Monday, May 28, Phoenix Gold – Stableford
Phoenix on a very hot day and we played Mountain and Lakes nines from the white tees. The course is in fantastic condition, being readied for the Thai LPGA tournament coming up and the King’s Cup soon after.
With only 3 groups playing today we got away a little early and were finished in just on 4 hours. Only six out of 14 players managed to score better than 30 points and in third spot was Lloyd Shuttleworth with 32, on a count back over Capt Bob. Second place went to Kiwi Bill with a fine 36 points and the top place was occupied by Pete Sial with 37. There were no ‘2’s recorded.
Wednesday, May 30, Green Valley – Medal
Green Valley today for the monthly medal, proudly sponsored by Brian Chapman of Haven Consultants. With 4 groups of ladies and 6 groups of men it was a good day out for all concerned. The rain tried to stay away and almost did but we did get a sprinkle for the last three holes. The course itself is in great condition and the greens had been lightly sanded but were good to putt on. It was a bit hot until the light rain fell but after that it was perfect for golf.
The scoring was to say the least fantastic, with some scores that would win any tournament on a normal day not even getting a mention in dispatches.
In the ladies flight there was a count back for second place on net 66, with Miss Prae getting the edge over Miss Porn. The medal went to Miss Poopay with a net 64, a great round of golf indeed. There were three ‘2’s, coming from Noodle, Lynn and Da.
In the men’s tournament the scores were of the same caliber with a count back on net 66 that saw Dave Smith take second, Bob Newell third and Brian Chapman in fourth. Jeff North won the trophy with a great net 65, which equated to 76 off the stick.
There were three ‘2’s, coming from Dave Smith, Bob Newell and Keith Allen.
Friday, June 1, Burapha – Stableford
We played B and D loops for a change on Friday, something we haven’t done for years, in very hot conditions. There was a spell of about an hour for the storm to pass over and then it was back to work. The course was in great condition but the scribe should have stayed in bed, scoring only 3 points on the first six holes.
With four groups we were away a little early and apart from the storm delay around in no time. The scoring was good but not great, with a countback needed to determine the minor places. Rick Culley took second spot over Lloyd Shuttleworth, both with 34 points, while top place went to Paul Greenaway by a narrow margin with 35 points.
There was only one ‘2’, coming from Lloyd Shuttleworth.
