Green Valley

1st game back at Green Valley for almost 3 months , this time because they had vericut the greens on Silky Oak last Monday. Because of the renovation work on Green Valley we had placing on the fairways away from the burnt areas, The rest of the course was OK except for hole 11 where they had dug up all the fairway in front of the green and filled it full of sand ready to lay turf, Why then didn’t they place the pin at the back of the green instead of just past the sanded area.  WE had 15 players so 2 flights with 2 places and 4 near pins.  A flt was won by Gary Emmett with a good 38 pts the highlight of the round an eagle 2 on hole 14 for 5 pts to finish one shot ahead of Paul West with 37 pts just ahead of Peter Petersen from Iceland with 35 pts of his 4 Hcp. B flt was  the return of the donkey despite being under Aidans dreaded (R) managed a steady 18 pts front and back just to beat Steve Coghlan on countback

Burapha A & B

After a couple of days and nights of heavy rains we had 4 No shows which was expected and the forecast was for more of the same today ,But as everone thought Hillary was to be the next president the weather men got it wrong again. 13 brave souls made it to the course under grey sky’s, but as soon as we got changed so did the sky’s. The course very wet but perfectly playable for the long hitters which left out the scribe. A flt was once again under the control of Kevin Mc Entee with 3 birdies and one blob for 37 pts,and in 2nd place Peter Petersen with 31 pts also with a blob on B2 the same as Kevin but his 18 pts on the back beat  Peter Hynard on count back also with 31 pts. B flt was a repeat of Monday with the man in form Tip Briney with the best score of the day 38 pts, one ahead of Rod Brown with 37 pts Kevin & Martin Solberg claimed the near pin’s


A flt    1st    Kevin Mc Entee      (6)                37 pts
