Wednesday, August 14, Green Valley – Stableford

The ladies, once again – no surprise there, had some amazing rounds of golf on this day. Thirty-nine points, although a good round in itself, only gave 3rd place to Miss Sasicha (H/cap 20), with three 1-pointers on the back-nine putting an end to her challenge. Two points better off was Miss Lynn (9) who must have been pleased with the final count of 41 points, a 76 gross with 11 pars and 2 birdies. But Miss May (12) won the day with 42 points, a round which included 11 pars and 1 birdie showing how difficult she is to beat at the moment.

Jeff North (10) edged a countback over Arch Armstrong (10) for 3rd place in the men’s flight, both on 34 points. Peter Terry (20) fell away after the turn with 3 double bogies showing a return of 15 points but William Peach (20) was well out in front with 38 points.

Three 2s today went to Miss Lynn, Miss Nu and Miss Sasicha.

Friday, August 30, Phoenix Gold – Scramble

Phoenix on Friday for the monthly scramble and a great day out it was for all seven groups who played. We played Mountain and Ocean loops in conditions that were good – not hot just the right temperature and a nice breeze to keep it there.

The Captain’s team just couldn’t get the putts to fall in and in this format you must have a red hot putter if you want to get anywhere. In second place was the team of Miss May, Bob StAubin, Rick Culley and George Way with a score of 59.7, The team of Lloyd Shuttleworth, Bill Marsden, Bob Newell and Simon Philbrook, playing off a 4-handicap, came home the winners with a net 57. Seven birdies on the back nine surely helped out. In September we will go to Parachat for a change of venue.
