Green Valley

19 players today for Green Valley 18 in the comp. The course still very soft after yesterdays rain .So lift clean and cheat. The 1st group out Dave Ferris, Gary Emmett, Steve Coghlan and John Dearden.  Dave was the best on the front with 19 pts Gary and Steve 18pts each and J.T.B. a poor start, The pace was a bit too much for Steve no blobs on the front then 5 on the back Dave also slipped back with 16 pts and Gary took his opertunity to go ahead with 20pts for 38pts.The next group a 3 ball Fred Birch, Yui and Jeff Acheson, yui was not in the comp so it was left to Fred and Jeff to battle it out  and Fred took it by 33pts to 32pts. The next group Aidan Murray,Ian Pickles, Peter Kelly & J.P. Maffray here it was Aidan after a poor start ,he then used his double shots wisely to just pip J.P. on the front 18pts. And then 2 blobs in the next 4 holes gave it to the handicap sec on a plate. Peter did not have the best front nine of his life but a good back gave him 31pts, Ian enjoyed the day out.The next group Eddie Beilby,Jim Bracket, Peter Le’Noury & the Donkey. The Donkey playing off his new Hcp at last got off to a flyer with a chip in birdie on the 1st only to be matched by Peter who had a tap in birdie, Jim was his usual steady selfand all three finished with 20 pts each on the front, but then the next hole everyone had a blob, so it was time for a calming Ice Cream at the drink stop and then the positions changed with Eddie getting 10pts from the next 3 holes to finish with only one shot separating all 4 2 x 34 & 2 x 35 pts. The final group Bob & Anne Stokes , Peter Petersen & Paul West, Bob was another with a good front 20pts but also 15pts on the back losing out on count back to the Donkey Anne did not have such a good day 15pts each side Peter was steady off his 4 hcp with 17pts each side and Paul played like his beloved Leeds Unt and wentr down as well.
