Thursday, March 23, Crystal Bay – Stableford

Crystal Bay was was our venue on Thursday and we went there with 2 groups and played the B and C courses, which were in reasonable condition but there were many bad spots on the fairways.  The greens on the B-course were fast and on the C-course a little slower while the bunkers didn’t have enough sand in them.  The weather was quite warm but our second group ended their round in a big rain shower.

The man of the day was Dave Smith who won with 42 points.  Jonathan Pratt came second with 34 points and Stan Rees was third with 31.

Near pins were claimed by Willem Lasonder, Dave Smith and Stuart Banks.
