Monday 4th November Parichat Stableford
No game here for a few weeks due to the renovation work on the course and not everyone’s favourite but we still play here with a reasonable turnout every 5/6 weeks. Only one division out and Pete Sumner takes the podium position with 33 points. Vito Cirelli is second with 30 and Marc Brunner comes in third with 29 points.
Only one nearest the pin winner in two divisions for Pete Sumner on the 14th and in the twos, no winners in both divisions so a single rollover in division 1 and a triple in division 3 to Plutaluang.
Wednesday 6th November Plutaluang Stableford
Two divisions went out with the equal cut at 12 – 19 and 20+ for the North and West nines. No clouds and strangely a few spots of rain for two or three minutes as we began to tee off.
32 points was the best score of the day in both divisions. Dennis Scougall won division 1 with Tony Bernhagen second on 29, Bruce Gardner third on 28 and Per Forsberg with a 14/13 back nine countback beat the Durham boy John Hughes after two scores of 27 came in.
Colin James was the winner in division 2 with David Phillips beating William Chang on an 18/15 countback with two scores of 31 and Dave Howden was fourth with 29 points.
Nearest the pins Div. 1. Tony Bernhagen (3) and Les Smith.
Div. 2. Dave Howden, Colin James (2) and Gil Phillips.
No two’s in either division so all to play for at Treasure Hill.
There was a warm welcome return to Bob Comartin and Nooie and Theo Bahrt as well.
Friday 8th November Eastern Star Stableford
Another six groups out with an almost identical cut as of Wednesday in the two divisions but with some higher scores, surprisingly with the very slick greens. William Chang with 39 points had the best score winning division 2. Eugene McGuire was second on 38, Glyn Evans third on 34 and Tony Thorne fourth with 31.
Frank Kelly won division 1 with 34 points. Ron Lavette was second on 32. Three 30 pointers came in next, with a 17/17/16 back nine countback which knocked out Per Forsberg. Then came a 12/12 back six countback and a 6/4 on the last three holes needed for Paul Butler to beat Colin Aspinall.
Nearest the pins Div. 1. Bob Comartin, Nik Evans and Ron Lavette
Div. 2. William Chang and Gil Phillips.
No twos again so two rollovers in each division to Eastern Star next week.
