Redland Bay game 15th November 2015

Redland Bay game 15th November 2015

A great turn out for this later starting game – 18 players made it on for what turned out to be good dry (despite the forecast) weather.

The course was in good nick, except the greens that had been cored a few weeks earlier, but never mind we all had the same problems I think and judging by the scoring on a lot of cards people coped very well.

Well done to all those who managed 36 + points (and there was a few) Ken will ensure you get full recognition for your efforts.

Special note for Phil, we deemed it necessary and right that you did score your attendance point, which will keep you in the running with lots to play for in the final game on the 6th December.

Ash will be away for the last game & I myself may not make it either (if the surgeon doesn’t cancel on me again, no it’s not to fix my swing) so the field will be left open for potentially just 4 players to take the cup.

If I’m not there, good luck to you all & have a merry Christmas & new year.

Now for the results:

NTP on the 6th – Ash Misra

NTP on the 16th – Troy Grimshaw

Mens Long drive 18th – Ian Smith

Ladies Long drive 18th – Jane Mather

1st place on 43 points – Howard Ward

2nd place on 42 points (on count back) – Ian Smith

3rd place on 42 points – Peter Johnston 

Next game is on the 6th of December at Virginia 7.10am tee off.

Regards until then or after Xmas.

Gailes 18th October 2015

Gailes 18th October 2015

A good turnout of 16 players for our Gailes event.

The course - which is always pretty good - was in excellent condition as was the weather. Terrific timing by our club secretaries as they started coring the greens immediately after our round. 

Excellent scoring all round as this is usually one of our tougher tracks. Thank to Troy for coming back from his honeymoon just to play.

It was a slightly unusual round as it was relatively 'quiet' on the course with none of the usual 'Ken-isms' being heard around the course. And then we found out why ....apparently 42 pts keeps Ken otherwise occupied and he was a decisive winner on the day.

Good play by Jane, Bryan and David who were all well under par as well. 

1st - Ken Greedy
2nd - Jane Hughes
3rd - Bryan Kendall [ocb]

Ladies long drive - Jane
Mens long drive - Ian

Ntp 12th - Troy
Ntp 3rd - Dylan [welcome]
