MOUNTAIN SHADOW G.C. – 8th of April, 2019.

“Late accepter Rod Weekes takes the Prize for the second time!”


“Take It Easy HOLE in ONE BONUS is at B4,500.00”


Thirteen golfers came to play as our destination was The Shadow, Mountain Shadow! We had sixteen on the list to play but 2 pull outs and one no show dropped our numbers down.

Well there is still a lack of rain in the area curators have done the job as the course seemed to be in good condition. 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. Well after saying all that, that will be our last visit for about six months. Management has decided to close down the front nine holes to upgrade those nine holes. If you are to play the course you will be playing the back nine holes twice. Not sure if they are going to repeat this with the back nine once the front nine is finished!

We had a 9.30 Tee time as we had the opportunity to change from the allotted 10.30 tee time, and once again there were no hold ups as the course was near empty. We attacked the course from the Blue Tees! This can be adjusted on the day by The Captain of the Day. (Monday back tees, Thursday forward tees)

Playing only the one flight with three placing’s and all six novelties in play.

Rod Weekes, yet again as a late inclusion, came up with the game to win on the day. His 34 points put him one shot in front of second and third placing’s. Second had to be separated by our count back system. Winning that system was Keith Buchanan with Glenn Henriksen taking out third spot.



1st Rod Weekes (19) 34 points.

2nd Keith Buchanan (13) 33 points.

3rd Glenn Henriksen (13) 33 points.
