CAFÉ KRONBORG 4/3
MRS BROWN BEATS THE BOYS
CAFÉ KRONBORG AT PLEASANT VALLEY 4TH MAR 2019
Cafe Kronborg played Pleasant Valley on Monday 4th March, where the course was in good condition with fast greens, yes fast greens at Pleasant Valley. Couple this with pin placements which maximised the effect of the slopes, a putting roller coaster of a day ensued. We nearly didn’t make it as the traffic was stacked up to the Toll booth at km 100 due to a jack knifed lorry narrowing the road to 2 tight lanes some 15 km further on. We only just made our tee time and other groups gave up, some of our group wished we hadn’t made it either.
Back in the clubhouse the cards evidenced the golfing carnage, with only one person matching their handicap and no-one beating their handicap. A flight struggled a bit playing off the blue tees, some of which were on the black tees.
There were 2 flights with the A flight 0 to 23 and the B flight 24 and above.
The A Flight winner was Henning Olsen, with a respectable 33 points. Henning struggling lately, but always managing a good score once in a while to confirm his A flight credentials. Lotte Boskov was second with 32 points, Lotte hitting some form and making the podium 2 times in a row. Third and fourth places were decided on countback with 2 players having 31 points. Ronnie Ratte taking third place with a countback of 14 points, relegating Rob Brown into fourth with his countback of 13 points.
In B Flight the winner was Karen Brown with a sterling 36 points, the score of the day. Karen raising the standards and putting to bed the disappointment of missing out on the prizes last time due to a countback. Second was Gordon Clegg with a respectable 33 points, Gordon not managing to repeat his feat of hitting the 5th green and rolling up close, however he was not alone. Third place was claimed by Steen Habersaat with 32 points, a podium regular and fourth place was claimed by Jan Lovgreen with 31 points, also a podium regular.
The journey home was a chance to reflect on what might have been and thankfully was delay free.
