Cafe Kronborg 23/02
RICHARD KUBICKI IN THE PINK OFF THE BLUE TEES
Cafe Kronborg played at Pleasant Valley on Thursday 23rd February, where the weather was calm and the fairways were lovely. However, the greens seemed to be possessed, they were running a bit on the slow side, but the grain seemed to have a major impact on the putts.
We tried something a little different today with the A Flight playing off the Blue Tees and the B Flight off the White Tees and the Ladies off their normal Red Tees. The A Flight was looking forward to the challenge and their scores were expected to be lower. As it turned out the B Flight came out in sympathy and had some of the worst scores I have ever seen off the White Tees at Pleasant Valley. No one in the field made the usual 40 points plus.
Back in the clubhouse it turned out to be ladies day, with them taking 3 of the 4 top spots.
There were 2 flights with the A flight 0 to 22 and the B flight 23 and above.
The A Flight winner was yours truly Richard Kubicki, returning to form after some swing changes, with 39 points and the best score of the day. Lotte Boskov was 2nd with a solid 37 points and Kjeld Ravn was 3rd with 33 points, not a bad score from the Blue Tees. Peter Bygballe was 4th with 32 points and Kai Aabling came 5th with 30 points.
In B Flight, the men playing off the White Tees must have visualised playing off the Blue Tees and the scores were not good. The Ladies however upped the standard and took the first 3 places. The winner with a fine 37 points was Hanne Erbs, followed by the other half of the Kubicki family, Carole Kubicki, who had 35 points to take 2nd place. Third was Ulla Ravn who had 32 points, (the fourth lady in the prizes). Then the B Flight men showed up, with 3 players on 30 points and the last 2 places being decided on countback. Gordon Clegg took 4th spot with a fine 20 points on the back and Graham Buckingham took 5th spot with 16 points on the back. Peter Hammond lost out after a storming front 9, he then struggled and only managed 13 points on the back.
This is my last write up for this season, as Carole and I are returning to the UK for a while and I would like to thank all the Café Kronborg golfers for their help, support and understanding. All being well, we’ll see you all in December. Farewell and good golfing.
