PSC 147th Monthly Tournament
Wednesday 11th November at Phoenix, Mountain & Ocean
Phoenix Gold was the choice for this, the 147th PSC Monthly with the Mountain & Ocean nines the combination as the Lakes nine was still not finished but we are told it will be open on January the first. There were several cancellations for various reasons but no actual “no-shows” and we ended up with a healthy field of 104. Registration went fairly smoothly and there were no latecomers to slow things down although the extra players over and above what we had booked did cause a bit of waiting time throughout the day but most players were patient and there were few complaints.
Golf Chairman Maurice Roberts together with Peter Blackburn, Dick Warberg and Mark West (not on crutches but hobbling with a walking stick and an umbrella after his recent knee surgery) arrived at the course early to prepare for the players arrival, together with the Phoenix Gold staff who were on hand and extremely helpful. Thanks were also given out to Tom Herrington who took the Winner’s Photos. On this occasion the A Flight played Medal off the Blue Tees, B Flight played Stableford off the White Tees and C & D Flights played Stableford off the Yellow Tees with Ladies/Seniors playing Stableford off the Red & Silver Tees.
The Low Gross winner on the day was David Rose (3) who carded a 78 gross.
‘A’ Flight, playing medal was won by Narula Narongsak (12) who won on countback from Bill McGarvie and Gerd Riedler after all had a net 74.
‘B’ Flight was won by Bjorn-Olof Noren with 42 points.
‘C’ Flight was won by Peter Bygballe (20) who had 41 points.
‘D’ Flight winner was Karl Beter (30) who won on countback from Carl Hellstrom & Colm O’Donovan with all of them scoring 38 points.
In the Ladies/Seniors Flight it was Lise-Lotte Boskov (20) who was declared the winner after scoring a magnificent 44 points.
50/50 Draw Winner was Svend Hommell.
The presentation and prize giving was this time back at Jamesons and the food was terrific and plenty of it. Many thanks to Kim Fletcher and staff for an excellent buffett.
Time for the Presentation and Peter Blackburn welcomed all and introduced Golf Chairman Maurice Roberts who expressed his appreciation to today’s players and those who assisted him at the course and to the PSC office staff for the pre-tournament work. Maurice provided an update on Green Fee vouchers with the news that negotiations were currently underway with several golf courses. Maurice also thanked Judy & Moon for assisting by selling the 50/50 tickets.
Peter then announced the winners and Maurice, Dick & Andre presented the prizes followed by the Lucky Draw and 50/50 Draw.
