Tuesday The 24th February 2015: Mountain Shadow (Stableford)
The end of Feb and we are really nearly back to normal and the Low Season is on the horizon. On this morning we had a more manageable 6 groups available to dispatch to Mountain Shadow, so off they went. Nice drive down there with no stress and a very manageable group of players.
We seem to be at Mountain Shadow quite a lot lately and that is really because the players like to go there, it is a testing Course but not too testing and they give a good rate to us. On this day the Course seemed to be quite full but we were still off on time and the only dodgy part was the wind that never seems to go away.
So away we went on a Course that was windy, but really playing off the white tees we should have a great day on. And we did. A bit wind blown and in all reality the Course seemed a bit damp and the greens were a bit in and out, but who cares. With the sun shining and the company good we had a great round.
So a quick bite and back to BJ’s.
We were able to get the results underway on time as we got back at a reasonable time. In the A Flight, 0 to 20, the winner was Brian Parish with 40 points ahead of a countback on 36 points that saw Brian Gabe in second and Alan Sullivan in third. In the B Flight the winner was Mike O’Brien with 40 points ahead of Tom Cotton in second with 38 points and in third was Dave Cooper with 33 points.
This was also the last Tuesday of the month and The MBMG Group Golfer of the Month and with his fine 40 points on the final day Mike O’Brien was the winner. Well done Mike.
