The Golf Club write-up for 2nd- 6th Nov.

Carr in the driver’s seat!

Monday 2nd – Green Valley – Stableford – White Tees
1st – Andy Makara (27) 42 points
2nd – Jack Grindvold (3) 40 points
T – 3rd – Brian Carr (30) 36 points
T – 3rd – Kevin Hamilton (16) 36 points
T – 3rd – Phil Smedley (10) 36 points

The battlefield of Green Valley was the sight of today’s turf war and the troops were dispatched right at our 09:27 attack time. We had a pretty good turnout today as well as some pretty good scores.

A three-way tie for third saw Brian, Kev and Phil all at 36 to equal their handicaps. All respectable scores, but a long way off the leader. Smilin’ Jack Grindvold seemed to have it in the bag with a big red 40 circled on the top of his scorecard. Indeed, 95% of the time that would surely be the winning score, no problem. Today was different, today was the turn for a high handicapper to take the prize and Andy Makara shooting a 42 did just that. Andy usually plays with us out here every Monday and it was good to see his experience here pay off.

Wednesday 4th – Greenwood – Stableford – White Tees
1st – Brian Carr (28) 41 points
2nd – Howard Cross (23) 39 points
T – 3rd – Fred Dawson (7) 37 points
T – 3rd – Dave Ferris (21) 37 points
5th – Alan Rothwell (8) 36 points

Here we go again, back up highway 331 to one of our favourite courses, Greenwood. Yes, it is a long haul to get here but it sure is worth it. When I say it is worth it, it is not just for the value but the course was in great condition and as we all know, the layout is hard to beat. A good turnout for today’s event saw Capt. Phil passing out Christmas cards to the top 5 blokes on the start sheet.

And top blokes they were, turning in some great scores that were all at their handicap or better. Alan Rothwell, the Mayor of New York, is back in town and wasted no time in getting back on a crowded podium with 36 points. Dave Ferris and Fred Dawson did him one better with a tie for third place at 37 Stableford points on their cards.

Watch out for the high handicappers, Howard Cross off 23 shot lights out and carded a 39, but our buddy Brian Carr had one of his best ever rounds. Timing is everything Howard, most days would have seen you the winner, but with a 41 it is Brian Carr who drives down victory lane today and stuck it to ‘em like they were Ole Miss. Go you Hogs! They got BA but we got BC!

We had an abbreviated golf schedule this week as we joined the Royal British Legion on Friday for the Poppy Day appeal for the Veterans of the Armed Forces so please see all the details of the competition in the local papers.
