Monday, July 22, Pattavia – Stableford

1st Eric Black (15) 36pts

2nd Gordon Clegg (24) 31pts

3rd Mashi Kaneta (15) 31pts

Near Pins: Denis Steele, Eric Black, Martin Kempton.

Long Putts: Martin Kempton, Eric Black.

This course like many in the region is suffering from the lack of rain but other than that it was in good shape. We played just one flight and attacked the course from the white tees.

It was Eric Black’s day as he blew the cobwebs off and got straight in amongst it. His 36 points was enough to keep him ahead of the field while second and third went to the countback, with Gordon Clegg taking out second from his playing partner Mashi Kaneta.

Thursday, July 25, Pleasant Valley – Medal

1st Mashi Kaneta (24) 15 net 73

2nd Greg Jones (11) net 74

3rd Alex Field (17) net 75

Near Pins: Wan Mukmal, Greg Jones, Eric Black, Nat Rukkid.

Long Putts: Alex Field, Eric Black.

A field larger than usual turned out for the July monthly mug event. Pleasant Valley was the venue of choice and the course was in good condition as the greens ran true and the bunkers were clean and raked. We played the one flight from the blue/white tees.

Mashi Kaneta was good enough to win this month’s mug as he saw off all challengers with his return of net 73. In a tight contest it was newcomer Greg Jones that played himself into second spot only one shot behind the winner. Alex Field filled the last position on the podium, again a solitary shot behind second place.
