Phantom Golf Society 22/01
Pattavia – Stableford
John & Vero Just Too Good On The Day!
After the first 2 weeks of January being taken up by the PSC Club Championship and Colin’s Golf Society 3 day Tournament at the Green Valley complex it was business as usual with a combined competition at the Pattavia Golf Course. We had 6 groups signed up and a normal tee time of 10.00am which we were easily on time for despite the roadworks on 331 but we weren’t so lucky on the way home with a 1 hour & twenty minute journey due to the “crawl” for several kilometres once we got back on 331. Our first group got away 10 minutes ahead of schedule in perfect weather although a bit “steamy” with very little wind and the course was in good shape with the greens being considerably more friendly than has been reported lately. There were no major holdups in the earlier groups and our round was over in about four hours and 10 minutes.
We had 2 flights with A Flight being for handicaps 0 to 20 and B Flight for players with 21 handicap and over. In addition there were nearest the pins on 2 of the par threes and longest first putts on hole 9 and 18.
Playing exceptional golf it was one of my playing partners that won the A Flight with an almost flawless 41 points and Dave Dadwallader came second on 38 points and Mr Consistency (well most of the time) Christian “Psycho” Boysen ended up in third spot with 36 points. We had a “bolter” in the B Flight with Vero Morgan taking out first place with an outstanding 44 points. With 2 golfers tied 11 shots further back on 33 points a count back was needed which resulted in second place going to Jim Proctor (18 point back nine) and Peter Gangur (16 point back nine) finished in third spot.
A Flight – 0 to 20
1st – John Carlton (11) – 41 points
2nd – Dave Dadwallader (14) – 38 points

Friday 22nd January, 2016 – Mountain Shadow – Stableford
Christian, Nat & Nicklas On top At The Mountain!
With a fabulous field of 40 golfers we headed off to Mountain Shadow after confirming with the golf course that we would have more than the original 6 groups that we had booked for. The course was quite busy but we were able to get our first group away a few minutes ahead of our scheduled 10.00am tee time. The weather was fine being hot & humid and the golf course was in very good shape with the greens being firm and true. The field moved smoothly throughout the round and most of us completed the round in about four hours & twenty minutes.
With the large field we were able to have three flights, A Flight for 0 to 14, B Flight for 15 to 19 and C Flight for players with handicaps of 20 and over with three places in each flight. In addition there were four nearest the pins and 2 longest first putts on th 9th & 18th greens.
The winner in A Flight was Christian “Psycho” Boysen who had 34 points, 2 more that Gerd Riedler in second place and with 2 golfers on 30 points the resultant count back saw Ed Wyckoff (17 point back nine) finish third with Dave Cadwallader (15 point back nine) just missing out. Nat Rukkid (17 point back nine) was the winner of B Flight with 31 points on count back from Colin “Donkey” Davis (15 point back nine) in second place. In yet another count back to decide third place we had 2 players on 28 points and it was Dave Lehane (16 point back nine) who prevailed over a luckless Jayson Schembri (15 point back nine). With the best score of the day it was youngster Nicklas Lohse who triumphed in C Flight with a fine 39 points and Tore Eliassen was second with 36 points. It was count back time again with 2 on 32 points and third place was won by Vero Morgan (19 point back nine) and Barry Elphick (13 point back nine) just missed out.
