Peters prevails on homeward stretch


IPGC Golf from The Tara Court

Sunday, March 31, Green Valley – Stableford

We were back at Green Valley today for our first time on a Sunday this year.  Now that the low season has arrived, and it is fairly quiet, we will be playing at Green Valley every Sunday until November. 

Again it was very hot today but as the course was quiet we got around quickly.  Joe Peters was our winner today with an excellent 39pts.  Joe had a bad start with only three points on the first three holes and seventeen on the front nine, which left him lagging behind his playing partner Frank McGowan.  He certainly made up for his bad start though with twenty two points on the back nine and left Frank trailing in second place with 34.

Joe Peters.Joe Peters.

Joe has been playing with us right from the start and also has the honour of being the winner of our very first Tara Court outing back in December last year at Mountain Shadow, where he also had an excellent 39pts and made history by winning our inaugural outing.  Although he has been in the winning enclosure many times since then, this is his first outright win.  Well done Joe!

There were no 2’s again today.

1st Joe Peters (18) 39pts

2nd Frank McGowan (15) 34pts

Tuesday, April 2, Bangpra – Stableford

A small group went to Bangpra today and as usual the course was in excellent condition with fast greens, which caught out most of the golfers and made the scoring less than good.  It is a pleasure playing golf now as all the courses are very quiet and play is fast.

Robert Hanson was the winner today with 32pts ahead of Phelim Moran in second with 31.  Again today there were no 2’s.

1st Robert Hanson (18) 32pts

2nd Phelim Moran (10) 31pts
