O’Sullivan takes the medal


IPGC Golf from The Tara Court

Sunday, June 11, Green Valley – Medal

We had what was our smallest group ever out here for our monthly medal at Green Valley, due in no small part to the condition of the course where now even people who are members do not think it is worth playing, and now that they have cored and sanded the greens it is even less attractive to play.

Not great scoring, probably as putting was a lottery, and Kevin O’Sullivan came out the winner with a net seventy five.  Joe Peters was playing his last game before going over to Ireland for a few months and today he came second, also with a net seventy five but losing the count back to Kevin.  We also had two more players on the same score and on the count back Don Everett came third and Peter Henshaw fourth.

1st Kevin O’Sullivan (14) net 75

2nd Joe Peters (22) net 75

3rd Don Everett (22) net 75

4th Peter Henshaw (23) net 75

Tuesday, June 13, Eastern Star – Stableford

1st John Carlin (17) 37pts

2nd Jerry Sweetnam (9) 35pts

3rd Jon Batty (6) 33pts

4th Kevin Blake (7) 32pts

We had four groups out here at Eastern Star, which is not too bad for this time of year.  We found the course in reasonable condition and although the greens had recently been cored and sanded, but they were ok.  It is excellent value for money at the moment and well worth playing.

John Carlin certainly likes this course and he was the winner today with thirty seven points.  Jerry Sweetnam again also played well on what he probably regards as his home track and came second with thirty five points.  Jon Batty took the third place with thirty three and Kevin Blake was fourth on thirty two.

We were back here again today for our usual Thursday game at Burapha on another beautiful day for golf.  We played the A and B courses and as usual gave our players a choice of tees, blue or white and we had some very good scores off both.

Gerry Hannan was the winner off the blue tees with thirty seven points, which at 6,800 yards is an excellent score.  Jerry Sweetnam was again steady and came second with thirty five points and Jon Batty came third with thirty four.

Off the white tees, Stephen Doyle had the best score of the day and was the winner with thirty eight points, which included a birdie ‘2’.  Russell Gilroy also beat his handicap and came second with thirty seven and this also included a ‘2’.  Andy Featherstone took the third place with thirty six points.
