Monday, Dec. 17, Phoenix Gold – Stableford

We were playing the Mountain and Lakes courses at Phoenix today in near perfect conditions. The course was in great shape with fast greens and the 6 groups out returned some pretty good scores.

There was a count back for the minor places between Capt Bob, Emmett White and Sandy Chapo, all on 32 points, with Sandy taking fifth spot, Emmett fourth and the Capt. getting the bronze.  Miss Sasicha filled the runner-up position with 35 points, one behind the day’s winner, Bob Scott.

There were no ‘2’a recorded today.

Wednesday, Dec. 19, Green Valley – Stableford

The course was unusually empty for this time of year, which just added to an enjoyable day. The scores overall could only be classified as average for finishing in third place for the ladies was Miss Sasicha (H/cap 21) with 32 points, four points behind Miss Nu (16) whose score could have been better but for 2 blobs on the way home. Miss Pin (20) had a good steady round for her 39 points but was kept below the 40 point mark with two 1-pointers on the back nine.

Selwyn Wegner (15) could only muster 7 points on the last 5 holes and 33 points for third place in the men’s flight. Peter Thomas (18) couldn’t believe his start to the round with 10 points on the first 3 holes, only to be brought down to earth with 9 points on the last 4 holes in each half. It is becoming difficult to unseat Wayne Cotterell (13) from the top of the leader board at the moment and he came first for the third week running with 36 points.

Surprisingly, there were no ‘2’s again today.

Friday, Dec. 21, Burapha – Stableford

We all know that the greens at this course are some of the best you will putt on, but today was not the case and they were extremely slow. Now, in saying all that, the scores were not too bad and it was also a beautiful day for golf.

Taking third place on the day was Bob Scott with 34 points, second went to Rick Culley with 36 and Colm Lawler took the main prize with 37 points. I might add that these scores were the exception as the rest of us lowly golfers managed to just get a maximum of 30 points.
