The Flying Dutchman Returns (again)!

Club members were delighted once again to see the smiling face of Eddie “The Flying Dutchman” Van Keulen after an absence due to age related health issues.

The competition played was a par round arguably the greatest test in golf, match play against the course. Some still argue that stroke play is the real test but they are ignoring the facts (perhaps their place is in politics) as a small piece of bad luck can destroy a stroke round.

Four players managed to beat the course with Dick Cleland doing so in emphatic manner.

Two Richards Too Good

Richard “Dick” Secomb & Richard “Dick” Cleland scored 40 stableford points each to beat Saturday’s field comfortably by 2 strokes. Dick Secomb got off to a flyer scoring 23 points on the outward 9 while Dick Cleland scored a solid 19 points. At this point Sam Cleland appeared to be in the best position to challenge with a score of 22. Sadly lack fitness showed for both these players and they faded on the homeward 9. Dick Cleland on the other hand showed fitness to be no problem improving to 21 points on the back 9 to claim the win on a count back. Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel showed fitness is not an issue if you use a cart finishing third with 38.
