Maiko on the march at Treasure Hill


PSC golf from Café Kronborg

Monday, Jan. 28, Treasure Hill – Stableford

Treasure Hill was the game today but it sure looked like back in October in the rainy season.  1 hour up the 331 with rain sometimes heavy and when we got to the course it was still coming down at a good clip.  Finally it eased up and we teed-off 40 minutes late under misty conditions.  The course was in fine condition though wet but draining so no plugged balls anywhere.

Back in the clubhouse after a round of 4 hours and 30 minutes welcomes went out to Monte Sykes and Ty Anderson from Cheasapeake Virginia, USA.

Two flights today with the cut at handicap 18 and the full lineup of pins.  Doug Maiko won the A Flight with a fine 39 points ahead of Monte Sykes in second on 34 points, with Tore Eliassen and Leif Kirkgaard finishing third and fourth respectively.

Thursday, Jan. 31, Mountain Shadow – Stableford

We were off to Mountain Shadow with some spots of heavy rain en-route.  A quick check-in and we were off the first tee 15 minutes early under surprisingly partly sunny and dry conditions.  The course showed no signs of any rain this week and was in a fine condition, but as we went down the 14th the heavens opened up.

It must be noted that a lot of white tees were back on the blues, making for not so good scores when combined with the rain that started halfway around.  The first group finished in just 4 hours but were looking like drowned rats at the end.

A goodbye went out to Michelle Sancillo, back to his restaurant in Spain.

Two flights today with the cut at handicap 19, plus a full bevy of pins.

Don Richardson won the A Flight with the best score of the day 37 points.  Monte Sykes was second again with 34 while Koji Yamada and Daryl Evans struggled through to pick up the minor places.

Graham Buckingham topped B Flight standings with 33 points while Susanne Gaarde came second on a count back from Jesper Rasmussen, both with 28 points.  Elias Magnusson finished fourth with 27.

A Flight (0-19)

1st Don Richardson (11) 37pts

2nd Monte Sykes (8) 34pts

3rd Koji Yamada (12) 26pts

4th Daryl Evans (18) 20pts
