Tuesday, May 28, Crystal Bay – Stableford

On Tuesday we went with 3 groups to Crystal Bay where the B & C combination was played. The course was in reasonable condition but there were many bare places on the sides of the fairways. There is also still a big difference in the speed of the greens between the B and C courses. We had overcast weather so it was not too warm.

The course was not easy, with no roll after rain the night before, but this was no problem for Dave Smith who played a very consistent round with good drives and putts. He won the day with 40 stableford points ahead of Neil Harvey in second on 37 and Willem Lasonder third with 36.

The near pins went to Jonathan Pratt and Neil Harvey.

Thursday, May 30, Greenwood – Stableford

Greenwood was our venue on Thursday and the B & C course was the chosen challenge. The course was in perfect condition but there had been heavy rain the night before and this continued during our round also with a huge shower midway through.

Stan Rees was the most consistent under these circumstances and won with 38 points while Neil Harvey was again second with 35.

The near pin were claimed by Stan Rees and  Dave Smith.
