First off a quick sorry for the lateness of this report, my work PC died on Monday morning, so I had to wait until I could get to another machine.
We had 14 players for our Ambrose game this year at the very nice Royal Pines championship course; thankfully it did not include the blue nine, which from past experience can very quickly destroy any high handicappers.
We went with more sociable pairings this year, as we had a number of family/spouse/visitor friend’s combinations to accommodate.
I think this worked out alright, but if you would rather different partnership at any time just ask and I’ll see if I can shuffle folks into groups they would prefer?
The game itself came down to two pairs who would appear to have been on fairly hot form, those being Jane & Andrew and Owen & Dan, these groups came at nearly 5 to 6 shots better than the next pair.
The person going home with the most (golf) balls was Andrew who cleaned up all three of the available NTP & LD men's prizes. This left only the female LD prize which went to Liz Muenchow.
Of the rest of us , well I think Mark & David were traumatised by watching Ian & Howard belting the ball around, Ken & Karen have both just before the game got new clubs (we’ve all been there) so they can be forgiven, Liz & Janine went in with the highest overall Hcp & played close to that & then Rodney and myself couldn’t decide who would hit it wild and long & who would hit safe and short, so we both hit short and not very safe, so we didn’t really give ourselves too many par & birdie chances.
Now for the results:
NTP 7th and 14th Andrew Mather
LD Men's Andrew Mather
LD Ladies Liz Muenchow
1st place on (Nett) 62.50pts Dan Williams and Owen Wright
2nd on 63.50 Jane Hughes and Andrew Mather
3rd on 68.25 Ian Smith and Howard Ward
4th on 68.50 Rodney Topor and Paul Lockwood-lee
5th on 72.25 Janine Walker and Liz Muenchow
6th on 72.50 Mark and David Coster
7th on 74.50 Karen and Ken Greedy
Thanks to all those who came out to play, hope to see you all soon.
Next game is 12th September at Carbrook.
