Ladies’ Results

June 6: A sunny af­ter­noon with hot and dry­ing berg winds made con­di­tions un­com­fort­able for the 24 play­ers who played a Stable­ford al­liance with two-to-count on the par fours and fives and just one to count on the par threes. Linda Dob­son, Jane Bladen and Dee Jones-Phillip­son carded 78 points to win the af­ter­noon’s pro­ceed­ings. Wendy Couni­han, Sandy Fryer and Margie Reid were just one point off the pace to scoop sec­ond po­si­tion with Margie Siegers, Heather van Harme­len and Kirsten Dale one more fur­ther back to come third. Bet­tine Hat­tingh, Kim Gard­ner and Mau­reen McGarvie also carded 76 points only to be counted out on that score. Both Wendy and Linda holed birdies on the par three eighth. The week’s long­est drive com­pe­ti­tions were held on the 18th and struck by Margie Siegers and Sandy Fryer in the lower and higher hand­i­cap sec­tions re­spec­tively. Top Car­pets’ sixth hole saw Linda’s drive clos­est to the hole with Joy Alt­son do­ing like­wise on Rose­hill Mall Driv­ing Range’s 8th and Linda Dob­son on Wimpy’s 11th. Yvonne Hill’s sec­ond shot on the 13th was clos­est to this hole spon­sored by River Spa. The best nett rounds of the day were shot by Heather van Harme­len (66), Linda Dob­son (68) and Gift Wal­lace (69). The com­pe­ti­tion on July 19 will be an In­di­vid­ual Stable­ford spon­sored by Viv Jor­dan with the Lady Gra­ham Cup at stake.

Fresh Stop Port Al­fred Mixed

June 10: The hot berg wind con­di­tions play­ing so much havoc and dis­tress on the Gar­den Route at present made an ap­pear­ance at the RPAGC on Satur­day morn­ing mak­ing play­ing con­di­tions most dif­fi­cult. Many a po­ten­tial player de­cided to curl up in bed rather than face the course and only 21 play­ers turned out to play the usual mixed two-to-count Stable­ford al­liance in three- and four-balls Un­der the cir­cum­stances, the win­ning score of 87 points carded by Rob Turner, Heather van Harme­len, Margie and Brian Reid was ex­cel­lent. Sec­ond placed Lynn West, Glyn­nis Renecle and Derek Sin­clair on 80 + 5 = 85 was also very good con­sid­er­ing the con­di­tions. On the other hand Saskia Ho­moet, Nick Oosthuizen and Bar­rie Brady could only card 69 + 5 = 74 points to win naught but the re­cu­per­a­tive en­ergy drinks sup­plied by the spon­sor. There were no sub 70 nett scores, nor did any­body sink a two-club. Bar­rie won the spon­sor’s bot­tle of wine for be­ing clos­est to the pin on the eighth.

KGB Results

Tues­day June 6: Icy, east­erly winds chilled the bod­ies of the 37 play­ers who turned out to tee off in the usual two-to-count Stable­ford al­liance drawn into three three-balls and seven four-balls. Nev­er­the­less, as the wind quickly moved from the east to the north, berg winds rapidly had the tem­per­a­tures soar­ing into the early 30s mak­ing for un­com­fort­able con­di­tions. Neil Loundar, Ger­ald Church­ley, Gor­don Den and Terry Harris dove­tailed well to card a win­ning 92 points. John Ab­bott, Bryan Robin­son, Bob Shaw and Cliff Roberts came home sec­ond with 88. It was not a good day for the three-balls as (1) Eric Segers, Eu­gene Eras­mus and Nick Oosthuizen and (2) Len Bohnen, Andy Man­son and Gra­ham Find­lay both carded 67 + 5 = 72 points to share the Hamer en Sukkel tro­phy at the 19th hole. Gor­don Den had a good day net­ting a fine 65 and Bryan Robin­son would have been most pleased with his nett 68. Ger­ald Church­ley holed the only par three birdie of the morn­ing (13th) to win the two-club pool for his covey.

Fri­day June 9: They say that where there is no sense, there are no feel­ings. To prove a point 17 in­trepid (or crazy) play­ers did turn up for the KGB draw on Fri­day morn­ing de­spite a healthy breeze blow­ing and tem­per­a­tures well down into the sin­gle fig­ures. It did get warmer as the morn­ing wore on, but only up into the still very chilly lower teens. So with blue lips and numb fin­gers, the field was drawn into three three-balls and two four-balls to play the usual two-to-count Stable­ford al­liance. Paul Fryer, Len Bohnen and Gra­ham Find­lay carded 82 + 5 = 87 points to win the com­pe­ti­tion. Run­ners-up Neil Loundar, Andy Man­son and Brian Reid were two off the pace on 85. Bot­tom of the points list and cus­to­di­ans of the Hamer en Sukkel tro­phy for the day were John Ab­bott, Dave Cur­ran and vis­i­tor Don Thomp­son on 72. There were no two-clubs and only Len Bohnen man­aged an in­di­vid­ual nett score of note (68).
