Vikings on the run


PSC Golf from Colin’s Bar Golf Society

Sunday, Jan. 31, Silky Oak – Stableford

We had just a small group for the Sunday’s game at Silky Oak and the competition was between Denmark and the Britsh Isles, with good old Blighty coming out on top.

Ajit Amin hit a bit of good form with a very steady 38 points to finish in first place and David Dunne took second with 34.  The Donkey had a bad day but still came in third on 32, leaving the Danish group sinking in their long boat.

This was our first trip to Royal Lakeside for a long while and the number of people who signed up (49 players) shows how popular this course is.  It’s only an hour away and when you get there it’s worth every minute of the journey.

Nat Rukkid – top scorer at Royal Lakeside.

We originally had 6 tee times booked but when we phoned on the morning of playing and asked for an extra 7 tee times we were told no problem, but when we arrived they had got our 10.19 tee time for 6 tees and added the other 7 tees  starting at 12,30. So after a little word with the starter we had 8 groups start on No 1, 2 groups on No 6 and 3 groups on No 10, all the problems solved and we all finished together so no problem with the 4 buses taking everyone home and back in Soi Buakhow for 5.30 pm.

We had 4 flights with three places in each and six technical awards to shoot for.

A flight was led by Christen Boysen with 40 points, one ahead of John Carlton in second while Gerd Riedler took third with 38.

B flight was led by the big hitting Peter Ennis with 39 points followed by Peter Hynard on 38 and Dave Lehane with 37, the latter very nearly getting a hole in one and only missing by an inch.

The unfamiliar name of Nat Rukkid led C flight with the day’s best score of 42 points.  PJ Mitchell rolled in second with 39 and Stu Mann, on his farewell appearance, took the last place on the podium with 38.

D flight was dominated by the fairer sex with Lorraine Percy leading the way with 39 points and just edging out New Satita on count back.  Wam Makmul secured third place with 38 points.

Near pins were claimed by Dave Lehane (No 3), Leo Mulvany (No 6), Tony Tolan (No 12) and Stu Mann (No 15).  The long putt awards went to Vinny Connellan and Peter Hynard.

We welcomed this week a group from the Armitage club in Dublin and Francis McClearnan and his group from west of Ireland.  Also Brian Orr, Archie Armstrong & Paul Walia from the Caddy Shack came to plunder our treasure chest.
