May 9: A cool, but bright and sunny afternoon with moderate westerly winds greeted the 24 players who turned out to play an individual Stableford competition sponsored by Viv Jordan.
Continuing her recent spell of good form, Glynnis Renecle shot a great nett 68 to card 40 points and win the afternoon’s proceedings.
Dee Jones-Phillipson was just one point in arrears on 39 to take second place, just pippin third placed Kim Gardner (38).
Lillian Neave was closest to the pin on Top Carpet’s sixth and went on to birdie the hole.
Similarly, Kim was closest on Wimpy’s 11th where she also made a two-club.
Bridget McNellis was nearest the pin on Rosehill Driving Range’s eighth and Shirley Heny was “nearestfor-two” on River Spa’s 13th.
There were longest drive competitions on the 10th but nobody from the lower handicap section managed to hit the fairway.
Not true for those in the higher handicap section, however, where Bettine Hattingh hit the longest drive.
The competition on May 23 will be a better-ball Matchplay with the Ruth Kelly trophy at stake.
Tuesday May 9: A chilly but bright morning set the tone for Tuesday’s KGB golf, with moderate westerly winds needing to be taken into consideration. Thirty-five players were drawn into one three-ball and eight four-balls to play the usual two-to-count Stableford alliance.
There seemed to be a wide spectrum of results depending upon how individuals and teams handled the chilly breezes.
The winning covey consisting of Wilton Adcock, Dave Curran, Bryan Robinson and Paul Fryer carded 94 points with two covies (1) Martin Weaver, Tom Tagg, Andy Manson and Brian Shirley sharing second spot with (2) Steve Kennedy, Vino Bearzi, Bryan Connack and Rosie Calmeyer-Leach, each with 87 points.
Way behind the leaders, Barrie B Brady, Dale Wisener, Ray Hicks and Mike McNamara could only muster 72 points to land them in the unenviable position of familiarising themselves with the notorious Hamer en Sukkel trophy at the 19th hole.
Brian Shirley made a two-club on the 11th. Paul Fryer made two par three birdies, one on the 11th and the other on the 13th.
The best nett scores were shot by Hugh Holmes, Brian Shirley, Paul Fryer (67), Bryan Connack (68), Graham Findlay and Rosie Calmeyer-Leach (69).
