Talk of the Town - - Grahamstown - ... the re­sults

take third place on 44. Ronel made the only two-club of the af­ter­noon sink­ing her putt on the sixth af­ter be­ing clos­est to the pin on this Top Car­pets’ hole. Glyn­nis Renecle was both clos­est to the pin on Rose­hill Driv­ing Range’s eighth and clos­est-for-two on River Spa’s 13th. In­grid Grif­fiths’ drive was near­est on Wimpy’s 11th. The long­est drive com­pe­ti­tions were held on the sixth hole and driven by In­grid Grif­fiths and Heather van Harme­len in the low and higher hand­i­cap sec­tions re­spec­tively. Some good nett scores were recorded, the best be­ing carded by Jane Bladen, Glyn­nis Renecle (67), Mau­reen McGarvie (68) and Cindy Claasens (69). The com­pe­ti­tion on Oc­to­ber 31 will be the an­nual Pic­ture match against the Ladies sec­tion from Gra­ham­stown and will be played at the Bel­mont Golf Club. KGB RE­SULTS Tues­day Oc­to­ber 24: A great morn­ing for golf weather wise ca­joled 32 play­ers to rise early and head for the RPAGC to en­ter the draw for KGB’s two-to-count Stable­ford al­liance. The field was drawn into eight four-balls and the Por­tuguese Con­ven­tion was ap­plied where 1 bonus point was avail­able for any team shoot­ing three net birdies or bet­ter on any hole. Mak­ing the best of both the rules and the con­di­tions, Andy Man­son, Dale Wisener, Matt Chad­wick and Gavin Richards carded a match win­ning 99 points to out­play their com­pe­ti­tion. Bryan Robin­son, Rus­sel War­ren, Mike Stadler and Hugh Holmes came home sec­ond on a rather dis­tant 94. It was a par­tic­u­larly awk­ward day for Martin Lam­brechts, Richard Farn­dell, John Dell and Eugene Eras­mus as they carded an ul­tra-low 74 points to fin­ish up way be­hind the rest of the field. Their pun­ish­ment was to share their 19th hole ta­ble with the much to be avoided Hamer en Sukkel tro­phy. Par three birdies were sunk by Roger Kid­son (eighth) and Cliff Roberts (sixth), the lat­ter win­ning the 2-club kitty for his covey. Rus­sel War­ren shot a su­perb nett 65 with both Matt Chad­wick and Gavin Richards just one shot be­hind on 66. Other good nett scores were carded by Tom Tagg, Cliff Roberts (68), Peter Reed and Kevin Reid (69). A mas­sive 97 points was carded by Colin Arm­strong, Wilton Ad­cock, Johny John­ston and John Mug­geridge to win the com­pe­ti­tion. Sec­ond placed Vino Bearzi, Mike Stadler, John Cran­don and Peter Longhurst were all of 6 points in ar­rears on 91. Even the fair Rosie Calmeyer-Leach could not res­cue her part­ners Ce­cil Grob­ler and Len Bohnen from the in­fa­mous Hamer en Sukkel at the 19th Hole. The three-ball carded a lowly 73 + 5 = 78 points. Par three birdies were holed by Colin, Wilton (sixth), Rosie and Der­ick van Harme­len (eighth). The best in­di­vid­ual nett scores were shot by Der­ick, Colin, Johny John­ston (67) and Paul Fryer (69). Fri­day Oc­to­ber 27: A rather driz­zly, grey morn­ing saw 30 play­ers drawn into six four-balls and two three-balls in a two-to-count Stable­ford al­liance. As the rain per­sisted soak­ing ev­ery one on the course, 10 play­ers re­turned to the drier climes of the club­house with­out fin­ish­ing the com­pe­ti­tion. These ten col­lec­tively were awarded the Hamer en Sukkel “in ab­sen­tia”. Of the twenty fin­ish­ers, the best scores were shared by (1) So­nia Reynolds, Mike Stadler, David Groe­newald and Martin Lam­brechts and (2) Tommy Meyer, Bryan Con­nack, Ge­orge Lake and Rosie Calmeyer-Leach, both teams card­ing 89 points. Tommy, Rus­sell War­ren (sixth), Len Bohnen (eighth) and Paul Fryer (13th) all sunk par three birdies on the holes in­di­cated. The best nett rounds were recorded by Mike Stadler (65), Bryan, Andy Man­son (67), Gavin Richards (68), Neil Loundar and Paul Fryer (69).
