Cafe Kronborg golfers visited this classy course today and were not disappointed with the condition thereof. What the golfers in the B Flight did not bargain for was the Italian connection, in the form of Dal Pastro, muscling in with his 37 points and 21on the back nine, pushing Peter Hammond and Jan Lovegreen into second and third respectively.
Our top flight did not have an Italian connection, just a Viking in the form of Peter Bygballe who regularly plunders and he did so again today with his 42 points, winning by six shots.

Cafe Kronborg golfers went to Crystal Bay on Thursday where they played the B and C nines. Unfortunately the condition of this course is rapidly declining. It seems somebody has forgotten that this is the golf course that needs constant labour and attention and somebody who can operate a greens cutting machine. The grass on the greens on the back nine looked and played as if they had not been cut and believe it or not, downhill putts were slow!
Apart from our moans and groans one of our players, Rob Brown, was able to play to his handicap and won the A Flight in spite of blobbing the last hole after a bee stung his ear when he was walking to the 18th tee. Not too much sympathy was expressed as he has been stinging us all winter – maybe there is poetic justice! Ronnie Rattle was second behind Rob, just one point behind, and Phil Scotton took third with 34.
Peter Hammond topped the B Flight with a one over handicap 35 points while Ulla Ravn and Jan Lovegreen were surprised to get spots on the podium with their relatively modest scores.
