Knight Earns His Spurs at Burapha
The PLGS visited Burapha on 21st February to play a stableford competition on the C and
D combination, disappointing those who had hoped that A and B would be the choice.
Although in quite good condition the fairways are poorer than the prime combination, the
rough is much more punitive and the greens are a little inconsistent, the back nine (D)
being slower and more “grainy”.
The large field of 38 players was divided into three flights, cut at 13 and 22 and all three
saw some excellent golf and tight scoring.
In the third flight John Mason’s 32 points took third place on his return round and Richard
Dobson took second with 33 points. The flight winner was the old campaigner Vic Barton
for whom age and arthritis have been generous with his handicap. His 35 point return
showed he had lost none of his skill in the five years he has been absent from the group.
Welcome back Vic!
In the top flight Kevin Rogers took third with 34 points a couple behind runner-up Andy
Kelleher with 36. The flight winner was Tommy Marshall and he set the record straight
after his’wigging on the previous outing with an impressive 38 points this time.
In the second flight Harry Lankoff managed another solid round with 36 points giving him
third place, losing on countback to Soren Hansen. The winner was visitor Rob Knight who
set the best score of the day with 39 points and was thus awarded with his first Green
Near pins went to Wayne Peppernell (C8), Alan Walker (D2) and Len Jones (D8) with
Mike Firkin and Andrew Roberts inseparable on C4.

golfers in their best light.
