Players struggle in Treasure Hill deluge


PSC golf from Rendezvous Resort

Tuesday, May 7, Treasure Hill – Stableford

Tuesday was our monthly trip up the 331 to visit Treasure Hill, where we played from the White tees at around 6,700 yards.  The course was in good nick, however a big storm rolled through creating a bit of havoc for a while as greens were awash.

Sufficient numbers for 2 flights today, with the line being 0–16 & 17+.  Paul Smith (3) was the best of the day with 35 points, followed in by Tom Murray (10) with 30 points, while Owen Walkley (9) got third spot with 29 points.

The higher flight group did not fare too well in the scores, with Brian Maddox (21) leading the way with 29 points, while Iain Painter (19) was next best at 27 points & Chris Gee (22) filling out the podium with 26.

Near pins were spread around between Tom, Chris & Mam.

Thursday, May 9, Pleasant Valley – Stableford

Thursday saw us visit Pleasant Valley, somewhat in preparation for those expecting to play the PSC Monthly the following Friday.  The course was looking good, with fairways nicely grassed, however the greens are definitely on the long side, running slow & encouraging a lot of grain which results in them not rolling truly.

Scores were an improvement on Tuesday, with a count back required to separate 1st & 2nd, with Jeff Wylie (7) getting the nod over Clive Hoseason (20) 20/17, after both signed for 36 points.  Third spot went to Colin Quinlan (9) with 35 points, after he edged Jonathan Pratt (15) 19/15 on count back.

Near pins went to Colin, Graham, Owen & Clive.

Note:  Rendezvous Resort, Restaurant & Bar plays golf generally on Tuesday & Thursday, with the bar hosting prompt presentations on both days.  As a PSC affiliated venue we welcome ALL golfers, including ladies & seniors who have opted for the “Silver” tee option.  Call 089 094 1841 for scheduling or enquiries.  Hope to see you there, cheers & good golfing!
