Wednesday, Nov. 11, The Emerald – Stableford

The course here is still improving slightly every time we visit and it was another thumbs-up consensus today.

Thirty-five points was the best score of the day, coming in division 1 to give Paul Butler first place ahead of Chris Voller in second on 32.  There were three 30-pointers fighting for third place and Ian Plummer edged Dennis Scougall and Dave Horne on a 17/16/14 back nine count back to take the last spot on the podium.

Curtis Hessler’s 33 points won division 2, with Tom Novak taking second one point behind and Gerry Cooke in third with 30.

Near pins were claimed by (Div 1) Paul Butler, Dave Horne and Chris Voller, and (Div 2) Curtis Hessler, Tom Novak, Ian Plummer and Jeff Van de Uffelen.

Jeff Van Uffelen recorded the only ‘2’ of the day with a birdie on the 7th to scoop the division 2 pot.

Friday, Nov. 13, Eastern Star – Stableford

There was heavy rain at the course early morning but as we arrived the clouds dispersed and it became a very hot day.  Pick, clean and place was implemented from the first tee onwards and this was a wise decision as some of the fairways were very soggy.  We had a few cancellations and with 31 out we were one short for three divisions.

Frank Kelly topped the division 2 standings with an even par 36 points.  Bill Kana came in second on 34 and in his first game with us since his return, Max Wilson placed third with 33.

Mark Potton beat Pete Sumner 16/15 on count back for first place in division 1 after both retuned 34 points each and Ian Speirs edged Mikael Andersson on another count back for third place as they were locked on 33 points apiece.

Near pins went to (Div 1) Mikael Andersson (2), Ian Speirs and Pete Sumner, and (Div 2) Bill Kana, Tom Novak and Max Wilson (2).

No ‘2’s in either division so double rollovers to here next Friday.
