Today, 22 eager golfers found a course still in good condition despite all the recent rain and carts were allowed off the paths. We played from the white tees and found plush fairways, greens running true and clean bunkers. But if you ventured from the fairways you could find yourself in deep trouble.

Keith Buchanan was having his last hit with us for a few weeks and was one of only two golfers to return with scores in the thirties. Keith greeted the A Flight judges with 30 points, one shot clear of second place getter Colm Lawler. Last spot on the podium went to Mashi Kaneta, having not come back for the presentation he would not be aware that he had made a podium finish.

B Flight welcomed back John Coetzee with the score of the round, an unbeaten 32 points. Second home was Colm Mullen, with Colin Stielow taking third one shot behind second and four off the leader.

Must be something about ‘mug day’ and today we went with twenty-three golfers, ensuring that we were to play 2 flights off the white tees. The course was in great shape; fairways were good and greens ran true with the bunkers clean and raked.

A Flight saw Mashi Kaneta take first spot with net 70, two strokes clear of Josie Ryan. Third spot went to a count back and Bill Steinmann got the nod over Steve Younger.

B Flight found this month’s mug winner in the shape of Colin Stielow who had a very good score of net 67, placing him 4 strokes clear of second placed Don Richardson. Alex Field finished off the podium a further shot behind.
