Septem­ber 5: The west­erly that ar­rived and strength­ened on cue, know­ing it was the ladies’ af­ter­noon, ob­vi­ously scared off a num­ber of play­ers and a small field of 13 play­ers even­tu­ally teed off to com­pete in the monthly Pick n Pay-spon­sored In­di­vid­ual Medal an Putting Ohls­son’s Cup. Over­all win­ner was Pogs Smith on a count-out from Liz Lam­brechts on 74 nett which was pretty good con­sid­er­ing atro­cious con­di­tions. In the Sil­ver divi­sion Pogs was win­ner over He­len Lock­year in sec­ond spot with a nett 75. Pogs and Shirley Heny shared the putting hon­ours with 32 putts each. Liz won the Bronze divi­sion over Sandy Fryer in sec­ond spot with her nett 75 points. Mau­reen McGarvie was out­right putting win­ner in this divi­sion with 32 putts. Shirley showed not only a deft touch on the putting green but pow­ered to the long­est drive in hand­i­cap sec­tion 21 and un­der while Kirsten Dales did sim­i­larly in the higher hand­i­cap cat­e­gory. Glyn­nis Renecle was near­est to the pin on Top Car­pets’ sixth hole and just to reaf­firm her skill did the same on Rose­hill Driv­ing Range’s eighth and prove her worth. No one was suc­cess­ful on find­ing the green on Wimpy’s 11th while Shirley main­tained the lime­light by be­ing near­est for two on Hal­yard Spa’s 13th. No two-clubs were recorded.


Septem­ber 9: A calm tem­per­ate morn­ing greeted the five women and nine men that turned up to play a 2-to-count Stable­ford Al­liance com­pe­ti­tion on the tem­po­rary greens in play. Glyn­nis Renecle, Mau­reen McGarvie, Len Bohnen and Der­ick Sin­clair stormed home to win with an im­pres­sive 97 points with Heather van Harme­len, Margie Reid and Brian Reid in sec­ond on 91 points. Not so happy were Bruce Smith, Pogs Smith, Fanie Smit and Bar­rie Brady who posted a dis­ap­point­ing 80 points to claim re­sus­ci­ta­tion in the form of En­er­gade. Len Bohnen was re­ported to have the only 2-club of the morn­ing and Margie claimed the bot­tle of wine for near­est the pin on the eighth. Mau­reen’s nett 66 was the best nett of the day fol­lowed closely by Glyn­nis with a nett 67. Best nett not in a win­ning covey went to Fanie with a nett 70.


Tues­day Septem­ber 5: Strong winds that started with a breath of warmth chilled as the day pro­gressed saw 27 play­ers brave tough con­di­tions in the nor­mal two-to-count Stable­ford al­liance com­pe­ti­tion. Neil Loundar, Paul Fryer, Bar­rie Brady and Mar­tin Lam­brechts carded a com­pe­ti­tion win­ning 87 points on a day that had scores re­flect­ing play­ing con­di­tions. John Cran­don, Guy Cash, John Dell and Bob Shaw filled sec­ond po­si­tion with 85 points. Eric Segers, Richard Farn­dell, Len Bohnen and Gra­ham Fin­lay lit­er­ally breezed in with a lowly 74 points to se­cure the Hamer and Sukkel. Ce­cil Grob­ler suc­ceeded with a two-club on the eighth hole whilst Peter Reed with his two-club on the sixth took the pool on of­fer. In­dica­tive of con­di­tions no nett scores un­der 70 were recorded.

Fri­day Septem­ber 8: A touch of the ap­proach­ing sum­mer com­pen­sated for the tem­po­rary greens in play and en­cour­aged 21 play­ers to com­pete in seven three-balls with a two-to-count Stable­ford Al­liance com­pe­ti­tion in play. Dale Wisener, Andy Barnes and Heinz Czepluch com­bined to score 86 points and emerge vic­to­ri­ous ahead of Colin Mavuso, Mar­tin Lam­brechts and John Mug­geridge who fin­ished on 84 points in sec­ond place. Not en­joy­ing the sum­mer weather or tem­po­rary greens Cliff Roberts, Nick Oosthuizen and Brian Reid posted an ex­tremely mea­gre 68 points to suf­fer the ig­no­min­ious hon­our of the Hamer & Sukkel on their ta­ble at prize giv­ing. No birdies were recorded on the ad­justed par 3s. Colin would have been pleased with the gross 71 he recorded and good net scores of 69 were recorded by John Dell and Eric Segers. Der­rick van Harme­len how­ever re­served him­self for the best nett round of the day with a 64 to com­plete a highly en­joy­able day.
