Wednesday 20 July 20th, Stroke and Catch-up June Bag-day qualifier:
Although the weather gods were kinder to us than in recent weeks, the course is still quite heavy underfoot, making low scores nigh-on-impossible! John Haynes Nett 68 impressed everyone, especially as that is his second Wednesday win in a row! Of course, that score was easily good enough to grab the top prize and qualify for the “bag play-off” at the end of the year. Your Loyal Scribe was the daily runner-up with a solid Nett 72, ( although there were other 72’s also, meaning a countback was required!) Not surprisingly, balls extended to 75! The other winners on the day, grabbed a ball for NTP’s on the 3rd ( Laurie Doyle), the 9th ( Happy Gilmore), the 12th (Barry Maltman) and the 15th (David Murch).
Saturday 23 July, Stableford:
On a day when the weather continued to shine on our intrepid golfers, it shone most favourably on our Captain, Ray ‘Happy’ Gilmore, who amassed an impressive 39 points. But, again, a countback was required to separate Happy from our runner-up, Aaron Henderson, who also accrued 39 points. Well done to both men. There were plenty of scores between 39 down to 34 because that’s where the ball rundown ended! Our NTP winners on the day were Hatty (3rd), Luke Patrick (5th), Trevor Porter (9th), Ken White (12th) and Junior Kempton (15th).
