With the numbers creeping up slowly there were sufficient players on Sunday to warrant three flights at the always popular Green Valley.  The course was in fine condition but slightly wet in places due to the very heavy rains of late; surprisingly though the scores were excellent with only one player unable to turn in a card.

The day’s winner was B Flight’s Jimmy ‘AK-47 Bell’ with a excellent man of the match 40 points.  Jim was one stroke clear of Gerry ‘the Irish rover’ Roche, leaving Dave Charlton to close the flight a further stroke back

Peter LeNoury was the story in the premier flight as he took the gold with a fine 39 points.  Peter was followed closely up the podium steps by Phil ‘the Welsh wonder’ Davies while Mike Holmes rounded out the flight a further stroke back

Dropping down to the C Flight we found that there was nothing new to report as Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw recorded another win with a fine 39 points.  The minor places were decided on count back as both Don ‘the ladies’ man’ Lehmer and the lady riding a purple cloud, Satita Cheoychao, were tied on 38 points.  Ladies before gents? – not when Don is in the count back as he lifted the silver and Satita was left with the bronze.

Monday, Nov. 7, Pleasant Valley – Stableford

1st Sean Soden (24) 41pts

2nd Pat Feeney (24) 38pts

3rd Tom Gorey (17) 38pts

4th Dominic Downey (13) 36pts

A fair sized group of players departed from Lewiinski’s at 9 a.m. and headed for Pleasant Valley.  The course was in fine condition but with little run on the fairways the scores were still excellent, especially from the Irish contingent.

Leading the boys into the barn was Sean Soden with a best on the day 41 points.  Sean was three strokes clear of his good mates Pat Feeney and Tom ‘the Irish rover’ Gorey, Pat got the better of Tom over the last six holes to receive the second podium spot.  Dominic Downey with a steady even par round closed the flight.

Friday, Nov. 11,

17 players left Lewiinski’s and Colin’s Golf Bar to take on the tough Mountain Shadow.  Yes that’s right, Lewiinski’s and Colin’s Bar have joined up to play their golf together.  So if you wish to play you can ring either venue to sign up.

The course was in good condition and the greens played true.  The lads decided to play of the blue tees and one was amazed how the junior flight handled it.  B Flight’s Gerry Coney took the day’s honours with a blistering 41 points.  Gerry was followed closely up the podium steps by Bob Fagan a stroke adrift and closing the flight was Barry Oakes with a steady even par round.

The premier flight was led in by Barry Oakes with a solid 37 points while the minor places needed the aid of a count back to separate Martin Solberg and Steve Mahan, and when the divots had settled it was Martin who took the silver step on the podium.
