Cafe Kronborg 12/3
BROWN’S CONSISTENCY CONTINUES
CAFÉ KRONBORG AT TREASURE HILL 12TH MAR 2018
Cafe Kronborg played at Treasure Hill Golf Club on Monday 12th March. The course was in excellent condition, with the recent wet weather making the fairways lush and the greens receptive. As normal the greens were fast paced, which made hitting the ball into the green below the hole a must and even then putting was tricky.
The journey to the course was again less than an hour, which makes Treasure Hill and the courses in this area much more accessible. Treasure Hill certainly deserves our business as it offers a superb rate for walkers and carters alike and the course is nearly always in great condition. However, the last couple of times we played here the rains put paid to the golf, but today the sun was shining and it didn’t seem possible for it to start raining!
We managed to Tee off a little early, which was good as we had only been allocated half an hour to get 7 groups off, somewhat a little tight. With no one ahead of us the groups moved well and in just over 4 hours our group had completed the challenge that is Treasure Hill. All the groups followed promptly behind us and the picture soon emerged that most people had struggled and the scores were pretty poor. No-one was even close to beating their handicap.
There were 2 flights with the A flight 0 to 22 and the B flight 23 and above.
The A Flight winner was Rob Brown with 34 points, once again the best score of the day and the lowest gross playing off his 7 handicap. In second place was Richard Kubicki with 33 points, a superb 21 points on the front was followed by a dire 12 points on the back, funny how the game can turn on a sixpence. Third and fourth places were decided on countback with both players having 31 points. A surprised Ty Anderson came third winning a countback for a change with a countback of only 13 points, beating Jan Lovgreen into fourth place with a countback of only 12 points. Seems that it wasn’t just Richard who had struggled on the back nine.
In B Flight the golfers unsurprisingly struggled even more than the A flighters and the points scored overall were low to say the least. Taking first place was Kurt Sandgaard with a very respectable 33 points, Kurt continuing his recent good form. Second was Carole Kubicki with 32 points, one too many good drives and chances wasted to get to a winning score, but respectable non-the-less as Treasure Hill is especially difficult for the ladies. Third was the returning Tore Eliassen with 31 points and fourth was Marie Jany with 28 points and a first visit to the winners enclosure this trip.
On this day the golfing gods were with us and it didn’t rain until we were in the mini bus starting our journey back, thankfully.
