4th Maurice Goyons 9170 32pts

A large group left Lewiinski’s for our regular Sunday bash and found the course in its usual excellent condition.  The weather was blowing a very cold gale at times leaving the lads with very difficult club selection as the scores would indicate.

One man stood head and shoulders above the rest and that man was Irishman Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw who took the day and B Flight with an incredible 43 points.  The nearest anyone got to Peter was A Flight winner Michel Deletraz with a sold even par round.

Big Adam Barton followed Michel up the podium steps a stroke adrift while the bronze went to Jeffrey Acheson on 32 points.  Ajit Amin was left speechless to find his 30 points was only good for the flight fourth spot.

B Flight’s Fred Birch picked up the silver with 35 points but he did need the aid of a count back over the unlucky Gerry Hughes.  Murices Goyons closed the flight with 32 points.

Monday, Feb. 8, Greenwood B & C – Stableford

1st Dominic Downey (12) 35pts

2nd Sean Soden (23) 33pts

3rd Jean Goergen (11) 33pts

4th Roy Crosthwaite (14) 33pts

The always difficult Wolveridge and Thomson designed Greenwood course again proved to be hard to score on in our stableford competition, with no player managing to better his handicap.

Gerry Hughes and Gerry Roche.

The top score of the day that took the man of the match honours was posted by Dominic Downey as he bettered his third place finish on Sunday with a sound 35 points.  A quartet of players, Sean Soden, Jean Goergen, Roy Crosthwaite and David Dune, were knotted on 33 points and Sean emerged from the pile-up with the silver as Jean took bronze and fourth place was filled by Ray Crosthwaite.

Wednesday, Feb. 10, Pattana B & C – Stableford

A Flight

1st Pen Caruthers (14) 36pts

2nd Peter Ennis (15) 35pts

3rd Peter Hynard (14) 33pts

B Flight

1st Tony Dolphin (18) 34pts

2nd Robert Baird (24) 34pts

3rd John O’Neill (21) 33pts

An excellent turn outset off up the 331 to Pattana, which is well within a forty five minute drive, and on arrival we were happy to find that the course was in excellent condition with the greens beginning to return to their old speed and flatness.  With sufficient numbers to form two divisions and the cut coming at 16 and under, the field set off from the yellow tees.

In the first division Pen Caruthers came right back into form to post a man of the match even par round, and even though Peter Ennvis got within one stroke of Pen he had to settle for the flight silver.  Peter ‘the right honourable’ Hynard played fairly well but did need the aid of a count back decision over the unlucky Leo Mulvaney, both on 33 points.

In the second division Tony Dolphin stood atop of the podium with34 points but he also had to first win a count back over Robert Baird who took the silver and made it his second pay window visit this week.  John O’Neill rounded out the podium placers with a steady 33 points.

Friday, Feb. 12, Silky Oak – 2M better-ball

The society tried to whisper that the day’s fixture was a two-man better-ball, but someone let the secret slip.  That awoke Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid of the famed Irish golfers, none other than Gerry Hughes and Gerry Ruche to the fact that there were a couple of trophies to be had.  Their 45 points was two clear of three pairs of golfers, Caruthers and Barrett, Goergen and Emery and Henshaw and Bray, with the scales of justice tipping in the favour of Caruthers and Barrett.
