Twenty golfers set out for today’s challenge, Pattavia, a course that does not inflate the pricing for high season and was once again in tip-top condition: fairways were excellent and the bunkers were clean and raked. We took the course on from the yellow tees and with the log jam we started proceedings from the 10th tee with two flights.

A flight saw Steve Younger take the honours with the best score of the day, 39 points. Second home, just a single point in arrears was Keith Buchanan while third past the post and again only a single shot behind was Stu Casa Rifkin.

B flight was also a close encounter but Tony Cook raised the flag with 38 points, one shot ahead of second placed Mikito Homma while third place went to Colm Mullen.

Fifteen golfers were all saddled up and ready to head out to Pleasant Valley GC. A great course that is priced better than most, and that is the attraction. The fairways, as always, were good, the greens ran true and the bunkers were clean and raked.

We were only playing the one flight from the blue tees with holes 12th & 14th to be played from the white tees, and of course all novelties were in play.

Mikito Homma hit some form today and returned 37 points, which was enough to see him cross the line first. Second on the podium was Dave Maw, falling a single point behind the leader while third place went to Alex Field on countback over Steve Younger.
