurt. Third place was taken by another of our ladies, Carole Kubicki with 17 points on the back.
