MOUNTAIN SHADOW G.C. – 4th of February, 2019.

PRH Grey.

“Dave Maw takes it out in a low scoring contest!”


“Take It Easy HOLE in ONE BONUS is at B3,500.00”


Twenty golfers came to play as our destination was The Shadow, Mountain Shadow!

Well I guess the lack of rain is what could cause us problems but the course seemed to be in good condition. Mt Shadow was in good nick as stated earlier, plush fairways, greens were true as they tend to be at this course and clean bunkers. But if you ventured from the fairways you could find yourself in deep trouble. (as was evident in today’s scores) There were no hold ups as yet again the course was near empty. We attacked the course from the Blue Tees. (Monday back tees, Thursday forward tees) This can be adjusted on the day by The Captain of the Day.

With twenty golfers we were able to play two flights (with three placing’s in each) and all six novelties in play.

A Flight saw Dave Maw take the podium first with 33 points he was hotly pursued by Keith Buchanan (falling one point shy). Third and final place on the podium went to Mashi Kaneta, and he was one point behind Kissy!

B Flight had Andrew, Turtle Allen take the lollies 32 points saw him clear at the top of the leader board, no log jam. (wait till you see these scores) Second placing went to Mikito Homma he was 7 points behind the leader. Third past the post was Patrick Poussier a solitary shot behind second. What a day for scores!

(Please be advised that by me bagging the scores is not a reflection on golfer’s ability, heaven forbid I would kill for any of the above scores)
