Monday, April 30, Pattavia – Stableford

1st Martin Kempton (13) 37pts

2nd Gary Williams (28) 37pts

Near Pins: 4th Tony Cook, 7th Alex Field, 13th Alex Field, 17th Gary Williams.

The rain hit Pattaya early in the morning and unfortunately it caused some panic, the result being that we had 4 pullouts.  Anyway, we still had a field of 12 set out to Pattavia and it was great to see that there was no rain about and if they had had any it did not affect the course as such. Carts were allowed on course which excited our group.

Martin Kempton took the chocolates today, beating an improved Gary Williams via the count back system.  Both golfers returned 37 points with Martin having the better back 9.

Thursday, May 3, Greenwood – Stableford

1st Colin Stielow (26) 35pts

2nd Keith Buchanan (15) 34pts

3rd Peter Bricknell (13) 33pts

Near Pins: C6 Gary Williams, A2 Andre Van Dyke, A6 John Mugavin.

Long Putt: C9 Colin Stielow, A9 Colin Stielow.

Fourteen enthusiastic golfers departed The Swan for the trip up to Greenwood.  The course was in great nick with little or no sign that they had any rain.  We played courses C & A and with enough run on the fairways we played from the white tees.  The greens also played true as the weather stayed on our side.

Colin Stielow showed the way, taking out today’s event with a very tidy 35 points.  Second past the post was his mate and playing partner “Kissy” Keith Buchanan, with Peter Bricknell notching up a placing prior to departure.

An honorable mention goes out to John Mugavin who unfortunately missed out on a podium place by 2 unlucky points, accusing Steve Younger of talking whilst he was putting and that it cost him at the very least 4 points on the greens.  The complaint form is in the post John.
