Cafe Kronborg played at Crystal Bay on Monday, where the course was busy and another dreaded 5-ball made things slow on the front nine.  The greens mirrored the pace of play, slow on the front and the more usual quicker pace on the back.

The vastly differing greens and the heat of the day took its toll and scores were surprisingly poor for Crystal Bay and only the flight winners managed to play to their handicaps.

The A Flight winner with a robust 36 points was John Ostrom, returning to the Kronborg for the first time in a couple of years.  Second was Ronnie Ratte with a hard earned 34 points and third was the ever-consistent Rob Brown with a respectable 33.

In the B Flight the omni-present Jan Lovgreen took pole position with the only other 36 points of the day.  Carole Kubicki continued her improving form, taking second place with 33 points and Peter Hammond was a little bemused to take third place with 30 and no count-back.
