It’s Ashton’s week


Lewinnski’s Golf Society

Sunday, April 23, Silky Oak – Stableford

1st Steve Zeigler (14) 36pts

2nd John Emerson (14) 35pts

3rd Phil Ashton (14) 33pts


This Sunday we had a smallish field so it was just one flight to test their mettle against the always ‘cruel but fair’ Silky Oak layout at Green Valley.  The course was found to be in great condition and the greens were fats and true.

Steve Zeigler took the top spot with a man of the match 36 points but was pushed all the way by the man on form, John Emerson, who came up a shot shy.  This left Phil Ashton to tidy up the podium positions on 33 points.

Monday, April 24, Phoenix Gold – Stableford

1st Phil Ashton (14) 35pts

2nd Bryan Byrne (20) 34pts

3rd Marcus Earp (24) 32pts


One flight again as the lads traveled to play Phoenix Gold.  Once again the course was in splendid condition and a pleasure to play, mind you, it was a very hot day at around 36C.

Phil Ashton made up for his third place finish on Sunday as he took the man of the match honours with a fine 35 points.  Phil was one stroke clear of Bryan Byrne while golf manager Marcus Earp completed the pay-window places on 32 points.

Wednesday, April 26, Khao Kheow – Stableford

1st Phil Ashton (14) 38pts

2nd Wank Harman (15) 35pts

3rd JJ Harney (12) 31pts


The Lewiinski’s Golf Society visited Khao Kheow Country Club to play a stableford competition.  The course was found to be in fine condition and the greens a delight to play, and although rain threatened all-day it managed to hold off.

Taking the third podium spot was our good friend from Ireland JJ Harney with 31 points John trailed Wank Harman by four shots as Wank filled the second podium spot.  The winner and the man of the match was the man on form, Phil Ashton, who made it three pay widow visits this week.


Thursday, April 27, Greenwood A & B – Stableford

1st Marcus Earp (24) 38pts

2nd Robert Barnes (17) 34pts


By the society’s standards the low turnout may have been because we played our final game of the week on a Thursday and not the usual Friday.  The choice of course was the Green Valley and we were given the A & B layouts to play.  The course was in fine condition and again the rain held off until we had finished our game and were headed back to Lewiinski’s.

The golf manager Marcus Earp took the man of the match honours with a fine 38 points and was four strokes clear of Robert Barnes.
