Cafe Kronborg 05/01
NEW YEAR NEW FORMAT
Cafe Kronborg started the New Year with a scramble competition instead of its regular stableford format.
This was a tight competition enjoyed by all, with only one group breaking net 60 and less than 7 shots separating the remaining groups. We played at Silky Oak whose quirky layout was well suited to a scramble competition, and all groups had at least one member with the firepower to clear the daunting water carries.
After a multitude of questions, some valid, some bizarre, the competition got off without a hitch and surprisingly when the cards came in nearly all were legible and correctly filled in.
The winning group was the pre-tournament favourite, having the lowest handicap, of Rob & Karen Brown and Richard & Carole Kubicki with a hot 57.5 net. Although their round started ominously with a bogey they fought back to one under for the front and then put the after burners on, with 6 birdies and 3 pars on the back nine.
In second place with a solid 60.8 was the Danish group of Torben Sorensen (who has lived in Canada for many years), Kai Aabling, Peter Bygballe and Jan Lovgreen. Third was a three ball of Henning Olsen, Jan Badura and Thorbjorn Asmunsden with 65.1. It was nice to see a three ball making the grade as with one less player it’s that bit harder, especially as they told me that one of their members had found the water carries impossible.
It was a fun day and we’re planning to have another scramble in February as there were several requests to do it again before the end of the season.
