January Wrap Up! Ladies golf.

Andrea also had a chip out on hole 10. Judy Reilly played 9 holes and had a superb score of 19 points, plus took out the NTP on hole 8.

January 21st – Perfect weather brings out the golfers! Seven ladies took to the course today with variable results. The winner with 34 points was Sharyn Roberts.

The extra comp was Par 4’s and Sharyn won this with 19 pts. NTP on hole 8 went to Andrea Rowe.

January 28th – In warm conditions the ladies took the carts for a spin, making it a pleasant day for them. However, cart golf did not improve the scores will all 4 players finishing with mediocre results. The trees were not our friends! Best of a bad bunch was Sharyn Roberts, winning with 27 points. Runner Up was Marj Wride on 26 pts, followed by Di Day 25 pts & Peg Gebhardt 22 pts. The extra comp was Drives on Fairway and the winner was Di Day with 10 on countback from Marj & Sharyn.

Dave Robbie in Rare Form

David “Robbie” Robinson took out Saturday’s stableford with a stunning score of 46 points. Some sympathy must be felt for runner up, Andy Spackman, who scored an impressive 44 points. Robbie has been threatening to post a score for some time and must have finally got his tee shots to go where he wanted them to. There was a big gap to third placed Mark “Mouldy” Millward and there were a number of scores under 30. A count back was required to decide the Mars Bar which went to Brett Wallis from Eddie “The Flying Dutchman” Van Keulen. Thier scores were so low we have decided not to share them with you.

Results:

  • 46 – David Robinson
  • 44 – Andrew Spackman
  • 38 – Mark Millward
  • 37 – Russell Wenzel
  • 35 – Richard Secomb
  • 34 – Trevor Maxted, Michael Tickner, Kobi Wenzel
  • 33 – Philip Thomson
  • 32 – Andrew Phillips
