Talk of the Town



Tuesday September 13

On a cool morning with a fresh westerly wind, 28 participan­ts entered a Stableford Alliance 1score-to-count on the par 5s, 2scores-to-count on the par 4s and three scores-to-count on the par 3s.

Bonus points were also available for a “sandy”, a par from a bunker, as well as any covey that succeeded in four three-pointers or better on a hole.

Don Thomson, Arnie Schultz, Andy Stembridge and Fanie Smit took a secure grasp of proceeding­s to finish in worthy winners’ position on a return of 88 points.

Ross Grainger, Martinus Scheepers, Derick van Harmelen and Bob Shaw cruised into second on 84 points.

Neil Loundar, Heinz Czepluch, Andy Manson and Andy Barnes amassed a meagre 72 points to earn the right of the Hamer & Sukkel in their presence for prize giving.

No 2-clubs were recorded, resulting in a carryover pool. Friday September 16

A stunning Spring morning with a light westerly wind and temperatur­es in the mid-twenties saw 37 entrants drawn in three 3balls and seven 4-balls to compete in an Alliance Stableford 2-scoresto-count format with a bonus point if a covey achieved three points or better for each individual on a hole.

Barrie Brady, Don Thomson and Heinz Czepluch made short work of the opposition, posting 94 (89+5) points to finish runaway winners.
