A good sized crowd turned out to play the monthly medal for March.  The weather was hot and humid and the course, as always, was well presented.

And it was the Irish who took the top spots in A Flight – Co. Offaly gang leader Kevin McEntee made off with the medal with a best of the day net 67.  He also wins a non-transferable invite to the yearend Gold medal to be held after the December medal has been determined.  He will also have his name etched on the Lewiinskis’ hall of shame.

Kevin was followed up the podium steps by fellow Irishman Connie Walsh on a net 71, as Robin Peach closed the flight with a net76.

Pay window specialist Henk ter Braak stood on top of the B Flight podium with a net 72 and was one clear of golf manager Marcus Earp, and yet one more clear of Michael Beilby.


Monday, March 13, Phoenix – Stableford


1st Henk ter Braak (32) 39pts

2nd Wayne Bridgman (5) 36pts

3rd Derek Phillips (32) 36pts

4th Mick Coglan (21) 33pts


The Lewiinskis golf society visited the Phoenix Golf club today to play a stableford comp.  The course was in fine condition and the greens were consistent and running at a moderate pace.  Again the weather was mad hot and we were allotted the Ocean and Mountain layouts.  There was just one flight but with four podium places.

The man riding a purple patch, Henk ter Braak, took the man of the match honours with a rock solid 39 points.  Wayne Bridgman took the silver with a steady 36 points but only after he won a count back victory over the unlucky Derek Phillips.  A count was called for again to sort the minor flight spot between Mick Coglan and Ireland’s Connie Walsh; there was no luck of the Irish as Mick took the decision to leave Connie at sea level and potless.


Wednesday, March 15, Khao Kheow A & C – Stableford


1st Henk ter Braak (21) 34pts

2nd Mick Pikos (18) 34pts

3rd Wayne Bridgman (5) 32pts

A small but talented group traveled to play Khao Kheow on a day when there was not a cloud in the sky and again very hot.  The course was very well presented with fine fairways and slick greens.  We had just the one flight for the day and the course was the winner as no player managed to play to par or better.

The man on fire, Henk ter Braak, made it three wins on the trot with his 34 points – mind you, he first had to win a count back against the unlucky Mick Pikos 17-16.  The minor flight place was filled by Wayne Bridgman whose 32 points made him a two-time pay window visitor this week.
