The KGB saw 21 players report for the draw and be drawn in seven 3balls to contest one another in a Stableford Alliance 2-scores-tocount format with all three to count on the par threes and a bonus point for a “sandy”, a par from a bunker.
In calm conditions Derick van Harmelen, John Dell and Paul Fryer compiled 92 points to take first place. Jimmy van Rensburg, Peter Longhurst and Bob Shaw, on their heels, finished in second on 90 points.
John Abbott, Andy Barnes and Eugene Erasmus took a longer route home as they compiled 79 points to secure the Hamer & Sukkel.
Derick van Harmelen, Peter Reed and Neil Loundar all birdied the par three 6th and Tony Halse did likewise on the par three 8th. The 2-club pool was therefore carried over.
Ross Grainger shot a worthy 69 nett individual score but that was not enough to knock Derick van Harmelen off his perch with his individual round of the day of 68 nett.
Friday 14th October 2022
Early morning rain with a weather forecast predicting skies clearing after 8am saw 17 golfers enticed into the draw to compete in an Alliance Stableford 2-scores-tocount competition in three 3-balls and two 4-balls. Forecasts, as per usual, were not cast in concrete and persistent drizzle developing into heavier precipitation toward the end of the round saw the 3-balls avoiding the worst of conditions with Russell Warren, Rick Hill and Donald McGarvie surging to victory on a well-played 91 (86+5) points. Derick van Harmelen, Don Thomson and Heinz Czepluch took a comfortable second position on 84 (79+5) points. Bedraggled and damp Jimmy van
Rensburg, Andy Barnes, John Dell and Paul Fryer trudged home on 71 points to take the Hamer & Sukkel.
No 2-clubs were recorded, and the pool was carried over for the second time.
The only player worthy of mention for his fine individual performance was Donald McGarvie returning a 69 nett.
